U14 Local Cup – Corkbeg 3 Leeside 3
(Corkbeg win on penalties AET)
Leeside visited Corkbeg on Sunday morning to play the last 16 in the local cup.
These 2 teams have history as they’ve bounced off each other over the years, with Leeside having the last few victories.
We started off lively and it was very much an even game with both teams try to unlock either defence.
Then, a really well taken free by Max Daly from inside our half found the glancing head of Aesa Murphy and looped over the keeper, 1-0.
More pressure from the Beg, Josh McCarthy found himself 30 yards and scored a cracker into the top corner, 2-0. Leeside are a quality Premier team and showed this as they pulled 1 back, 2-1.
As the second half started, a perfect corner from Jack Mul found Josh McCarthy on the far post , 3-1.
Leeside piled on the pressure and pulled 2 goals back, 3-3 at full time.
Lads were tired, but determined and played the two halves of extra time and we were still 3-3, penalties next.
Sam Mc went in goal first and pulled off a cracking save, which was ultimately the difference between the two teams.
Jack Mul, Tristin, Adam, Josh and Max all converted, cool heads on all of them.
Corkbeg win the game!
So, these young men have once again shown why we’re all so proud of them and are now in the last 8 in Cork!
