Cork Con FC J2 23 - 20 UCC
Venue: Temple HillCompetition: South Munster Junior 2 League
Constitution reversed the previous week’s result between the sides on Wednesday evening at Temple Hill with a thrilling three point victory in the J2 League.
College had won 31-19 in the previous game, and opened where they left off with an early try by Luke Duffy that he converted himself. Con hit back with a Simon Barry penalty, and then a try by Gary Feehan in the 33rd minute. Barry’s conversion gave Con an 8-7 lead. On the stroke of half time, Conor Desmond squeezed in at the corner to give Con a handy 13-7 interval lead.
College reduced the deficit with a try from a maul on the Con line by Dave O’Driscoll, and a penalty by Duffy in the 58th minute edged his side 15-13 in front. An intercept try by College from a kick and chase from half way by Oscar O’Sullivan, converted by Duffy, gave College a flattering 20-13 lead on 64 minutes. But Con were not done yet, and a fine try by Conor Desmond converted by Barry in the 71st minute tied up the scores at 20-20. In added time, Con were pressing hard on the College line and were rewarded when Simon Barry converted a last minute penalty for the win.Referee:
