Corkbeg moved to within three points of the league title, with an impressive 4-1 win against Waterloo in Whitechurch on Saturday afternoon. After this result, a win at home to Southcoast Athletic next Friday night in Whitegate, will see Corkbeg crowned Premier ‘A’ champions.
The game was pretty even for the opening 20 minutes and both Shane Bennett and Jordan Tynan had half chances for Corkbeg. Cein O Driscoll also struck a post directly from a corner kick. But on 31 minutes, a deep corner kick was headed home by Danny Creedon and the Beg had the lead.
Two minutes later and a second goal arrived. Jordan Ryan was upended about 25 yards from goal and Jack Farmer struck a sweet free kick to the bottom corner to double Corkbegs lead.
And it was 3-0 before half time, when after a great Corkbeg move, Aaron Berrys deep cross was headed home by Cein O Driscoll at the back post to put clear daylight between the sides.
It was even enough once again in the early stages of the second half. Jordan Ryan had a shot from a narrow angle saved and Shane Bennett also shot narrowly over from a Cein O Driscoll pass.
But once again, it was Corkbeg who extened the lead on 77 minutes, when after another good Corkbeg move, Alan Hogan had his shot well saved by the Waterloo goalkeeper, but Dylan O Neill was quickest to react to the rebound and shot home.
Waterloo pulled a goal back from a corner with five minutes remaining, but Corkbeg ran out comfortable winners. A win at home to Southcoast Athletic next Friday night in Whitegate, will see The Beg crowned champions.
