National Cup

Corinthian Boys 1  Carrigaline Utd.  0

he match began at a high pace with two totally committed sides, as one would expect every day, let alone a National Cup quarter final. The home side pushed forward from the start. Nerves were obvious, hardly surprising for twelve year olds playing for high stakes. The home side were inclined to shoot from long range and difficult angles as distinct from their norm of working the ball in closer to goal before attempting efforts on target. Possession was not converting to goals. Carrigaline showed their undoubted ability by working the ball into the Corinthians box half way through the first half, but net minder O'Leary was his usual assured 'self. The away team threatened again by winning a free in a dangerous position, which was thwarted by a resolute defence.
 
Corinthians regained the upper hand as quarter three progressed. Several excellent George Coomber corners caused mayhem, but again without yielding a score.
 
The second half began similarly to how the first had ended in terms of Corinthians pushing forward.  As the clock neared the hour mark, extra time looked likely. With two minutes remaining, Robert Geaney O'Brien broke away from the two markers who had tracked his every move for the previous 58 minutes. Jack Leonard finished from short range. This was well deserved for Leonard who had narrowly failed minutes earlier following a skillful solo run. Extra time saw a nervous finish with Carrigaline coming extremely close to equalising in the  third minute of additional time.
 
No doubt the visitors will pick themselves up. They are a fine side who may well have a say in the League outcome when Corinthians visit Carrigaline. For now, the home side must abandon all thoughts of Cabinteely in the semis on 18th April in Dublin and focus on local league and cup, where any slip up will result in those trophies not being retained. Congratulations to our young heroes and good look to them as they strive to entertain us all in the weeks and hopefully months ahead.
 
 

Division 2

St Marys A  3   Corinthian Boys A   3

The U13As emerged from Kilcully with a hard-earned point in a six-goal thriller  against St. Marys on Saturday morning. The home team took the lead when the ball was poked in at the back post after a well-taken corner. We equalised four minutes later when a Luke Osborne corner was swept home by Ben Quilligan. We slowly got on top and went ahead after 21 minutes when Rhys Callanan ran onto a great through-ball from Sean O’Cathain and confidently lobbed the ball over the head of the keeper and into the net.

We held the lead until the 10th minute of the second half when St. Marys equalised from yet another corner. Worse was to follow when they took the lead within 60 seconds. It seemed that it was not to be our day but a great run by Roger Timon ended in a second goal from Rhys Callanan with just four minutes remaining. We could have snatched it when Sean O’Cathain forced a save after a Dylan Buckley cross but it was not to be.

Team: Andrew O’Brien, Diarmuid Desmond, Mark Harrington, Alex Lane (Kevin Walsh – 32 mins), Ben Quilligan, Ian Turnbull (Dylan Buckley – 30 mins), Sean O’Cathain, Luke Osborne (James Wilson-O’Callaghan – 45 mins), Luke Noonan (Andrew Shelly – 30 mins), Roger Timon, Rhys Callanan

Under 14

Premier

Corinthians Boys 7 – Buttevant 0

The Under 14 Premier team completely dominated this game against Buttevant. Dominating possession from the start, and controlling the game. They played some lovely football and had Buttevant pinned in their own half for the entire first half.

The scoring was opened in the 6th minute when a corner from the right was headed in by David Murphy, 5 minutes later another corner from the right was struck home by the right boot of David Murphy, now on a run for the perfect hat trick.The pressure was still intense and Ricardo Dinanga provided the 3rd goal in the 24th minute.

The start of the 2nd half did not change anything, Corinthians continued to pile forward and in the 40th minute David Murphy popped up in the box to score with, yes, his left foot to complete the perfect hat trick.

Not to be outdone Killian McGowan struck a beautiful left footed shot from 22 yards which gave the Keeper no chance. Two more goals followed, the first another terrific strike from Scott Philpott and the final goal was a header by Ricardo.

Team: R Lombard, D.Murphy, J.McFall, S.Philpott, L.Barron, D.Fox, S.Dunlea, C.Murphy, R.Dinanga, F.Molloy, A.Idah Subs: O’O’Keeffe, M.Hill, L.Edwards, K.McGowan, J.Holden. Tadgh O‘Sullivan

National Cup

U15 National Cup Quarter Final


Belvedere 2-1 Corinthians


Corinthians Boys were narrowly beaten by a strong Belvedere side in the national cup quarter final on Saturday afternoon in a game of high quality football. Playing on a difficult astro turf pitch, Corinthians rose to the challenge and began the frantic first 10 minutes marginally the better side. Belvedere soon grew into the game however, and began to control the possession. They took the lead midway through the first half after a high ball wasn't dealt with in the box, allowing and incoming belvo player to head the ball home. This didn't phase Corinthians though, as they created two great chances minutes later but just couldn't seem to hit the target. Corinthians were soon left to rue missed chances after Belvedere doubled their lead ten minutes before half time with a bullet header from a free kick. But on the stroke of half time, Corinthians finally got the goal they deserved. A great ball into the box by Conor Bowdren found Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh who took control of the ball and finished superbly into the top corner. Corinthians began the second half much better and controlled the opening period until Belvedere again found their passing game on the flat astro surface. Only excellent, organised defending from Corinthians prevented great pieces of Belvedere play from being converted into goals. However as the game grew on so did Corinthians, as they began to get the ball on the ground and cause Belvedere a bit of trouble in search of an equaliser. But any hopes of an equaliser were soon dented after Corinthians went down to ten men, making a comeback look a little less likely. In the end, Belvedere clinched a hard fought 2-1 win but the Corinthians players can be proud of the excellent spirit showed by all throughout the game. 

 

Division 3

Midleton A 0-1 Corinthian Boys A

A fine strike from Shane Twomey was all that seperated these two teams in a hard fought game were for the most part both defences were on top.

The first half was mostly played in midfield with Corinthians creating a number of chances thru Adam Casey and James Adenerian

Midletons main threat was there right winger but an outstanding performance by Eammon Cogan at right back and captain Andrew Geany O Brien insured the Cors defence stayed water tight.

AS the game progressed the boys looked more composed with Dylan Fenton and Harvey Cummins starting to dictate the midfield.

Adam Casey always looked a hand full for Midleton and while he didnt get on the score sheet he did get the assist , playing a lovley one two with Shane who threaded the ball thru the midleton defender legs and beat the keeper with an unstopable strike from just inside the box.

A deserved victory if not a pretty one.

The 3 points in some way makes up for a dissapointing lose to Mayfield and keeps the boys in the top 3. A special thanks to Donal Maher who put in a splendid performance in the unfamiliar position of goalkeeper.

Team Donal Maher, Eammon Cogan, Mark Fitzgibbon,Andrew G o Brien, Kevin Bohane, Shane Twomey, Dylan Fenton,Harvey Cummins, Sam O Sullivan,Adam Casey, James Adenirian, Cillian Dunlea, Adam Callanan, Luke Wade
