Roscommon bowed out of the All-Ireland championship after a last gaps point sent Cork into the quarter-final.
Kevin O’Donovan’s late point secured Cork victory as Roscommon fell to a last gaps point for the second week in-a-row.
Cork scoring a 1-14 to 0-16 victory to advance to the All-Ireland quarter-finals.
Roscommon started very well and control the first-half. Davy Burke’s side had led seven points to three, 10 minutes before half-time.
Enda Smith, Ciaráin Murtagh and Diarmuid Murtagh were all excellent in the opening period for the rossies.
However, Cork fought back and trailed by just a point at the break.
Rory Maguire levelled the game within two minutes of the restart. The hosts were the stronger in the third-quarter, leading the Rossies throughout.
A place in the last eight looked secured for John Cleary’s men when Conor Corbett found the net 13 minutes from time.
Cork led 1-13 to 12 points, before, Roscommon staged a fight back. Diarmuid Murtagh 2 frees, Daire Cregg and Ciaran Murtagh levelled the game.
A surprise free-kick, two minutes into injury time gave Cork the chance for victory. Kevin O’Donovan duly converted to end Roscommon’s season.
