Cork Con FC J1 8 - 6 Highfield
Venue: Woodleigh ParkCompetition: Munster Seconds League
Constitution followed up their Seconds League win over Sunday’s Well with a hard earned win over Highfield at Woodleigh Park on Sunday. Highfield led 3-0 at the interval and for the most part it was not pretty from either side with a cross-field wind compromising the standard of play.
Having conceded penalties either side of half time, kicked by Highfield No.10 Barry Buckley, Constitution set about their task in the second period with more conviction. The Con pack controlled affairs with No.8 Alan Ross leading the way, and set up a well-taken try by Rory O’Sullivan in the 70th minute. It was unconverted, but then with time running down Constitution won a penalty that was converted by Shane Kelly to register a narrow victory.
Both sides will look forward to more enjoyable play in the weeks ahead. Next Sunday Constitution play UCC at Temple Hill.Referee:
