Dylan Mehigan scores late point for Nemo to send county football final to a replay

CASTLEHAVEN and Nemo Rangers must do it all over again after they drew (0-10 apiece) the Cork SFC final in Pairc Ui Rinn on Sunday evening.

This is the first drawn Cork SFC final since 1999.

Nemo went into an early 0-3 to 0-0 lead before Castlehaven fought their way back into the game, with Mark Collins getting them off the mark in the 12th minute.

Barry O’Driscoll made it 0-4 to 0-1 to Nemo, who lost Luke Connolly to injury, before points from Brian Hurley (2) and Michael Hurley levelled the game, 0-4 apiece, after 23 minutes.

Scores from Shane Nolan and Mark Collins made it five Haven points in a row before Jack O’Donovan got Nemo back on track with a late first-half score.

Damien Cahalane sent the Haven into half time with a two-point lead when he scored late on, 0-7 to 0-5.

The second half began in a Nemo whirlwind as Paul Kerrigan (2) and Barry O’Driscoll sent the city men into a 0-8 to 0-7 lead.

But the Haven’s experience shone through as Brian Hurley (2) and Mark Collins pushed the West Cork team 0-10 to 0-8 in front, only for Barry O’Driscoll (free) to make it a one-point game inside the final ten minutes.

Dylan Meighan then came up with an equaliser, for Nemo, 0-10 apiece, before Paul Kerrigan received a red card for a second yellow card offence.

Both sides missed late chances to win the game.



Castlehaven: Brian Hurley 0-4 (3f), Mark Collins 0-3, Michael Hurley, Shane Nolan, Damien Cahalane 0-1 each.

Nemo Rangers:  Barry O’Driscoll 0-3 (1f), James Masters 0-2f, Paul Kerrigan 0-2, Luke Connolly (45), Jack O’Donovan, Dylan Mehigan 0-1 each.
