Corinthian Boys   5  Villa AFC  0

This weekend saw Corinthians ease past Villa AFC of Waterford in the last 32 of the SFAI National Cup to book a home draw with River Valley Rangers of Dublin in the last 16 thanks to a convincing 5-0 win.

Aidan Barry got the scoring underway when he latched on to a loose ball in the box from a Brandon Idah corner and fired past the Villa keeper who was unlucky not to get more than a hand in the strike. The second goal came courtesy of a Brandon Idah penalty. He fired it in to corner to make it 2-0 after the penalty was awarded for handball by the defender when he got in the way of a Luke O'Leary shot which came at the end of a brilliant team move.

It was 3-0 just after the break when Jack Anthony nonchalantly used his shoulder to direct the ball in to the net from an inch perfect corner from Robert Walsh. The fourth goal was almost a carbon copy of the third, only this time Jack volleyed it goalwards from Robert's corner.

It was 5-0 with virtually the last kick of the game, Ryan Kelleher picking the ball up on the edge of the box after good work on the right from Tomás Hyde and picking out the far corner with an excellent left footed shot. 

I'm sure the opponents for the next round will be worried by what they saw after making the long trip down from Dublin especially for the scouting opportunity. 


Under 16

Arklow Utd.  0  Corinthian Boys  2

Corinthian Boys made it through to the quarter final of the Under 16 National Cup with a fine team performance against a very committed Arklow side. Corinthians looked the better side throughout but struggled to turn their dominance into goals.  The Arklow keeper was excellent throughout and despite creating several chances in the opening half Corinthians could not break the deadlock.

However it was a different story in the second period as Corinthians went in front courtesy of a fine finish from Keith White. They were now playing good football all over the pitch with net minder Dave O’ Keeffe and the back four of Conor Shalloe, Ciaran Couch, Chris Healy and James O’ Donovan very solid, Ethan Hurley and Stephen Fox were on top in midfield with wide players Keith White and Donagh Gribbons always penetrating. With the front two of Cian Leonard and Eoin Davis very lively and threatening, it was not long before a second arrived. This time it came from the penalty spot as Cian Leonard converted after his striking partner Eoin Davis had missed from the penalty spot two minutes earlier

Under 11

Division 3

Kinsale  0  Corinthian Boys  1

This top of the table clash provided a very tight competitive game with both defences on top throughout.  Corinthians started very brightly and playing with the wind to their backs hit the post in the first minute with a great shot from Sean O’Leary.  David Bennett was just wide with a great effort after good work on the right by Fiachra Twohig.  Corinthians were on top with great play from William Buckley, Miceal O’Mahony and Sean O’Leary but couldn’t make the breakthrough before half time.

The second half began with Kinsale upping the pace and going at Corinthians.  Adam Collins with excellent in goals and great defending from James Fox and Shane Tobin ensured that chances from Kinsale were kept to a minimum.  It was nip and tuck all the way and the game was always going to be decided by whoever scored the first goal.  Fortunately it was Corinthians who made the breakthrough with 12 minutes to go.  Great build up work by Shane and Sean created the opening for David Bennett, who despite having a lot of work to do, finished brilliantly into the roof of the net.

Corinthians saw out the rest of the game with a strong defensive display and a determination to keep another clean sheet. They deserved this hard earned victory over a previously unbeaten Kinsale side.

A Collins, J Fox, S Tobin, B Lombard, M O’Mahony, Wm Buckley, F Twohig,  S O’Leary,  D Bennett, A Young, D Odigie, J O’Callaghan

Premier Division

Corinthian Boys  6  Lakewood Ath.  1

On a cold wet Saturday morning at Castletreasure Corinthian Boys U13s had a comfortable 8-1 victory over Lakewood. After 12 minutes, Daniel Meade opened the scoring for Corinthians, forcing home a David Welch corner kick.  Though Corinthans enjoyed the majority of the possession Lakewood looked dangerous on the break. It took a fine save from Corinthians keeper Cian O'Leary on 15 minutes to keep Lakewood scoreless. On the stroke of half-time Daniel Squires scored with a powerful header from another David Welch corner to leave the score 2-0 going into the second half. Corinthians dominated this half and started to convert their chances. Daniel Meade made it 3-0 after 36 minutes. Lakewood then scored against the run of play after a fine breakout from defence to put the score at 3-1. Any hope of a comeback by the visitors were firmly dashed with further goals from Alex Hill, Destiny Okonkwo, two from George Coomber and Daniel Meade completed a fine hat trick. The final scoreline was Corinthians 8 Lakewood 1.  

Team: C. O'Leary, D. O'Sullivan, D. Squires, E. Redmond, M Nason, A. Hill, J Harte, D. Meade, M Redmond, D. Welch (G. Coomber 43), J. Leonard (D. Okonkwo 40).

Division 2

Corinthian Boys A  2  Carrigtwohill Utd.  0

The lads went into the game 5 points off the top. Both teams traded equal blows in the first half and went in at halftime 0-0. Corinthians started the second half with some solid passing and soon were rewarded with a goal when James Wilson O'Callaghan centred the ball for Dylan who made no mistake placing the ball low and center. Carrigtwohill didn't give up and continued to apply the pressure but a second goal scored by James Wilson O'Callaghan with 8 mins to go put the game out of reach for the team. Despite a few goal mouth scares the lads kept a clean sheet and moved within 2 points of the leaders with 7 games remaining. Big thanks to Emmanuel and Conor from

the U12a who offered their services on the day. Great performances from both lads.

Under 17

Division One

Blarney Utd. A  0  College Corinthians A  2

Another fine team performance by Corinthians who were always in control and continued to make a threat throughout the game. However had a bit of luck as with the game scoreless in the second half Blarney squandered the opportunity to go ahead when blasting wide from a penalty kick. Cors nevertheless deserved the victory, provided when Sean Goggin first composed himself on the edge of the penalty area to fire into the top corner. Goggin again minutes later duplicated the lead with a similar effort after numerous Corinthians corners. David Mc Gregor and Daniel Tyner were always dominate in defence limiting Blarney to only one shot on target, while Sean Goggin worked extremely hard and deserved his two goals.
