Under 15A extend unbeaten run
Munster Senior League Premier Division
Midleton 0 College Corinthians 1
On Friday night in Midleton the seniors secured Premier league status with a hard fought victory over the home side, man of the match Ricky O Sullivan with the goal. It was a scrappy game where the lads were not at their best but at this stage of the season the points is all that matter. Perhaps the effort that went in to beating league champions Avondale Tuesday affected the lads. These back to back victories in the league mean the last game against Everton can be stress free. The injuries the senior team has had have been well documented, and even last night help was needed from the juniors and under 19s to field a team. Richard O'Donovan made the journey down from Dublin for the cause. Well done to all concernedictories mean the last league game v. Everton can be stress free! The injuries the senior team have had all season have been well documented and again last night they needed help from junior and under 19 players to field a team. Also Richard O Donovan made the journey down from Dublin to help the cause.
Well done to all involved.
Everton 0 Corinthian Boys 6
Corinthians started the game with great intensity, and despite playing into a strong wind controlled the game with great passing and movement.
Everton broke dangerously once after 10 minutes but a superb save from Alan Kelleher kept the shot out. Despite all the possession Corinthians had to wait until 5 minutes before half time to open the scoring. A Mark Cronin corner was sent into the net by a fine header from Jaze Kabia.
The second half started with Corinthians again playing great passing football . Adam Gilbride played a great ball to Rory Doyle who finished superbly to the net.
Daniel O Donovan shot was deflected to Rory Doyle who beat one man before shooting past the keeper. A good ball from Cian Morgan to Mark Cronin at the edge of the box was sent to the roof of the net. The fifth goal was an OG from the defender under pressure.
The sixth goal was a fine finish from Adam Gilbride following a great through ball from Mark Cronin. Padraig Nash, Ger O Mahony, Conor Fagan and Nathan O Donnell all played well in a great squad performance.

(Mikey O Doherty 2 Aaron Purcell 3 )
An excellent second half hatrick by substitute Aaron Purcell ensured victory for Corinthians.The game started rather slowly as Cors looked nervy at the beginning.
However Mikey O Doherty scored from a Cian Barry pass and later put Cors two up with a fine individual goal.Cors playing against a strong wind in the second half needed to ensure Katurk did not stage a comeback.Purcell duly obliged by converting most of the chances that came his way to earn a man of the match performance.Sean Canny was dominant in goal while Daniel Tyner, Mark O Regan , David Smith and Cathal Kelleher also played well.
Corinthian Boys A 1 Mayfield A 0
THE U15 second string made it ten points from a possible twelve as they maintained their push for a top four finish in Division Four. Adam Brennan grabbed his 12th goal of an impressive campaign shortly after half time in a tightly contested 80m minutes between two of the in-form sides in the division.
Fintan Ward and Brennan had good first half chances but the sides remained deadlocked at the interval. However Brennan latched onto a neat flick on in the 53rd minute to stroke home the only goal. Mayfield upped the intensity in the final quarter and Corinthians had to rely on keeper Matthew O'Mahony to stand tall and deny one clear cut chance. The sides meet again in Mayfield Thursday night.
Corinthians: M O'Mahony; R Hurley (R Dwane, ht), G Spillane, D Cronin (capt), M Anthony (C Kiernan, 55); D Leen, J. Quigley; T. Hyland (W Byrne, 68), F Ward, M Rohan; A Brennan.
