Score: 1 vs 2

Match Report: Conditions proved tough in the Farm this Monday as our J2's attempted to fight for their place in the Division 3 CUFL Final. The early exchanges saw a lot of ball lost in the middle of the park with both teams struggling to get settled. This was up until St Patricks Ross Taheny broke through to be one on one with UCC's Brian Cronin who saved excellently but unfortunately the rebound was followed up well and finished by the number 9. The halftime break followed shortly after this breakthrough. As the second half developed the J2's started to commit more bodies forward with St Patricks of course doing the opposite. Time went on with UCC creating minimal chances, that was up until Colm O'Regan did well to find a gap through the keepers legs after a long ball forward found his feet. This brought the lads through to extra time which was well deserved. Unfortunately their second half efforts really wore the lads out and it was once again Ross Taheny who hit past Brian Cronin in the UCC goal. A very unfortunate loss for the lads but a humongous effort must be congratulated.
