After nine consecutive victories Bandon’s unbeaten record came to a grinding halt at Old Chapel last Sunday.  In dry and windy conditions the home side played against the strong breeze in the first half.  Error followed error in an opening eleven minute spell that saw Higfield cross the line three times.  Two conversions were added to give the visitors a 19-00 lead.  Bandon rallied and slowly but surely clawed their way back into the game.  A lineout maul was stopped metres short of the Highfield line and when the ball was fed out it was out half Rob O’Sullivan who ducked his marker to touch down.  O’Sullivan added a close range penalty just before the interval to leave it 19-08 at the break.  Bandon scored their second try six minutes into the second half.  Again from a lineout maul great ground was being made and when Highfield brought it down illegally the referee went under the posts to award the penalty try.  Andrew Willis added the conversion.  Bandon did not dominate enough in terms of territory although there were some individual moments that had Highfield on the back foot with veteran winger Eoin Verling rolling back the years with some mesmeric running.  O’Sullivan reduced the gap to a single point with an excellent long range penalty with twenty minutes remaining.  In the last quarter however the home side did not look like scoring a try and did not manage to manufacture another penalty opportunity.  While a disappointing result the nature of the comeback showed tremendous character and Bandon are still in the hunt for honours with semi finals in the Munster League and Kelly Cup to look forward to. This Saturday the 26th April Bandon are at home in the semi final of the Munster League where they will meet North Munster (Gleeson) League runners up Old Crescent of Limerick.  Kick off 2:30
