Fine away victory for under 11B squad in local cup
Leeside 0 Corinthian Boys B 2
Leeside who were unbeaten in all competitions this season provided a stern test for Corinthians. In a keenly contested first half not many chances were given up by either defence. Corinthians were on top tough especially through the good play of Micael O'Mahony, Shane Tobin and Sean O'Leary. Corinthians took a deserved lead after 22 minutes when Sean O'Leary finished off a good move between Brian Lombard and David Bennett.
The second half started off with Leeside upping the pace and getting on top for the first 10 minutes but stout defending from James Fox and Fiachra Twohig kept them at bay. A decisive second goal came 15 minutes into the second half. Great work on the right by Sean O Leary & Diarmaid O'Regan ended with a great cross from Sean with David Bennett volleying home expertly low to the keepers right. It was a great goal , a fitting finish to a dogged contest where Corinthians were tested in every aspect of their game.
Corinthians move into the last 16 of the Local Cup with top performances from Sean O Leary Miceal O Mahony and Shane Tobin.
