National Cup

Corinthians Under 14 Premier made it through to the final of the National Cup for the second year in succession when they overcame Castlebar Celtic on a 3-1 scoreline.

In a highly entertaining contest Corinthians opened brightly and were in front on five minutes when the always dangerous Robert Geaney O’ Brien scored from close range. To their credit Castlebar responded well and playing good football they deservedly equalized on 14 minutes when they forced the ball home from close range after a tremendous strike from distance came back off the underside of the cross bar.  Corinthians stunned by this reverse hit back almost immediately when inspirational captain Mathew Healy scored a superb individual goal. The rest of the first half was end to end with chances and near misses aplenty but it was Corinthians who were to add to their advantage when Robert Geaney O’ Brien turned sharply in the penalty box before firing home. Though 3-1 up at the break Castlebar had shown enough in the first half to indicate that they were more than capable of getting nack in the game.

 

The opening stages of the second half saw Corinthians gaining control in the middle of the park with David Welch, Daniel Meade and Mathew Healy now pulling the strings, George Comber was a live wire on the right flank while the back four of Sean Cantillon, Eoin Redmond, Shabe Cotter (had replaced Daniel Squires who had received a bad blow to the head) and Michael Nason were now putting the shackles on the lively Castlebar fromt men.  Up front Robert Geaney was proving a major handful for the Castebar defense and it looked only amatter of time before Corinthians extended their advantage. However with the help of the woodwork and some brave last ditch defending Castlebar kept their goal intact and battled away to the final whistle still trying to play good football but lacking penetration.

So the delighted home crowd cheered loudly at the final whistle delighted to be back in the final where Corinthians will play last year’s conquerors St. Joseph Boys.

Well Done to Mark John and Craig and to all the players and parents on a fantastic effort, reaching the final two years in a row is a fantastic achievement and hopefully they can go one step further this year.

 

Under 15

Local Cup

Corinthian Boys 5 – Macroom 2

 

Playing their 3rd away cup game in 10 days the u15's progressed to a cup semi final with a 5-2 win. Starting very well, Dean Harte and Alex Minihane were causing Macroom a lot of difficulty down the wing, after 15 minutes a strong run and finish by Ricardo Dinanga opened the scoring.

Macroom were playing with the aid of a strong breeze and causing a few problems for the defence, a speculative shot bounced over the diving Matthew O'Connor, 5 minutes later confusion in the Corinthians defence led to another goal for Macroom. However the  lead did not last long, strong play by a number of players lead to 3 goals before half time , Ricardo getting 2 more and 1 from Alex Minihane.

In the second half Macroom did not present any threat but defended well only conceding one more goal to Alex Minihane. The team will now face Greenwood in the semi final, with a draw to take place to decide home advantage.

The next game is a league game away to Coachford on Wednesday night.

 

Squad: Matthew O'Connor, Dean Harte, Jack McFall, Sean Dunlea, Scott Philpott, Jeff Holden, Fionn Molloy, Alex  Minihane, Adam Hunt, Ricardo Dinanga, Dara Connell, Liam Edwards, Leo Barron, Cathal Hynes, David Fox, Adam Ida
