Crana College 0-3 CCS
CCS started well with Kieran Farren and Fionn McClure causing major headaches for Crana College on the wings. CCS were their own worst enemy at times, playing balls into a packed midfield when they had men in space. CCS also had Daniel Houghton to thank for keeping it 0-0 at half-time, making three great one-on-one saves from Crana counter-attacks.
CCS picked up the pace in the second half and continued to make chances in and around the box, with Darragh Deery and Dayton Cooke causing all sorts of problems for the central defenders. CCS took the lead from a Kieran Farren penalty following a hand-ball by the Crana centre-half from an Evan Tweed volley. CCS were unlucky not to double their lead when a 30-yard shot hit the crossbar; the keeper was well beaten. Dayton Cooke had two good chances to double the lead but a last ditch save from both the keeper and the post stopped Cooke. Dayton Cooke did eventually get on the score sheet, twice - two lovely finishes low past the keeper - one of which came from some great work by Mark Doherty down the right flank. Cade Cooke was unlucky not to have a penalty when he beat four men, only to be upended in the area. Daniel McCallion ensured it was a clean sheet for the CCS keepers with a low full stretch save.
