South - Junior 2 League Section 2


Clonakilty 22: Ballincollig 20

Clonakilty 2nds commenced the season competitive campaign with a league outing at home to Ballincollig. The Clonakilty team comprised a mix of experienced players and youth coming from the underage ranks. The team was captained on the day by Phelim O’Neill who recently celebrated a significant birthday and has been 23 years playing for various Clon adult teams including the All Ireland League.

Ballincollig opened the scoring with a penalty. Clon replied with a try from Philip Hinchy. 3 other tries followed from Shane Deasy and 2 from Joe Crowley with 1 conversion. Ballincollig got back into the mix late on scoring 3 tries and one conversion.

The younger players Conor Murphy, Cathal O’Regan, Liam White, Killian O’Driscoll, Michael Henchion and Cathal Mortell were excellent in the pack and all displayed promise for the future. The experience of Stephen Cotter, Cathal O’Regan Snr, Ger McCarthy, Joe Crowley, Maurice Shanley, Gearoid Brennan, Robert Howick, Shane and Eoin Deasy was crucial in achieving a positive result. A special mention for Sean Dinneen playing in his first game of Rugby and created a try with quick hands with his first touch of the ball. New players are particularly welcome.

The next league match is away to Kinsale on Saturday, October 20th at 6.30pm.

Team: 1 Conor Murphy, 2 Cathal O’Regan, 3 Stephen Cotter, 4 Cathal O’Regan, 5 Liam White, 6 Killian O’Driscoll, 7 Cathal Mortell, 8 Gerard McCarthy, 9 Joe Crowley, 10 Eoghan Deasy, 11 Gearoid Brennan, 12 Shane Deasy, 13 Maurice Shanley, 14 Rob Howick, 15 Phelim O’Neill, 16 Philip Hinchy, 17 Mike Henchion, 18 Brendan Canty, 19 Philip Henchy, 20 Sean Dineen
