With just one point to show from the entire game, the scoreline says it all for this encounter between Donegal and Cork in Mallow.
Maxi Curran’s side will well and truly need to dust themselves down after coming out on the wrong end of a 5-11 to 0-1 scoreline in this LIDL NFL league encounter.
Three goals in the first fifteen minutes by the home side from the boots of Libby Coppinger and Orlaith Cahalane effectively ended this game as a real contest.
Ciara McGarvey scored Donegal’s only score of the game in the seventh minutes to make 1-1 to 0-1 and at that stage there was no hint of the hammering which was to come.
Cork gradually turned the screw and went in at the break on a scoreline of 3-6 to 0-1.
Cork manager Shane Ronayne was so comfortable wiht how his side were in control that he introduced no less than fourteen subs in the second half.
Coppinger and Rachel Leahy added further goals in the second half as DOnegal wished the clock would run down quicker.
