No surprise on Newcestown winning. 2 yrs ago up 7 pts with 7 minutes to go And ran out of steam to loose in extra time . Damien Cahalane was very ordinary today. Not a good sign of where Cork is when 2 West Cork (Bandon)teams are beating city teams

East Cork perspective, so keep that in mind.

Carrigtwohill kept the pressure on Blackrock throughout the first half and seemed the better team at times, but during a wet second half, they relaxed their grip and paid the price. With acres of room in the last quarter Blackrock did pretty much as they pleased and could have had three goals, but blazed them all over the bar. I think Carrigtwohill will be very disappointed with the way they played in the second half when they weren't at the races at all.

Midleton seemed very slow to start (what's new?) and stuttered throughout the first half and Bishopstown weren't slow to gobble up any chance given them. Midleton, however, must have had their ears roasted at half time, because they played much better and were more aggressive after the break and gradually built up a cushion. However that performance won't win them any championship. From a Midleton supporter's point of view, the most pleasing thing about them was the full back line which was watertight.

Disappointing defeat for Na Piarsaigh today, Bride Rovers far superior

So you went with all the favourites? Personally I think midleton will have a right cut off the glen and i think the douglas barrs game will be a lot closer than the bookies suggest too, there's something about Douglas they have an outrageously good team but never seem to go anywhere

Two decent games down the Pairc today. Barrs upsetting the odds and beating Douglas, can’t say I’m shocked by this result though, Douglas being too hyped up as always.
Glen and Midleton was a better game, two superior teams, Glen will be kicking themselves that they left it behind them, especially having a man advantage with 7-8 mins to go! Lehane stole the show with 1-10, 1-7 from play. Big win for Midleton, will give them great confidence going in against Newtown who had a comfortable win against Bride.
Ucc with a one point win against Erin’s Own, would love to see their team if anyone could shed some light on this!

2good games in Pairc today,think Barr's deserved their win,showed a lot of heart. Mid should have beaten Gen by a lot more,sloppy at times. Hoggie not on his game today , a few other big players didn't show either for them. If Mid want to progress they'll have to get more out of forwards and tighten half back line. How long more can the depend on Lehane,who was savage again for them. He's some player to watch. He's been their go to player for years, others need to step up. Glen management have some questions to answer too.Barr's will be tough assignment for most teams.

Two very different types of matches yesterday in the Park. The Barrs brought a ferocious intensity to their game with Douglas which Douglas weren't expecting and they spent most of the first half just struggling to stay in a match which St Finbarrs threatened to run away with. But they fought back from what looked like a hopeless position to make it uncomfortable for the Barrs in the end. Overall, though, the Barrs edged it.

The refereeing was of the Brian Cody style of Let the Fouls Flow, with dragging, barging and mauling all through the game, and a referee more interested in technical infringements than in physical fouls.

There was more pure hurling in the Glen and Midleton game which made it enjoyable to watch. Midleton went ahead with an early goal which enabled them to lead for most of the match. In the first half for a brief few minutes they were seven points ahead. Patrick Horgan missed a couple of frees which he normally wouldn't, including a penalty saved by Tommy Wallace, but still there was only two points in it at half time. The second half was about staying ahead of the posse for Midleton, matching the Glen score for score, until about nine minutes from the end when the Glen finally edged ahead. When Midleton had a man sent off shortly afterwards, with the Glen two points in front, it looked like the end of the road for them, but they dug in and increased their tackling and a point with two minutes of injury time left saw them take the lead again which they held until the end.
