Kanturk Intermediate footballers fell short at the semi final stages of this years Cork IFC when losing out to Mayfield on Saturday 10th October at Macroom. Kanturk entered the game buoyed by their replay victory over Cill na Martra a few weeks earlier but were rocked by a Mayfield goal in the opening minutes. To their credit Kanturk settled well and took a 0-4 to 1-0 lead after 10 minutes. Mayfield upped their game and took a commanding 5 point lead before Kanturk goaled to leave the scores 1-05 to 1-07 in favour of Mayfield at the interval.
A kanturk point on the resumption was a prelude to Mayfield superiority but a second Kanturk goal saw them close the gap to one point and after wasting some gilt edge opportunities Kanturk levelled with 5 minutes remaining. Mayfield reply was swift with a goal and when they added two points in the closing minutes, it was the city side which booked a place in the final and Kanturk were left to rue a missed opportunity but acknowledged the better side took the spoils on the night. For the record the final score was Kanturk 2-10 Mayfield 2-15.
