Cork Con FC J2 50 - 19 Fermoy
Venue: TemplehillCompetition: Junior 2 League
Cork Constitution began their Junior 2 League campaign with a fine win over Fermoy at Templehill on Friday evening. And it was a fine evening, after the deluge endured by the country in recent days. Constitution led 24-12 at the interval, and went on to gain a bonus point victory scoring five tries in the process.
Constitution opened the scoring when Robin O’Flynn kicked a penalty after 5 minutes, and he converted a try by Karl Diskin after 10 minutes for 10-0. Fermoy struck back with a try on 20 minutes scored by flanker Tom O’Donoghue, converted by Jeff Daly. On the half hour, Constitution scored a second try by centre Gavin Fitzgerald, again converted by O’Flynn for 17-7. And just before the interval, they added a try by Dave Hayes, following a line-out. O’Flynn again converted for 24-7.
However, the visitors struck for a second try just before the break by centre Colman Sweeney for 24-12 at the break
Skipper Cormac Fouhy scored on 50 minutes with a strong run in from 20 yards, and O’Flynn converted for 31-12. Patrick Foley replaced Dave Hayes at scrum half and he scored the fifth try, converted by O’Flynn, to leave the score at 38-12 to Constitution.
And in the final 10 minutes, Constitution added further tries Dave Hayes and James Tyner; and a conversion by Robin O’Flynn, before Fermoy got a late consolation try and conversion.
