Venue: MardykeCompetition: South Munster Junior 2 League
UCC produced a scintillating second half comeback to clinch victory over Constitution at the Mardyke on Wednesday night. Constitution led 19-12 going into the final quarter, but College scored three fine tries to take the spoils.
Tom Harrington scored for Constitution in the first attack after Cormac Fouhy blocked down a College clearance kick. Simon Barry added two penalties for 11-0 after nine minutes. College out half Luke Duffy showed his class with a fine cut through the Con defence for a try on 20 minutes and he converted a second try four minutes later to give College a 12-11 lead. However, Con hit back before the break when Oisin Cuddy finished a fine move to leave Con 16-12 ahead.
Simon Barry extended Con’s lead in the 52nd minute with a penalty, but College upped their game thereafter, and with Duffy pulling the strings, his side ran out clear winners.Referee:
