Second Team

South Munster J2 Plate – Dave Dineen Cup Semi-Final

Clonakilty 14: Bandon 14

Last Friday night saw Clonakilty’s 2nd team take on Bandon in the Semi-final of the J2 Plate. On a beautiful evening in Shannonvale a fantastic game was had. Bandon took control of the game first scoring two tries and two conversions in the first half. Clonakilty did well to try and score against the strong Bandon side and were unlucky at times in the 1st half not to do so. The scoreline did not truly reflect the battle that took place in the 1st half and the Clon men made sure in the second half to rectify this.

Half time Clonakilty 0: Bandon 14

The second half led to an exciting finish. Within the first 5 minutes of the second half, Clonakilty worked their way up through the Bandon defence and Travis Coomey went over for Clonakilty’s first try which was converted by out-half Joe Lee. A clash ensued with Clonakilty dominating the attack on the Bandon line. As the clock ticked down Clon’s attack increased and within the last minute they were awarded when Peter Deane powered over the line leaving the home side trailing by just 2 points, 14-12. The crowd held their breath as Joe Lee stepped up to take the conversion, a pressure kick which he superbly slotted between the posts drawing the sides level just at the final whistle with the final score reading 14 all. With the evening closing in it was decided to opt for a replay instead of extra time which now be played this Thursday evening in Bandon at 7.15pm.

This team showed true strength and residence to fight their way back into this game and dominate the 2nd half meaning the replay in Bandon should be quite the game.

The seconds will also be playing in the semi-final of the Kelly cup on Sunday at 12pm in Shannonvale.

Please come out and show your support at either of these games to this well deserving team.
