Villa  1   Corinthian Boys  2

Corinthian Boys U13s are safely through to the quarter finals of the National Cup after a tremendous 2-1 victory away to Villa FC in Waterford. Villa began strongly against a tense Corinthians and looked dangerous on the attack. Corinthians gradually settled and started to play good possession football whilst playing against a very strong wind. However, on 25 minutes the homeside scored the opener with a tremendous 25 yard shot. Not for the first time this season, Corinthians reacted positively and were unlucky not to equalise before half time. Their deserved breakthrough came in the second minute after the resumption. A defensive mixup was punished by a fabulous individual effort from Robert Geaney O'Brien. Within a minute, Corinthians took the lead somewhat fortuitously from an unfortunate own goal by a Villa defender. Corinthians to a man defended their lead stoutly for the remainder of the match to clinch a deserved 2-1 victory. 

Team: C. O'Leary, S. Cotter,  E. Redmond,  D. Squires,  S. Cantillon,  G. Coomber (M. Redmond 50), D. Meade,  M. Healy,  M. Nason (J. Leonard 45), D. Welch (J. Harte 50), R. Geaney O'Brien.

Corinthians Boys 1 – 2 Cherry Orchard

The Under 14 premier team bowed out of the National Cup at the last 16 stage to a big and powerful Cherry Orchard team. Corinthians started nervously playing against a strong wind they conceded a number of corners in the first 10 minutes, while they managed to defend them .

On 11 minutes a speculative cross managed to evade the defence and goalkeeper ending up in the bottom corner of the net. Worse was to come 5 minutes later a free kick on the edge of the box cleared the wall and finished in the roof of the net.

The lads responded well finally getting onto the game and with Adam Idah a constant threat
he was unlucky not to score on 2 occasions In the 35 minute Ricardo Dinanga, who had an excellent game, played a defence splitting pass through for Adam Idah, who hit a fantastic shot to the bottom corner of the net.

The goal couldn’t have come at a better time and set the 2nd half up for the team. While they started at a high tempo they couldn’t break down a well organised Cherry Orchard defence. Scott Philpott, who had an outstanding match, was unlucky with 2 free kicks but other than that the were no real stand out chances.

We would like to thank all the parents, especially the ladies for all the help and support in organising the food etc for the visitors.

Team: R Lombard, D.Murphy, J.McFall, S.Philpott, L.Barron, D.Fox, C.Murphy, J.Holden, R.Dinanga, F.Molloy, A.Idah. Subs:, O’O’Keeffe, M.Hill, L.Edwards, K.McGowan, J.Holden

Nenagh Town 1  Corinthian Boys  2

Corinthians made it into the quarter final of the national cup with a great team performance in difficult conditions at the weekend.  Playing against a strong wind in the first half our lads found themselves under pressure from the start and only for a super save by keeper Alan Kelleher the home side would have taken the lead after 5 minutes. After this early scare our lads started to take control of the game and midway through the first half Eoin Carey and then Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh came close to the first goal of the game. 


The home side opened the scoring on the half hour mark when the ball was fired home from close range.  


Playing with the wind in the second half the Corinthians midfield of Cathal Keane and Daniel O'Donovan were now in total control of the game. Ten minutes into the half a Rory Doyle cross found Keane at the edge of the box and he fired into the back of the net. 


With 20 minutes to go and the game back on level terms the Corinthians lads went in search of a winner. When the ref awarded Corinthians a free kick 30 yards out up stepped Connor Russell to riffle the ball into the roof of the net. 


After that Nenagh looked dangerous on the counter attack but defenders Patrick Buckley, Fenton Barrett,Mark Cronin and Colin O'Mahony were up to the challenge. 


In the end it was a well deserved victory and a great performance from the lads

Corinthians are through to the semi final of the National Cup after a thrilling and heart stopping victory over St. Kevins Boys.  It was a remarkable contest with Corinthians opening brilliantly and racing into a two goal lead with gioals from Colin O’ Brien and Gavin Johnson and when St. Kevins were reduced to 10 players on the half hour mark it looked as if the game was over.

To their credit St. Kevins were to play better with ten players than they had with eleven and they came close to reducing the deficit before half time with Corinthians ne minder Dave Coffey making a fine save from a close range header.

The second half opened in a similar fashion and it was no surprise when St. Kevins reduced the deficit in the 55th minute following a corner. Corinthians raised their game again and looked to have wrapped up the game when Colin O’ Brien restored his sides two goal advantage with twenty minutes remaining with a fine header.

But in what was a roller coaster of a second half, St. Kevins got back in to the game again when they made it 3-2 with only three minutes left. There was still time for Corinthians who made it 4-2 from a penalty by Brian Cotter and for Kevins to yet again to reduce the deficit to a single goal when they made it 4-3 deep into injury time. Corinthians were relieved to hear the final whistle seconds later for what was just about a deserved victory.

Congrats to Cormac Cotter, Declan Cooke and their squad on a great win and commiserations to St. Kevins who when reduced to ten players showed what a fine team they are.
