Corrinshego 0-18 Dromintee II 0-02

Corrinshego hosted Dromintee II’s on a wet Sunday afternoon. Played in poor weather conditions it was Corrinshego who came out on top and opened the scoring from the boot of Daniel Hughes. This looked as it was to be Daniel Hughes day as he soon added another score to Corrinshego’s tally. Dromintee fought back after converting two close range points. Corrinshego built well from defence with great performances from David Lenaghan and Mark McAteer. Shane McArdle showed well throughout the game winning the majority of breaking ball and going on great solo runs. Cathal Trainor added a point after a superb run from half back. On the break Corrinshego led the game by 5 points.

On the restart it was again the home side who came out on top as Declan McGreevy won the throw up to go on a solo run to add the first point of the half. The combination of Daniel Hughes and Shane McArdle caused difficulty for the Dromintee defence as they worked well together for a number of scores. Ryan O’Rielly scored a number of free kicks to put Dromintee out of sight. Dromintee were soon after awarded a penalty which they failed to convert. Jamie Murphy and Phelim Finnegan were introduced to the game and each got themselves on the score sheet. Daniel Hughes put in a man of the match performance with a tally of 0-09 on the day. Corrinshego would like to wish Ryan McWilliams a speedy recovery who recently underwent surgery.

Killeavy II 1-06 Corrinshego 1-09

On Wednesday evening Corrinshego Seniors recorded their third league win out of a possible four. The side travelled the short journey to Killeavy where they knew would have difficulty in leaving with a further two points under their belt. Killeavy started the game on top as Corrinshego had difficulty in settling into the game. The sides traded two points each, Corrinshego’s both coming from the boot of Daniel Hughes. Killeavy soon hit the net after a defensive error caused a Killeavy short free kick to find an unmarked player who had no difficulty in finding the net. Soon after Killeavy could have hit the net again was it not for a fantastic save by Barry Matthews who touched the ball on to the post. Corrinshego added a further point before the break but went in trailing by two points.

After a few stern words by the management team at half time Corrinshego came out in the second half and dominated the opening 20 minutes. Points from Ryan O’Rielly and Ryan McWilliams soon put the travelling side in the lead for the first time of the game. David Lenaghan and Liam Quinn were solid in defence and caused difficulty for the attacking side. Corrinshego were under pressure for the final 5 minutes of the game but their defence kept them in the lead as they ran out eventual winners.

Corrinshego 2-9 Cavanakil Emmetts 1-3

Corrinshego minors had their first game of the league at home to Cavanakil Emmett’s on Monday night in terrible weather conditions. It was the home side who started the strongest with three great scores from the boot of Sean Thompsons. The away side soon got into the game and used the wind to their advantage kicking high balls into their towering forward line which resulted in them finding the back of the net. It was the away side who took control of the rest of the first half and went in at half time leading by a point.
Half time score Corrinshego 0-5 Cavanakil Emmetts 1-3

With a few chosen words from the management at half time the boys came out in the second half flying and with the wind at their backs. They soon started to get the scores on the board. It wasn’t long before Conor Loye found the net with a great run through the Cavanakil defence, soon after Deaglan Jennings also hit the back of their net with another great run. Credit to the away side they never give up but with Donal Toal and Mark McAteer outstanding in the fullback line along with Thomas Fagan and Ryan Courtney in the half back line they kept the away side scoreless in the second half.
