Kennedy lands last-gasp winner

Rockwell College 11 CBC (Cork) 8

COLEMAN Kennedy nailed a last-gasp winning penalty for Rockwell College at Clanwilliam yesterday as the Tipperary outfit captured the Bowen Shield for the first time since 1998.

Kennedy's ice-cool effort was the final kick of the game, and ended a long drought for Rockwell, who had Ireland's Denis Leamy in their ranks when they last won this competition.

Rockwell captain Sonny Dwyer scored a first-half try and Kennedy's two penalties, one in each half, proved crucial. CBC responded with a Patrick Leahy and penalty from Ryan Foley, but yellow cards for Foley and front-row Jack Corbett were costly.

ROCKWELL -- D Lannigan-Ryan, M Fitzgerald, A Sutcliffe, D Foley, N Flynn, G Delaney, S Dwyer, J Houlihan, C Moloughney (A Barron), D Johnston, R Maher (L Murchan), S O'Donoghue (D Riley), C Kennedy, K Maher, G Henry.

CBC -- D Fitzgerald, C Slowey, J Corbett, D O'Brien, A McCarthy, T Arragin, R O'Sullivan, P Leahy, R Foley, J Dowling, A Finn (P Kavanagh), J Ryan (C McCarthy), J Whooley, C McAuliffe, C Monahan.
