Wilton 0 Corinthian Boys 4
The U13 premier team won away against Wilton United on a wet and heavy pitch. The rain started to fall as the game started which added to the difficult playing surface, Corinthians were always in control against a packed Wilton defence. However, they rarely threatened, Mark Hill had a very lively first half on the right side of midfield covering a lot of ground and linking up well with his colleagues.
After 15 minutes a corner from Adam idah was volleyed home by Scott Philpott, 5 minutes later another corner this time by Scott Philpott was turned into their own goal by a Wilton defender. The first half continued with Corinthians on top but without adding to the scoreline.
The second half was very flat from both teams, with Corinthians happy to defend their 2 goal lead. The game changed, however, 10 minutes in when a more direct approach from Corinthians resulted in a fine cross from the right which Fionn Molloy fed to Ricardo Dinanga, who finished it off from close range.
This was followed up by strong run from Adam idah who set Ricardo free, he then returned the favour by setting up Fionn Molloy for the 4th and final goal.

Avondale Utd. 0 Corinthian Boys A 5
The lads played some attractive football in the first half but the chances that were created were well saved by the Avondale keeper. Corinthians broke the deadlock just before half time when David Cotter set up Gabor Farkas who scored with a well struck shot from 10 yards. The lads continued to dominate in the second half and ran out easy winners with 2 goals each from David Cotter and Ben Lucey.
Douglas Hall 4 Corinthian Boys A 1
Corinthians started the game well and played good football throughout but failure to defend effectively cost us the game. A long free kick in the 17th minute gave Douglas Hall the advanage and they added a second soon after from a corner kick .Just after half time Hall went 3 up and despite Cors continuing to play good football it was the Hall clinical finishing which saw them victorious. After 4 nil down it was Daniel Kelleher's persistence in chasing a lost ball which gave Cors the consolation they deserved.Best for Cors were Kevin Mc Cabe, Daniel Kelleher and Daniel Tyner.
