Corinthian Boys 2 Everton 1
A good footballing display from Corinthians boys ensured a deserved 2-1 win at home to Everton. Corinthians dominated the first half, creating plenty of chances through players including Rory Doyle & Adam Coleman. But Cors were missing the clinical finishing required to convert the chances, resulting in a scoreless first half. A rejuvenated corinthians team increased the pace in the second half, working a tiring Everton team even harder in search of an opening goal. Corinthians' reward came 5 minutes in after a great run & pass by Conor Fagan was converted well by Jaze Kabia to break the deadlock. Cors' domination became clear 3 minutes later when an excellent Mark Cronin ball was chased down & finished superbly by Jaze Kabia. Everton soon pulled one back from Corinthians' failure to clear out of defence, to create a tense finish. But Corinthians held out for a deserved win thanks to great effort from players including Patrick Buckley & Conor Russell.Division 2

Killinardish Coachford 2 Corinthian Boys A 2
A point would have been a good result on any other day but had Corinthians not conceded an equaliser in the very last minute all 3 would have been in the bag. Killardish/Coachford started the better and went one up in the 13th minute.
Cors however responded soon after when Aaron Purcell was put through by Cian Barry to score. Purcell added a second later on to give Cors the lead at half time. Killardish/Coachford pushed on in the second half and despite Corinthians retreating they could have sealed victory had they taken chances themselves. Colm Power rattled the bar with a long range effort, Niall Moore went close while Aaron Purcell had a goal ruled out for offside. However Killardish/Coachford were rewarded for their persistence when Cors failed to defend to the final whistle. Best for Cors were Cian Barry, David Lyne , David Mc Gregor and Colm Power.

College Corinthians A 2 Wilton 2
A very enjoyable contest with Corinthians showing great character to come from behind twice to earn a share of the spoils. Regular marksman Daniel Kingston scored just after half time with a fantastic strike to level matters after Wilton had gone in front on the stroke of half time. Wilton thought they had secured all three points when they regained the lead in the 85th minute but Colm Daly earned Corinthians a deserved point when he snatched an equalizer in the 89th minute. John Cantwell was outstanding for Corinthians in what was a fine team performance.
