Cork Con FC J2 16 - 13 Kanturk
Venue: Temple HillCompetition: Junior 2 League
Cork Constitution stayed in touch for Junior 2 League honours with an exciting win over Kanturk at Temple Hill on Monday. The sides were level 13 points each at half time, and both sides had chances to win before Constitution won at the death with a penalty by out half Brendan Monohan.
Brendan Monohan opened the scoring with a 7th minute penalty, but Kanturk hit back with two penalties from John Cronin to leave the visitors 6-3 ahead after 30 minutes play. Fergus Rowan scored Con’s try when he finished a fine move down the left side involving Brendan Monohan, Dave Hayes and Eddie Quinn. Monohan kicked the conversion for 10-6, and added a second penalty in the 40th minute. However, when Con failed to clear from their own line just before the break, Kevin Noonan pounced for a try and Cronin added the points to leave honours even at half time.
The second half was hard fought and the defences just held out until Monohan’s late strike gave Con the points.Referee:
