Fine win for Cors U16P in Carrigaline
Match report U16 Premier Corinthians 3 v Carrigaline 1
On a foggy astro in Carrigaline on Sunday morning we maintained our 100% start to the season with a hard fought 2-1 win over rivals Carrigaline. We began the game slowly and struggled somewhat to come to terms with the 3-5-2 formation used by Carrigaline. We went one down on 25 minutes after a well finished move by Carrigaline and this along with some necessary adjustments to out system seemed to wake us up. Our equaliser came just before half time from an exquisite finish from last year’s player of the year Fionn Molloy who found the top corner from just outside the box.
After the break we continued to dominate the game and our front four of Ricardo, Alex, Mathew and Daragh were starting to pile on the pressure. The winner eventually came from Mathew O’ Reilly after some brilliant wing play from Alex Minihane. It was just reward for an excellent second half display from our entire squad. Everyone contributed significantly to the win but perhaps best for Corinthians was Scoot Philpott who was simply immense in the back four four
