Corinthian Boys A 1 Killinardish Coachford 0 AET
Corinthians had a hard fought but a well deserved victory over Killinardish Coachford in the first round of the Founders Cup. It was end to end action through out with both goalkeepers excelling despite the difficult wet conditions. It took a fine individual strike from Roger Timons midway through the second period of extra time to finally break the deadlock, his strike from just outside the area flew into the top corner of the net giving the Killinardish goalkeeper no chance.
Douglas Hall 7 Corinthian Boys B 0
Corinthian Boys 4 Carrigaline Hibernians 0
he Under 13 Premier team progressed to the next round of the National Cup after a very disappointing first half display. Numerous chances were missed by Corinthians and the half ended goalless.
The team had a great start to the second half with a goal by Adam Idah inside a minute. The lads started to play a more controlled possession game with Conor Murphy dominating in midfield following his introduction at half time.
Fionn Molloy scored following a dummy by David Fox who scored himself, shortly afterwards with a close range volley from a good cross by Adam Idah. Killian McGown and Leo Barron added width to the attack, with Carrigaline now under constant pressure. They conceded another goal from a good through ball by Liam Edwards which was finished by Adam Idah.
The team have an away league match to Riverstown next week.

Greenwood 4 Corinthian Boys A 1
Corinthians were knocked out of The National Cup by 4 goals to 1 in Togher on Saturday morning in a match that was much closer than the scoreline suggests. In a very evenly contested first half, Corinthians created the better early chances through Brian Lagrue whose shot just missed the target with the keeper well beaten and Ruairi Moriarty who went close with one shot and had another cleared off the line. Greenwood scored 3 goals late in the first half, all from crosses that the Corinthians' defence failed to deal with.
he lads showed great character in the second half and went close a couple of times with substitute Andrew Greany in particular causing problems for the Greenwood defence. Corinthians' second substitute, Gabor Farkas made an immediate impact when he won the ball in midfield and sent Andrew Kelleher clear on the right, his cross found Ben Lucey who scored from close range. Corinthians continued to attack for the last 15 minutes but it was Greenwood who scored again with a well taken goal after a quick counter attack.
Carrigaline Hibernians 1 Corinthian Boys 5
On a difficult day for football, Corinthians showed their worth with a comfortable 5-1 victory away to Carrigaline Hibernians in the National Cup. Facing a motivated opposition & poor pitch, Corinthians had to be focussed to live up to their favourites tag. From the off Cors set the tone & were rewarded 5 mins in when Daniel O' Donovan picked out an oncoming Colin O' Mahoney who finished well first time into the top corner. Daniel O' Donovan soon got a goal of his own which doubled Corinthians lead but Carrigaline then pulled one back from a corner after a mix-up in the Cors defence. Corinthians then took control, increasing the tempo & the quality of football which resulted in a third scored by Jaze Kabia & assisted from a through ball by Patrick Buckley. The second half's potential for more entertaining football was marred by the decreasing state the pitch, which had felt the effects of the harsh weather & was now not fit for football. This didn't dampen spirits though, which was proved by the attitudes of both teams who battled until the end. It was Corinthians who drew first blood again after 5 mins with Conor Fagan's good work allowing Adam Coleman to finish well for Cors' fourth. The game was finally wrapped up with 15 mins to go when Rory Doyle set up Robert Cregan to strike the ball superbly into the top corner. An excellent performance and effort in difficult conditions from the whole team including Mark Cronin, Tony Brophy & Conor Russell, which gives Corinthians a well deserved place in the next round.Under 15
Corinthian Boys 6 Bandon 0
Corinthian Boys made their way through to last 32 of the National Cup with a comprehensive win over a Bandon side that played right to the final whistle. While in form strikers Cian Leonard, nothing up 5, and Eoin Davis adding to that tally were doing their stuff at one end, goalkeeper David O'Keeffe was in top form at the other diistributing the ball well and making some outstanding saves to keep another clean sheet. Corinthians had a rock solid defence in David Nason, Ciaran Couch, James O'Donovan & Conor Shalloe who played confidently out of the defence and linked well with their midfield of Stephen Fox, Chris Healy, James Holland and Keith White. Corinthians can be proud of their performance and the quality of the goals scored which all came from some terrific build up play. There were also good performances from Nathan Manson Brown, Oshin Lucas & Donagh Gribbon.
Blarney Utd. 0 Corinthian Boys 3
Corinthians went ahead after 9 minutes when Harry Shanahan ran down the right and fired a cross in to Colin O Brien who rifles the ball past the Blarney keeper on the near post. It remained 1-0 at half time.
