Cluster League Match vs Corpus Christi 2017

The New cluster league season got underway last Friday and last years champions St Joseph's looked to defend the title against runners up Corpus Christi. This game was the deciding game last year and had a real cup final feel to the game. St Joseph's travelled to Corpus Christi in good spirits having held trials for the boys football team and frequent training sessions. The game started off very tight with both sides having numerous chances to take the lead. However it was St Joseph's who created the best chances of the game despite numerous shots towards the Corpus Christi goal it remained 0-0 at half time. Second half started in similar fashion with both teams playing some nice football, it was a real display of skill and teamwork as both teams enjoyed the space offered on the big grass pitch. Elijah nearly put St Joseph's into the lead but his right footed shot found the side netting, despite lots of effort to score the game looked destined for a 0-0 scoreline. With just seconds to go Corpus Christi gained a corner and sent forward their solid centre back who had been defending brilliantly all game, he rose above everyone else in the box to head home from the corner sending Corpus Christi parents and players into raptures. The goal came so late in the game St Joseph's did not have time to respond and the 3 vital points went to Corpus.
