Mallow 2 Corinthian Boys 1
A poor performance from Corinthians left them disappointed as Mallow came away with all 3 points in this league clash at St. Gobnait's Park. Corinthians began the game well and took a deserved lead on 15 minutes when a good pass from Conor Fagan found Pádraig Nash who finished cooly past the keeper. But 5 minutes later Corinthians let their lead slip when a Mallow striker was allowed enough room inside the box to neatly turn and finish in the far left corner. The second half began a tight affair with the tie evenly balanced. But the advantage was soon with Mallow when a mistake from the Corinthians goalkeeper handed the home side a cheap lead. Mallow then set out to protect this lead, frustrating Corinthians attempts to rescue a result. These frustrations also prevented Corinthians' normally flowing play from flourishing, with the game ending in a Mallow win. Good performances from Patrick Buckley, Rory Doyle and Mark Cronin kept Corinthians right in the game to the end.
