Richmond put up good show but lose to Bandon in cup

RICHMOND travelled to Bandon tonight where they took on the local side in the Munster Junior Clubs Challenge Cup. They put up a good show against their more fancied opponents and the 24-12 result ensured that the outcome of this game was open right to the final minutes.
Bandon took the lead early in the game when they scored a converted try. It was tight after that with Richmond well in the game. They were rewarded on 35 minutes when Darragh Joyce got in for a well-taken try to leave just two points between the sides at half time with a scoreline of 7-5.
Early in the second half Bandon added a converted try to their tally and when they once again breached the Richmond defence for their third try, it looked as if the Limerick side were in for a sizeable defeat. Richmond, however, fought back with Eoin Hanley going over for a try converted by Jack O’Hanlon to reduce the deficit to 24-12 and even though they went out of this competition tonight they can certainly feel proud of this performance.
