Corinthian Boys B run out winners of the U11 Eddie Healy Cup
Superb game played out by Corinthians and Avondale - all the way to a penalty shoot out

In a magnificent advert for schoolboys football Corinthians and Avondale put on a superb exhibition of football. Non stop entertainment, 6 cracking goals and an exciting penalty shootout.

Avondale opened the scoring in the first half with a goal of the season contender from Jack Mahony. Corinthians came back to make it 1-1 at the break from a lovely finish by Cian O'Flaherty. There was no further goals in the second half so on to extra time.

Corinthians drew first blood through Ben Murphy But back came Avondale with an equaliser from Charlie McCarthy. Charlie put Avondale ahead 3-2 a minute from the end with a superb strike. Avondale looked all over winners at this stage but back came Corinthians to force penalties with a last gasp header from Killian Healy.

An amazing end to a thrilling game and both teams should be proud of the entertainment they put on for the large and vociferous crowd.

Some great penalties from both sides together with some outstanding goalkeeping saw Corinthians edge the penalty shootout.

This was an outstanding game to welcome schoolboys football back to the Cross after the long enforced break for the kids.
