Schoolboys Round Up w/e 25th September

U18Div1A – Lakewood Athletic ‘A’ 2 Corkbeg 5
The lads played away from home last Sunday evening under floodlights on the All Weather pitch in Lakewood.
Very quickly, we were 1-0 up thanks to the pace and skill of Sean O’Callaghan, who tormented Lakewood all evening.
A second goal followed from Aaron Walsh, midway through the first half, 2-0.
Lakewood are a good team, but unfortunately for them, they didn’t take their chances – particularly when they won a penalty and dragged it wide.
Sean O Callaghan made them pay for that miss and got a third Corkbeg goal. 3-0 at half time.
The lads were playing nice football and it was great to see them confident playing the ball out from the back.
The second half saw Lakewood come back into the game and we found ourselves with a slender lead at 3-2.
More changes and we pushed on. Sean O’Callaghan got 2 more goals before the final whistle to complete a 4 goal haul for himself.
5-2 was the full time score.
Great result, great team performance

U18Div1A – Kilworth 0 Corkbeg 4
Corkbeg U18’s travelled to Kilworth for their 3rd league game of the season on Sunday afternoon.
The Beg started slowly against a fast paced and strong Kilworth side who put Corkbegs back line under a bit of pressure in the opening 10mins. The Beg settled down and took control of the game from there on, which paid off in the 20 minute, when Sean O Callaghan slot home from a great through ball. 0-1 to Corkbeg.
Both teams had a few chances up to half time with the away side having most of the possession.
2nd half and Corkbeg came out playing fantastic football , making runs and finding space. 3 minutes in and Sean was taken down inside the Kilworth box. Penalty . Up stepped captain Cian Hegarty and slotted the ball home . 0-2 Corkbeg
Corkbeg continued to pile on the pressure and the pressure again paid off in the 65 minute, when Cian H scored the goal of the game from 40yards out and drilled it past the keeper into the top left corner. 0-3 the Beg .
Corkbeg then came close with a Jack Fitzgerald free kick from just outside the box.
The home side put Corkbeg under pressure again ,but outstanding performances from the entire back line held them goalless.
Then in the 90 minute a great break through ball to Cian H, put him 1v1 with the keeper, which Cian slotted home for his hat trick.
Special mention for Conor Byrne & Aaron Walsh who were outstanding in defence and Nicky Bertocchi, who didn’t give Kilworth a second on the ball.
Outstanding team performance against a very strong Kilworth side .

U15Div2 – Mogeely 2 Corkbeg 3
Corkbeg made it two wins from two to in a dramatic tussle at Railway Park, Mogeely on Saturday .
Corkbeg took the lead after 10 minutes with Jack Mulcahy scoring from the penalty spot after some early pressure from the visitors led to the penalty decision.
For the remainder of the half, the script changed, with the home side dominating possession and chances. After 25 minutes this pressure brought an equaliser and a scramble in the box led to Mogeely levelling up the game.
The second half brought more of the same early-on, with the home side enjoying the lion’s share of the possession. After 10 minutes of the second half the home side were awarded a free from just outside the box. The resulting freekick somehow found its way to the net to give the home side the lead.
Man of the match, Josh McCarthy, tore into the game and his smashing drive from 20 yards nestled into the net to level things up again at 2-2.
Jack Dorney then started whipping in balls from the left wing and a ball broke to the right wing and the resulting shot went past the keeper to give Corkbeg the victory on a 3-2 scoreline.
Sam McAllister, Ewan Forbes (C), Cormac Crowley, James Falvey, Aesa Murphy, Cillian Burke, Jack Mulcahy, Jackson Kearns, Adam Lewis, Josh McCarthy, Jack Dorney.

U15Div5 – Corkbeg 4 Carrigaline B 0
Corkbeg U15 Div 5 team recorded an impressive 4-0 victory at home to Carrigaline in Whitegate on Sunday morning.
After a slow start to the game, Corkbeg took the lead with 5 minutes to go before half time, with a well taken Will O Mahony goal. It lifted the home side, and 10 mins into the second half, the ever dangerous David Kelly popped up at the back post to make it 2-0.
Jack Hughes added a third after some persistent work, before a David Kelly chip to the back post may or may not have been touched by Matt Warne for the fourth and final goal. It’s most certainly one for VAR.
A great performance from the lads with Oscar Murphy, Lukas Smith, AJ O Driscoll and captain Eoghan Walsh all playing superbly.

U13Div7 – Corkbeg 2 Ballinhassig 3
Brilliant game of football in Whitegate on Sunday morning, as Corkbeg U13’A’ team were pipped by Ballinhassig.
Daragh Crowley and Rian O Brien grabbed the Corkbeg goals, in a game which the lads didn’t deserve to lose.

U13 Div2 Macroom 0 Corkbeg 3
An early start on Sunday morning, had the lads on the road for a 10am kickoff in Macroom. Our 5th game so far and we just had enough to make a squad.
A very even affair in the first half, until Jack Kelleher whipped a ball in which a Macroom defender headed into the back of the net. 1-0 at halftime.
We came out a more settled team in the second half and were kept in the game by some brilliant goal keeping by Finbar, not only saving but beating a striker to the ball outside his box.
Liam Cashman played a perfect through ball to David Murphy who buried it, 2-0.
Corkbeg were confident now and we started to really play, with Jack Kelleher grabbing his second, 3-0.
Special mention to Cormac Cashman who not only defended brilliantly but his attacking game is excellent too, unlucky not to score.
Man of the match was Finbar Alcock.
“If anyone can, Finbar can”!
