U15 Div 2 – Corkbeg 3 Riverstown 2
Corkbeg got their U15 Division 2 league up and running with a hard fought 3-2 victory. Corkbeg started well with Josh McCarthy heading against the post early on from one of Jack Mulcahy’s impressive deliveries.
Goals followed from Josh McCarthy , Cian Moore and Cillian Burke to give Corkbeg a deserved 3-0 lead early in the second half.
However two late breaks from Riverstown led to two penalties which were expertly converted for the visitors.
A good start to the season with lovely football played by both sides.
U13 Div2 – Corkbeg 6 Corinthians A 0
The lads kicked off their league campaign on Sunday morning in perfect weather for a game of ball.
It was their first competitive game playing 11 aside, but the lads were confident. Captain, Donncha Walsh, gave the team instructions and they were ready.
The lads settled into the game and started to play some lovely football. Harry Jaworski took his first goal superbly from play, tearing down the right wing and curling the ball beyond the keeper.
Our midfield partnership of Donncha and Dara O’Brien worked beautifully holding and setting up play. Just before half time Liam Cashman set up Jack Kelleher who struck a superb volley to make it 2-0.
The second half saw David Murphy dance through multiple tackles to hammer the ball from distance into the back of the net. 3-0.
We weren’t finished as Trystan Pomphrett and Max O’Reilly were causing more problems for the Corinthian defence. Trystan played a perfect pass to Max, bang! 4-0.
Then Trystan set up Jack, 5-0. And to finish up the game, Max set up his captain Donncha and Donncha converted, 6-0.
U15Div5 – Leeside 1 Corkbeg 1
Corkbeg u15 Div 5 team started their league campaign on Sunday morning, with a 1-1 draw away to Leeside.
A superb top corner save midway through the second half from Kaylan Cunningham was undoubtedly the highlight of the game.
Having trailed 1-0 at the break, Corkbeg improved in the second half and a well taken Oscar Murphy goal was no more than the lads deserved.
Super performances from Eoghan Walsh, Jamie Walsh, Will O’Mahony and David Kelly.
