Gus Walsh Cup Final

 

College Corinthians  2  Rockmount  1

 

It is always great to win a cup final in Turners Cross and this was certainly the case last Friday night as our under 17’s turned in a superb team performance to get the better of Rockmount in a very entertaining final. Football certainly was the winner on the night as both sides moved the ball around sweetly on the slick Turners Cross pitch.

Corinthians started brightly controlling the early possession and deservedly went ahead on 15 minutes when following a short corner routine Ross Welch fired a superb shot across the Rockmount keeper into the far corner of the goal. Boosted by this fine start Corinthians pushed on and it came as no surprise when Colin O’ Brien added a second following a fine turn and strike inside the penalty area.

Two goals to the good at half time Corinthians looked in good shape but Rockmount to their credit came more into the game in the second half and following a period of pressure reduced the arrears with 15 minutes to go. This made for an exciting finish as Rockmount pushed on in search of an equalizer  and Corinthians launched several counter attacks which should have led to a clinching third goal but didn’t. In the end Corinthians were relieved to hear the final whistle.

Congratulations to the management team of Cormac Cotter, Declan Cooke and Donal O’ Leary and to the entire squad on a great team effort; anytime a team wins silverware particularly in a fine theatre like Turners Cross is a special and memorable time

  Corinthian Boys  4  Springfield Ramblers  1

It was a comprehensive victory this weekend for Corinthians, beating Springfield 4-1 in the league to extend their unbeaten run to 8 games. Goals came from Robert Walsh (2), Aidan Barry and Ramon Garbos.

The game started with Corinthians dominating possession and within the first 10 minutes the opposition 'keeper had to pull of a number of excellent saves. It wasn't long, though, before Aidan Barry opened the scoring. Rob Walsh put in a corner and after a defensive header, Aidan was the first to react and lashed a half volley in to the roof of the net from the penalty spot.

Only a few minutes later it was 2-0. Some good work on the right between Conor Sheehy and Adam Walsh creating space and once the pass came to Robert Walsh there was only going to be one outcome. Robert unleashed a fierce strike high over the keeper from around 25 yards. Not long after, Robert had his second of the game. This time Aidan Barry returning the favour of the assist, chasing a loose ball and pulling it back to Robert just inside the box, Rob showed excellent technique to side foot it in to the far top corner.

Corinthians had the game practically won at half time as they led 3-0. It took some time for the 4th to come but when it did it was no surprise. Luke O'Leary beating 3 players before seeing his shot parried by the 'keeper, and Ramon Garbos was the first to react to stop the defender clearing the danger and firing it in from close range.

Springfield pulled a goal back a few minutes before the end when l Gavin Ryan pulled off a great save, tipping a free kick on to the post, but the Springfield striker got to the loose ball first to tap it over the line.

 

The game finished 4-1 and it was a solid enough performance. Next week sees the table toppers travel to Division 1 leaders Midleton for the National Cup match, which will definitely be a stern test and a game to look forward too

 

Division 4

Macroom  2  Cor Boys A  7

It was a very windy and wet day in Macroom. Deri won the toss and opted to play with the wind. Corinthians started positively which was rewarded just before the ten-minute mark when Daniel O’ Regan drove one home from close range. 

Macroom quickly equalised from a soft free kick, however Corinthians kept the pressure up and Conor O’ Herlihy put them ahead again and Fionn Coleman then grabbed one just before half time. In the second half Macroom started strong, Lorcan Cagney stopped an one to one and Corinthians lifted it again which was rewarded when Conor netted his second goal of the game. Conor had an outstanding game and his midfield partnership with Fionn broke down Macroom play and turned it into attack. Emmanuel grabbed his second hat trick of the season in the second half.

Lakewood Ath.  0  Corinthian Boys  6

 

Lakewood opened brightly and had two threatening attacks within minutes. However, a  well taken goal by Daniel Squires after eight minutes, following a cross from Robert Geaney O'Brien, settled Corinthians into a rhythem that was retained throughout the remainder of the match. 

The passing movements on a day with such atrocious weather conditions of wind and rain were phenomenal from the visitors. This, coupled with brave tackling and a really high work rate, resulted in one of the best performances of the season so far, culminating in a 0 – 8 win.

RGO'B finished a low shot to the corner of the net in the 14th minute to double the lead. Daniel Meade added a third four minutes later. Destiny Okonkwo sored number four in the 21st minute following a George Coomber cross. A classy shot from distance by David Welch completed the first half scoring.

The second half followed a similar pattern. RGO'B crossed in the 36th minute to allow Okonkwo finish a typical striker's goal from close range. The latter completed his hat-trick in the 26th minute. Daniel Meade scored his second to complete the scoring a couple of minutes before the whistle signalled the end of a very strong Corinthians display.

A really challenging encounter lies a week ahead against another classy Corinthians outfit in the national cup that may see close friendships deferred for an hour.

Corinthians continued their one hundred percent record this season after picking up a hard earned three points away to a strong Midleton team in awful weather conditions. The game began as a tight affair, with both teams trying to find their footing and settle. Corinthians took an early lead fifteen minutes when the Midleton keeper could only palm Cathal Keane's free kick into the path of the oncoming Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh who tapped in to put Cors one up. Midleton were playing with a strong wind for the first half but the Corinthians defence dealt superbly with any threats that came their way and at half time the score was 1-0. Ten minutes into the second half Corinthians deservedly doubled their lead, after Beineon O’Brien Whitmarsh expertly turned in Rory Doyle’s corner. Corinthians now took control of the game and saw it out excellently, ensuring Midleton’s use of the ball was limited while still creating chances at the other end. An outstanding performance from everyone, especially Cathal Keane, Patrick Buckley, Beineon O'Brien Whitmarsh and Eoin Carey, resulted in yet another win for this Corinthians team.
