We watched a tough tight game with momentum swaying over and back between the two sides tonight under lights in Kilballyowen.
Bruff dominated the first half, camping in the Con 22 for many periods but failing to convert this to scores.
Cons were down to thirteen men at one stage, a kickable penalty for a deliberate slapdown of the ball in the middle of the field being spurned to kick for the corner by the Bruff pack, but even down to thirteen men, Con defended their lines extremely well and lifted the siege, managing to go 8 points to 3 up even while still down a man courtesy of a Simon Zebo penalty and a try by Con Full back Robert Clune under the posts. Bruff out-half RichiemcAiliffe managed to block down the attempted conversion to keep the Con lead to a minimum.
with only four minutes lef ton the clock, Bruff finished another period of forward dominacne with a try by Andrew White brining the game to a close with a well deserved draw.
Mike McCarthy was on photo duty tonight, I’ll get some of them up when I get them together later on.
