South Kelly Cup

Clonakilty 27: Bandon 35

Bandon were flying high after their Junior Cup win and came to The Vale last Monday looking to add to their trophy case!  Clonakilty were well up for a battle and were first to score going over for their 1st try during the opening passage of play. It became a physical battle between the sides both scoring almost tit for the 1st 20 minutes. Then Bandon seemed to gain control going over for 2 tries before half time leaving the home side trailing 24-10 at the break.

Clonakilty needed a big second half performance if they were dampen Bandon’s fire in the second half. Clonakilty started well with a try for Sean Hudson in the corner. Bandon retaliated quickly with a try making sure Clonakilty didn’t close the gap. But from the restart JD O’Hea made a fabulous run breaking through the Bandon defence and over for a try, leaving the score Clonakilty 24 Bandon 29. Unfortunately Clonakilty failed to build from this momentum with ball-handling errors allowing Bandon to extend their lead with 2 penalties in comparison to our 1 in the second half. As the final whistle blew there was an overall feeling that this weekend nobody could get the better of Bandon and it was all theirs for their deserved taking!

Clonakilty will be disappointed with the final result but will be happy with the progress being made within the second team set-up which hopefully follows on into next season.
