Results of Division 2 Final
Cork Institute of Technology 22 V Institute of Technology, Carlow 17
CIT recorded a tremendous five point win over IT Carlow ‘A’ to claim the ICRU Division 2 title after a tense 80 minutes of rugby that didn’t really ignite until after half-time.
Whilst the opening 40 minutes saw the scores tied at just 3-3, Darragh O’Keeffe and Colin Sheridan exchanging penalties, CIT started the second period in blistering fashion as a succession of soft penalty concessions from IT Carlow were all punished by the clinical O’Keeffe. O’Keeffe kicked four second half penalties to add to his first-half punt, and although Jared Owens ran over a try for IT Carlow in the 63rd minute, which was converted by Sheridan, CIT replied soon after through a well-worked move that was finished off by powerful front-row substitute Barry McNamara.
That was a killer blow for IT Carlow, and although they didn’t stop fighting in an effort to close the gap, Conor Finan’s late try wasn’t enough to derail CIT’s charge towards the title as they closed out the final few minutes in a very composed manner.
Scorers for CIT: Try: McNamara, Con: O’Keeffe, Pens: O’Keeffe (5).
Scorers for IT Carlow: Tries: Owens, Finan, Con: Sheridan (2), Pen: Sheridan.
