Corinthians defeat Rushen as weekend washed out

Football results for Saturday, 9 November

Corinthians survived a late Rushen fightback to earn a fourth win in succession in the Canada Life Premier League.

Luke Murray gave The Whites a first half lead with a header, before Sean Doyle doubled their advantage early in the second period.

The Spaniards halved the deficit through Ste Riding before Josh Ridings restored Corinthians' two-goal lead.

Despite a Jamie Johnston strike late on, Rushen slipped to their second defeat in three.

All other top flight matches fell foul of the weather, with just six other matches taking place on Saturday afternoon.

Malew beat Governors 6-5 in a thrilling match at Bemahague in JCK Division Two, while there were heavy wins for DHSOB and Peel in Combination One.

In Combination Two, Douglas & District were 4-1 winners over Gymns, and RYCOB scored five second half goals in a crushing 6-0 victory at home to Foxdale.
