Midleton 3 Corinthian Boys A 2
Corinthians started well and took a well deserved lead half way through the first half. Daniel Hart put Brian Lagrue clear on the right and he delivered the perfect cross for Andrew Greany to score with a great header. The lads were in control of the game and were playing some good passing football but they just could't get that all important second goal. The game changed dramatically when Midleton scored 2 goals just before half time, both goals resulting from lack of concentration in the Corinthian defence.
The lads went on the attack in the second half and went close a few times with Ben Lucey and Brian Lagrue putting the Midleton defence under pressure from the flanks. Andrew Greany scored the equaliser with fifteen minutes left with another fine header from a David Cotter cross. Corinthians could have won the game when Andrew Kelleher played a great through ball to David Cotter but his shot was blocked by the keeper. It proved not to be the lads day when Midleton scored the winner in the dying seconds.
Corinthian Boys B Richmond
Douglas Hall 1 Corinthian Boys 1
In this battle between two local rivals corinthians deserved more from a 1-1 draw against Douglas hall. It was cors that started the better & it showed when the deadlock was broken after 15 mins when Mark Cronin found Jaze Kabia over the top & his fine finish put corinthians 1-0 up. It stayed that way until half-time thanks to good defensive displays from both teams. Corinthians were then rewarded for their hard work when Rory Doyle was awarded a penalty after being taken down in the area. They couldn't double their lead though as the resulting kick taken by Jaze Kabia came back off the crossbar. Cors were soon left to rue that miss when a poorly defended corner resulted in the equaliser douglas hall were looking for 5 mins from time. An excellent display from the whole corinthians team, including Tony Brophy, Conor Russell & Ger O'Mahony, helped to continue their unbeaten start to the league campaign.
Corinthian Boys 6 Leeds 2
Buttevant 1 Corinthian Boys B 5
Corinthian Boys A 3 Leeds A 0
Another win for the boys as they worked hard to see of a very strong and physical Leeds side with three well taken second half goals. It was an evenly contested first half with the Corinthians back four looking comfortable and building attack after attack but the boys found a Leeds defence in equally good form and never really troubled the opposition goal. The game opened up with twenty minutes remaining however as players from both sides tired from the battle and there was some great work from Patrick O'Callaghan as he twisted and turned inside the box only to see his right footed effort creep the wrong side of the post. It was O'Callaghan who broke the deadlock soon after as some intricate play by the midfield duo of David Harrington and Joe Cremin found him unmarked inside the box and he coolly slotted beyond the Leeds keeper and it was no more than the boys deserved. He got his second soon after when Davie Scott played a terrific ball over the top and O'Callaghan's pace was too much for the Leeds centre half, he brushed him aside and buried the first time shot with the keeper stranded making it four goals now in two games for the striker. Sean Stapleton making his league debut for the boys made it three before the end when he got free on the left and was picked out brilliantly by Harrington, he took one touch and hit a right footed shot that was deflected beyond the keeper to ensure all three points for the boys. Great performances also from Paddy Kelleher and Brendan Powter but the man of the match was goalkeeper Liam McCarthy who pulled off some incredible saves to keep the clean sheet and ensure the winning start to the league is maintained by the boys.
