Corach Ramblers

This week "Split the Pot" took place in Tir na nOg, Wellingtonbridge. This week's winner was Christine Casey, Barrystown! She wins €811. Well done Christine.

Our A team advanced to the Neill O Sullivan cup semi-final after an extra time victory over a very solid Crossabeg team. The first half was even enough with chances scarce at both ends. But Crossabeg drew first blood after being awarded a penalty which they scored after Adam Diskin got a hand to it.

Corach upped their game and were awarded a penalty midway through the second half which John Staples dispatched with perfection. Corach kept the pressure on for extra time and got the winner in the first period with a great strike from John Staples. They defended well for the remainder of the game and were happy to hear the final whistle. A great crowd turned out to watch the game which was appreciated by all concerned.

The B-team were at home to cloughbawn b today and had a comfortable 4-0 win which leaves us needing just 2 points from our remaining 3 games to win the league. We started off slow enough today but after 15 minutes we took the lead when Conor Neville ran onto a great through ball and lobbed the keeper, we went 2 up after 30 minutes when a Richie Walsh cross was knocked in at the back post by Conor Neville, 10 minutes later it became 3 when a great run by Mj Doran saw him square the ball for Mark Sinnott to tap home, 10 minutes into the second half it became 4 when Conor Neville beat the offside trap and fired home at the near post to complete his hat trick, we took our foot off the gas then and comfortably saw out the rest of the game.

Congratulations to the Corach Ramblers Ladies team who had a tough physical 5-2 win over Camolin today. As you are all probably aware at this stage, this means the women have won the Division 2A League! Congratulations to all the girls and Davey Mac for all their hard work over the last few years.

Our U14 team went down 2 nil away to Wexford Albion today after a great battle with the top of the table team. Darren Cadogan started in goal for the first time and had a great game between the posts. Albion went ahead in the first few minutes and was awarded a penalty just before half time. Corach battled hard in the second half and should have scored but Albion held out for a deserved victory.

Corach U10 ten boys had a fantastic game against new Ross .boys played a very tough game. conor Miller made an outstanding save in the last five mins. Well done boys!

U16 girls lost 5-1 to All Blacks!
