Corinthian Boys 1 Mallow Utd. 0
A narrow 1-0 win at home to Mallow gave Corinthians a lucky escape on a wet Sunday morning. Facing a wet, slippery pich and a questionable refereeing performance, corinthians had it all against them and it showed in the first half when the teams went in scoreless at half time, thanks to the cors back five including Alan Kelleher in goal and Conor Russell. Cors improved offensively in the second half though and should have been ahead more than once after a string of chances created well by Robert Cregan, Conor Fagen and Patrick Buckley. The deadlock was finally broken five minutes from time, when a well taken Rory Doyle free kick was finished into the back of the net by a hard-working Jaze Kabia. A late escape from corinthians, which was ultimately well deserved.Division 2

Corinthian Boys A 0 Mayfield Utd. 1
This was always going to be a tough ask for the boys in the National Cup against a side three divisions above them but they were more than able for the task. The lads pushed the visitors right to the wire and were unlucky not to get something from the tie at the death when Conor Nash rose in the box only to see his effort flash just wide of the far post. The game was an even encounter for the entire 80 minutes and the boys didn’t look to be in danger of conceding with John Weir and Cathal Kelleher in complete control of the well organised back four. There wasn’t much they could do however when a defence splitting ball from midfield put the Mayfield striker through on 70 minutes and he finished low and hard to goalkeeper Liam McCarthy’s left leaving him with no chance. The lads battled back and really worried the Mayfield defence with the visitors giving away a lot of free kicks to stop Corinthians attacks in the last 10 minutes and had two players booked. But it wasn’t to be and the lads were unable to equalise before time ran out. They can leave the cup and return to league action next weekend with their heads held high though having really put it up to a side that played premier football last season.
