The seconds bowed out of the Junior Cup on Sunday after a 13-11 defeat away to Tralee. Bruff had the better of the first half and went into an Early lead from a Richie McAuliffe Penalty.

Enright was quickest to react and touched down for the 5 pointer. Tralee kicked a Pen before the end of the opening 40 to leave it 8-3 to Bruff at the Break.
