Cork City picked up their first win of the season as they defeated Bohemians 2-1 at Turners Cross this evening.
City responded impressively from last week’s 7-0 rout at Shelbourne with the home side the better team in opening quarter with chances from Becky Cassin and Aoife Cronin.
Kira Crosbie was the bright spark for Bohs’ down the right hand side and had their first chance on 26 minutes when she got in behind the City defence but her lobbed attempt was saved by Abby McCarthy.
The main story of the half however was Bohs’ defender Katie Burdis having to go off on a stretcher in the 41st minute after a heavy collision which forced a break in play for nearly seven minutes.
Bohs’ should have been ahead when play restarted as Sinead Taylor hit the post after a mistake from Danielle Burke.
City took complete control of the second half and finally got their breakthrough on 71 minutes when Aoife Cronin rounded goalkeeper Courtney Maguire to give the hosts a deserved lead.
Captain Becky Cassin got City’s second on 82 minutes when she got on the end of a great pass from Nathalie O’Brien to make it 2-0.
While Bohs’ ensured a grandstand finish when they got a goal back with two minutes left, Paul Farrell’s side held out to pick up their first three points of the season.
