Bandon just about scraped home in a dramatic league final at Musgrave Park last Sunday.  There was a strong cross wind that favoured the Kerry side in the first half but it was Bandon who opened the scoring through the boot of Andrew Willis with a close range penalty.  Dingle responded with a penalty of their own minutes later to level the score.  In an extremely physical contest Bandon were struggling to get to grips with the Dingle pack but managed to force a penalty at a ruck.  Olann Crowley put the ball into the corner and from the subsequent lineout Bandon set up a maul.  A try looked imminent but when Dingle infringed Bandon once again went for the corner.  Again the maul was stopped but when the ball was spun out it was then retained for a couple of phases before hooker Scott Kingston took a pop pass and crashed over.  Willis added the conversion to make it 10-03.  In the remainder of the half Bandon’s defence was stretched several times and it took some last ditch tackling to keep Dingle from adding to their tally before the break. Bandon used the wind reasonably well in the early stages of the second half and certainly were now spending more time in the opposition third of the field.  There was some excellent ball retention amongst both forwards and backs and this paid off when the ball was fed out across the backline where Rob Wilmot squeezed over in the corner.  Willis converted superbly from the touchline.  At 17-03 one more score looked like it would wrap the game up for Bandon but from a turnover in the Dingle ’22 the Kerry side moved play across the field and a scored a superb try.  The conversion was added to make it a one score game.  Bandon to their credit went back downfield and with eight minutes remaining forced another penalty which Willis calmly slotted to go ten points up.  But with two minutes on the clock the Dingle backs again showed what they could do with another scintillating long range try.  The conversion reduced the gap to three.  Dingle retained the ball continuously for the last two minutes of play and they had a couple of half breaks that could have breached the Bandon line.  There was some terrific defence in this period with Dermot Robinson in particular standing out for the accuracy and power of this tackling.  After what seemed an age Olann Crowley got over the ball at a ruck and forced a penalty.  He kicked the penalty to touch which signalled the end of an enthralling game.  This was Bandon’s first trophy at J2 level in eleven years.  In all they played eleven league games this season, winning ten with just one defeat, scoring thirty eight tries in the process while only conceding eleven. This weekend Bandon are away to Cork Con in the quarter final of the J2 Cup. (Time and date tbc)
