Late goal gives Carrigaline victory in Under 14 Top of the Table clash
Corinthian Boys 0 Carrigaline Utd. 1
This key clash in the title race between fierce rivals Corinthians and Carrigaline in Casltetreasure had no shortage of dramatic momentst. Corinthians' start reflected their much superior league position and they should have taken the lead on 10 minutes with only the crossbar denying Jaze Kabia a goal from an excellent free kick. Every 50/50 ball was contested with determination and desire by both teams resulting in a handful of bookings before half time. Both defences including Corinthians' central defensive partnership of Conor Russell and Tony Brophy stood strong and dealt with all danger well, keeping the game scoreless. But soon the game took a turn for the worse for Corinthians . A Corinthians retaliation after a scuffle which resulted in the referee's harsh decision to send the Corinthians player off with a second yellow. An entertaining game of football until then was lost as tempers boiled over and a sour taste replaced the honest passion. But the game continued, as did excellent performances from Pádraig Nash and Mark Cronin in midfield, with long end to end football. But it was Carrigaline who, in the last minute, dramatically snatched the winner from a corner. Corinthians' lead at the top of the table has now been cut, making out for an interesting finish to the seaso
Corinthian Boys A 0 St Marys 2
Corinthians put in a brave performance against a big strong St Marys side but failed to put any points on the board.
In what has been a strange season with no competitive game in over 3 months the boy’s lack of sharpness showed and Marys scored two late goals taking all the points.
Odhran Murphy put in great performance in goal making an absolutely fantastic save on the 50th minute mark
Andrew Geaney O Brien playing centre back and Mark Fitzgibbon centre midfield also played very well
