Douglas Hall 1 – 2 Corinthians Boys
In a high quality contest Corinthians came out on top in this hotly contested local derby. Douglas Hall started the brighter but in a 1st half of few chances and defences on top, Cors took the lead in the 20th minute with a well worked goal. A great through ball by Alex Healy Byrne was finished brilliantly by Ben Weldon.
Cors held out till a minute before HT when Douglas Hall were awarded a penalty which was well dispatched by Harry Flanagan. 1-1 at HT and all to play for.
Cors were the better side in the 2nd half and spurred on by the strong defending of Shane Tobin and the introduction of Adrian Thiabout they had the better chances to win the game. However they had to wait until 5 minutes from the end for the winner, a well struck free kick by Tom Kelly, who also made a good impact when introduced.
A brilliant team performance overall by the whole squad and the momentum of a strong start to the season continues.
