Noel McGrath seals brilliant comeback, Tipp 4-21 Cork 2-28

Four second half Cork goals looked like it would be enough for the Rebels hit their first two majors in a 60 second blitz that saw Conor Lehane and Patrick Horgan beat Darragh Egan in the Tipp goal on 42 and 43 minutes to put them seven points clear.
Ten minutes later they repeated the trick with sub Paudie O'Sullivan reacting quickest to a ball that came back off the post before Horgan bagged his second with a ground stroke. That score put them 12 points to the good on a 4-19 to 0-19 scoreline and seemingly out of sight with less than 15 minutes to play.
But Tipp slowly built momentum. Goals from Kieran Bergin and Jason Forde cut the gap while Noel McGrath was in fine point scoring form he kept his cool to convert what would be the winning score after some good approach work from James Woodlock and Seamus Callanan.
Cork had the edge in the first half but Tipp squandered two goal chances in the opening period. On 20 minutes, Anthony Nash pulled off a tremendous save from Brendan Maher after he had been put clear by Niall O'Meara. From the resultant clearance Cork pointed through Cormac Murphy to move three clear.

It looked to be a significant passage of play as the Rebels opened up a five point lead heading into the break but Tipp closed the gap with a scores from Noel McGrath and Seamus Callanan (two). Indeed, Callanan might have goaled but his flicked effort dropped just over Nash's bar to leave the home side 0-15 to 0-13 up at the break.
Nash would pull off another brilliant save from Callanan in the second half before the goals started to flow and Tipp pulled off their amazing recovery.

Cork: P Horgan 2-8 6f, S Harnedy 0-5, C Lehane 1-1, P O'Sullivan 1-0, C Murphy, D Kearney 0-2 each, A Walsh, R O'Shea, A Cadogan 0-1 ea

Tipperary came through a tempestuous battle with Offaly but their win came at a price as they lost Kieran Bergin to a serious injury early in the second half, while Seamus Callanan was shown a straight red card for an off the ball strike on Dermot Shortt.
The Premier men played with the aid of a fiercely strong breeze in the first half and after both sides traded early points, Tipp tacked on 1-11 while conceding just a solitary point in reply over the next 25 minutes. They led by 1-14 to 0-4 at half time, but they never regained that momentum once Callanan saw red two minutes after the restart.
The Premier County were further depleted when they lost Cathal Barrett to a second yellow with six minutes to play,to hold out in the face of a late Offaly onslaught.
They held Tipp to just a solitary point over the last half an hour of this tie, but they had sustained far too much damage in the early stages, particularly considering the excellent form of Darragh Egan in the Tipperary goal was rock solid under the high ball over the course of the tie, while he also produced four top quality saves, including three in the last five minutes, to deny Offaly the goal that they badly needed to set up a grandstand finish
Séamus Callanan and Shane Dooley exchanged points in the first seven minutes, while Offaly could have taken the lead were it not for a couple of poorly struck attempts on goal. They started to sustain a series of blows from the tenth minute onwards, however, and then were truly rocked back on their heels after 18 minutes when Callanan cut in along the left hand end line and blasted an acute angle shot past James Dempsey for a simply stunning goal to push Tipp eight points in front.
Shane Dooley broke Tipp's run of scores with a free in response, but Tipperary continued to pile on the pressure and with Kieran Bergin (midfield) and Brendan Maher (centre-forward) both in control of their key diamond position battles, they accumulated a healthy thirteen point half time lead. Both players posted three points from play in the tie, which will make Tipperary supporters all the more hopeful regarding Bergin's ankle injury that necessitated a quick trip to the neighbouring hospital, a blow that was sustained early in the second half.
Offaly's defence appeared far more assured with the assistance of an extra man but while they stopped the bleeding at one end of the field, they were slow to set about eating into the lead at the other.
Tipperary maintained their double figure lead up until the 58th minute, when points from Stephen Quirke and Shane Dooley inside 60 seconds gave Offaly a little bit of momentum. Faithful County manager Brian Whelahan has had to perform something of a juggling act this year with most of his forward players far more comfortable in the inside forward line rather than out on the 45, and there was further evidence of this when Brian Carroll took the tie by the scruff of the neck once moved up to top of the right for the last 15 minutes. The Coolderry native drove at the Tipperary goal to great effect, setting up one close range free and drawing a penalty, also causing Cathal Barrett to receive a second yellow card for the former offence.

Offaly: S Dooley 0-7 (0-3f, 0-1 '65), J Bergin, S Quirke & B Carroll 0-2 each.
Tipp: S Callanan 1-6 (0-4f), K Bergin & B Maher 0-3 each, J Forde, R Maher, N McGrath, N O'Meara 0-1 each.

TIPPERARY: D Egan; P Stapleton, C O'Mahony, C Barrett; M Breen, Pádraic Maher, R Maher; J Woodlock, K Bergin; J Forde, B Maher, Patrick Maher; N McGrath, S Callanan, N O'Meara. Subs: S McGrath for Bergin (44), S Bourke for O'Meara (57), C Kenny for Forde (61), Sean Maher for Patrick Maher (69)
