Corr Star Man In Strong Performance

Cookstown u14 3-1 Ballinmallard

Cookstown entertained Ballinamallard on Saturday at Fairhill hoping to extend their unbeaten start to the season. They started off superbly when Shea O’Hare’s perfectly timed run broke the offside trap and he crossed it for Liam Corr who put it in for the opener after a minute. They served to give them the adrenaline to push for another but it was the visitors who, against the run of play, equalised with their first attempt as the through ball was finished superbly giving Ben Purvis no chance. However the home team went back on to the front foot and a well worked corner was whipped to the back post where Corr was there to head in his second goal after a well timed run. While the visitors ventured forwards on occasions, it was the home team who were forcing the issue and their lead was extended five minutes from the break when Sean O’Hare was found from another corner and his sweet left foot strike nestled into the far corner. The second half was a different affair with Cookstown under more pressure although they dealt with it well on most occasions. Purvis made a great outstretched save while the defence stood firm in the face of pressure. Fresh legs were added by the coaches with the midfielders on the day, O’Donnell, Donaghy, McElhatton and Kane working hard to close the space. Donnelly, O’Hare, Donnell, Leek, Devlin and Ferguson had plenty to do in defence and coped well with the long ball from Ballinamallard. The score remained 3-1 as Cookstown added another win to their season. Man of the match was Liam Corr. Well done Liam.

Squad: Purvis, O’Hare, Donnelly, Donnell, Devlin, Leek, O’Donnell, McElhatton, Kane, Donaghy, O’Hare, Ferguson and Corr.
