Cork Con FC J2 10 - 7 Skibbereen
Venue: SkibbereenCompetition: Junior 2 League – Second Phase
Cork Constitution J2 XV travelled to Skibbereen on Sunday and came away with the spoil to keep their chances of honours alive in the J2 League. Last week against Tralee they staged a second half come back but came up just short; this week they succeeded with two late tries.
The first half was scoreless, and the strong Skibbereen side took the lead midway through the second period with a converted try. In the final quarter, Constitution got a break when Fergus Rowan scored an unconverted try. And then with the clock running down, second row Cormac Fouhy forced his way over for the decisive score. Skibbereen had a late penalty chance to save the game but their kicker was wide with his attempt.
Having gained 10 points from their three games in the second phase of the J2 League, Constitution top their section, by a point over Skibbereen in second place. They now await the outcome of the other section to know their semi final opponents in which they will have home advantage.Referee:
