Ringmahon Rangers 1 Corinthian Boys 3
Playing some of their best football of the season so far the Corinthians lads maintained their unbeaten run with a fine 3-1 win away to Ringmahon this weekend.
The Cors. boys were quick of the mark and found themselves 1 up after 10 minutes when a close range shot from Conor Fagan hit the back of the net after some fine work by Colin O'Mahony and Jaze Kabia.
At this stage it was all Corinthians and Rory Doyle was unlucky to see his effort come back off the crossbar with the keeper well beaten . The second goal of the game came after 20 minutes when Robert Cregan raced onto a through ball from Daniel O'Donovan and fired home from the edge of the box.
Ringmahon started the second half in a much more determined mood and were rewarded with a goal after 50 minutes.
The home side now went in search of an equaliser but two fine saves from Alan Kelleher and some strong tackles from Conor Russell and Tony Brophy soon put a stop to any hope of them getting a second.
Corinthians killed the game off with 5 minutes remaining when Adam Coleman set Mark Cronin up inside the box and his low drive gave the home keeper no chance.
Paul Kelleher and his coaches were very pleased with the teams all round performance and happy to take all three point from a very strong Ringmahon side.
Corinthian Boys A 3 Greenwood 1
Far from convincing from the Corinthians lads as Greenwood put it up to them creating most of the chances in the first half. The boys got a grip on the game just before half time but failed to capitalise or even test the keeper however. Greenwood took the lead straight from the kick off with the boys asleep and with no one in a blue shirt prepared to take responsibility to stop the attack. Fortunately it was the shot in the arm they needed and Patrick O’Callaghan equalised 5 minutes later when he twisted and turned in the box and squeezed the ball in at the near post past the keeper. The boys pressed from here without really threatening but 15 minutes in Conor Nash put them ahead when he latched onto a huge clearance from goalkeeper Liam McCarthy and kept his composure to slot it past the Greenwood keeper. Things got worse for Greenwood immediately after when they had a man put off for a second yellow. Instead of closing out the game the boys switched off again and were lucky not to concede with Greenwood doing all the pressing and not looking as if they were a man down, but Greenwood lost another man through injury and having made all of their subs they were down to 9 for the last 12 minutes. This was enough to give the boys all 3 points and Daniel Hurley made sure when he put the boys 2 up just before the final whistle. The boys go back to the top of the table but will have to show some leadership on the field or it will be short lived. Best for the boys were John Weir, Conor Nash and Patrick O’Callaghan.
