Cork Con FC J2 0 - 25 Highfield
Venue: Model farm RoadCompetition: Dennehy Cup Final
Highfield proved to strong for Constitution in the Dennehy Cup final played at a sunny Model Farm Road on Sunday morning.
Constitution played with the slope in the first period, but still trailed 0-3 at the interval to a 5th minute penalty by Jim Ahern. Their best chance came in the 20th minute when a good backs move almost put left wing Kevin Cooke in for a try. However, only spirited defence kept Highfield at bay also.
The game was essentially decided in the 5th minute of the second half when Highfield No.8 Neil Griffin scored from a 5 metre scrum and Jim Ahern added the points for 10-0. Constitution made little headway, and after they had a try was disallowed midway in the second half, Highfield pulled away with two further tries in the final quarter.Referee:
