Clonakilty 38: Skibbereen 24


Clonakilty’s second team travelled to Skibbereen last Sunday. Off the back of a defeat to Bandon the side were looking to get back to winning ways. Skibbereen enjoyed a good start to the game and opened up with a try but failed the conversion. This sparked a bit of life into the Clonakilty side and they began to get on top. Some good carries by the pack sent Maurice Shanley in for Clon’s opening try. From there Clonakilty kicked on with two more tries. Shanley grabbed his second and Ewin Courtney got in on the action. Clon were given a penalty try just before half time and it sealed the bonus point.

Playing into the breeze in the second half Clon played an adventurous running game which showcased some fine skills. Off the back of a scrum Clon broke left with Shanley making the final break and going in for the hat trick. Clon continued to spread the ball wide and used there handling skills well. The result was secured when after building a few phases space opened up out wide for Brendan Canty to sprint into the corner. The Skibbereen side never stopped hammering at a resilient Clon defence and ran in a few consolation scores at the end. Final score Clonakilty 38 Skibbereen 24
