Cork Con FC J1 34 - 8 Sundays Well
Venue: Musgrave ParkCompetition: Munster 2nds Lge
Constitution secured a bonus-point win in their first match of the Munster Seconds League at Musgrave Park on Sunday. In windy conditions, they ran in three tries in the first half to lead 21-3 at the break, and followed with two more tries in the second period for a comfortable win.
Pat McSweeney opened the scoring with an early penalty for Sunday’s Well. Conor Desmond ran in the first try for Constitution in the 12th minute with a break from mid-field. Then Simon Hanbidge and Brian Vaughan added further tries in the 16th and 20th minutes to leave Con well in command. Peter O’Sullivan converted all three to set the half time score.
Sunday’s Well came more into the game in the second half, but not before Eoin O’Donnell finished a fine move with the fourth try in the 48th minute and Hanbidge scored his second try on the hour mark. The Well got their reward when Darren Blower touched down from a 5 metre scrum.
It was a valuable opening game for both sides who now look forward to regular weekly competition. Next Sunday Constitution will play Dolphin at Temple Hill.Referee:
