Youths Turn In Five Star performances
Corinthian Boys A 6 Avondale Utd. 0
The lads got off to a great start and scored after 2 minutes when Brian Lagrue raced down the right wing and pulled the ball back for Ben Lucey who made no mistake from 10 yards. Ben Lucey scored again ten minutes later and Brian Lagrue got Cors 3rd goal with a well struck shot after another fine run down the right.
Corinthians continued to play some nice attacking football in the second half and Andrew Greany finished off another Corinthians attack with a shot from a tight angle. Man of the match, Brian Lagrue scored 2 more goals to complete his hat-trick.
Corinthian Boys A 2 Buttevant 5
Lack of self belief and too much respect for the opposition contributed to this defeat.Cors defended well for the first half hour against
a strong wind and an onslaught by Buttevant.However failing to clear the ball from defence enabled Buttevant to take the lead in the 31st min and they added a second before half time.Buttevant extended their lead by another two goals in the second half but Corinthians kept battling and a Paul Mc Glone header gave them some hope.Soon after a Rory Coughlan free kick on the left found its way into the far corner of the Buttevant net to make the game more competitive.Cors should have composed themselves then as there was still some time left but it was Buttevant who rallied by scoring again.Best for Cors were Paul Mc Glone, David Lyne and Niall Moore.
FAI Youths Cup
College Corinthians 5 Malahide Utd. 1
This was a tremendous performance by our Under 18 Premier side as they outplayed a good Malahide side with some sparkling football and some outstanding goals.
Despite the concession of an early goal when playing against a very strong wind, Corinthians recovered well and with Shane Daly Butz and Jamie Philpott on top in midfield they dominated the next 20 minutes without any reward. However just when it looked as if Malahide could add to their lead (they were particularly dangerous from set pieces) Corinthians broke quickly from defence and following a great run Shane Daly Butz fired home from the edge of the area to level the contest.
There was no looking back for Corinthians after this as they turned for the second half with the elements at their back and within two minutes they were in front when Dylan Walsh scored from close range. Further goals followed from Stephen Christopher; an absolute rocket, Jamie Philpott and Ryan Mc Carthy.
Well done to all concerned and particularly the Management duo of Richie Kenny and Tony Noonan.
College Corinthians 5 Greenwood 11
Our Division One squad matched the achievement of their club colleagues when they also recorded a 5-1 victory. Goals from Daniel James, Cian Devine(2), Daniel Kingston (2) and outstanding team performance in very difficult conditions gaved the way for this fine victory.
Midleton 0 College Corinthians 3
Played on an extremely difficult surface following heavy rain, Corinthians were gkad to be back in action following a lenghty lay off and started well going in front through Aine Kearney; Midleton recovered well fron this set back and were well in the game until Michelle O' Regan doubled Corinthians advantage on 20 minutes and just before half time Alecia O' Donovan added a third. To their credit Midleton came out with all guns blazing in the second half hitting the woodwork twice but with Lisa Lynch and Stephanie O' Sullivan outstanding in defence Corinthians held on for a deserved victory.
