Corrinshego club notes – 16th April 2012
Thomas Davis Corrinshego 0-12 St Patricks Cullyhanna 0-07
Corrinshego got back to winning ways on Sunday with a well deserved win at home to Cullyhanna. Corrinshego started the game strong with an excellent score from Shane McArdle. It wasn’t long before McArdle was involved in the second consecutive score with a great run forward to provide Daniel Hughes with a fisted point. Cullyhanna took a while to settle into the game as Corrinshego dominated the majority of the first half and only allowed Cullyhanna to add scores to the board from free kicks. Daniel Hughes continued to cause trouble for the Cullyhanna defence as he continued to make great runs and add scores both from play and from free kicks. The home side were excellent and led by 3 points at the break.
On the restart it was Cullyhanna who started the better side as they brought the scores to 5 points each but a Daniel Hughes 45 lifted the Corrinshego spirits who soon found themselves with a 3 point lead which they never looked like losing. David Lenaghan marshalled the defence catching any dangerous ball which came his way. There were also excellent performances from Liam Quinn and Paul Heatley in defence along with a great combination of Ryan McWilliams and Ronan O’Rielly in midfield. On the day Corrinshego deserved the win and must put in the same effort away to Killeavy on Wednesday evening at 6.45.
Lisummon 2-10 Thomas Davis Corrinshego 0-07
Corrinshego suffered their first home defeat of the league away to Lisummon on Wednesday evening who proved too strong for the travelling side. Corrinshego took 20 minutes before they got their first score on the board from the boot of Karl Kimmins. Lisummon never looked in trouble as they continued to cause hassle for the Corrinshego defence. At the break Corrinshego trailed by 5 points.
On the restart Corrinshego started stronger as they scored two points in quick succession but Lisummon never looked under pressure as they soon added a goal through a controversial penalty. Corrinshego suffered a blow as Mark Bradshaw had to go off injured which caused further havoc for the Corrinshego defence. Lisummon ran out eventual winners and Corrinshego must now lift themselves on Sunday against St Patricks Cullyhanna.
Faoi 16 / Under 16
Micéal Ó Doirnin 3-09 Cor Fhuinseoige 9-09
Thomas Davis under 16’s started their league away to Micéal Ó Doirnin (Forkhill & Killeen) with a hard fought victory in which our ability to get goals at the right time proved to be the only difference between two evenly matched teams throughout the park. We hit the ground running and set the tempo from very early on with midfielders Conor Rice and Conor Loye putting some great ball to the full forward line where Ryan Courtney & Jonny Tumility were on top form hitting some points and a brace of goals from play and frees to put us firmly in the driving seat. The home side upped the ante hitting 2 points back to back to put them on the scoreboard, but further scores from Lee Courtney, Conor Loye & Conor Rice put us into a commanding lead. A few more scores were traded as halftime approached with the Corrinshego firmly in control 7-05 to 0-03.
On the restart, the home side started well creating some good moves to reduce the deficit with a point and a goal. Aaron Cinnamonds move to midfield was working well winning
plenty of break ball but the home side really rallied and for the next 10 minutes they hit a great spell reeling off 2-05 to bring them back into the contest. A brilliantly fielded ball from Conor Loye got us moving again resulting in a great move which finished in a point. We finished the game as we started with our full forward line of Conor Jennings chipping in with a point and brothers Adam & Matthew Loughran hitting 2-02 between them to ensure our league campaign got off to a winning start. Our back line of Ronan McMahon, Jordan Mackey, Keyonis Crozier & Brendan McCorry were solid all night and up front Dean Falloon, Decky Loye, Lee Courtney & Caolan Marron put in a great hours football to win the spoils.
