UCC J2’s v GMIT Mayo: Division 3 Quarter final
UCC’s quarter final game required the long trip up to Mayo but goalkeeper Brian Cronin was the highlight of the day as he kept GMIT Mayo off the scoresheet and also added his name to his side’s. A kickout from the Cork keeper managed to deceive his opposite number one and become the first keeper to score in this year’s campaign. Combined with a double from Danny Hinds.
UCC Frshers v National College of Ireland ‘B’: Division 4 Quarter final
UCC Freshers pulled off a late comeback to deny NCI B a semi-final place. A double from Jordan Malone had put the Dublin side 2 goals in front. They could not shut up shop though and Sean Sexton found the net to bring UCC back into it. Tom Sutcliffe managed to get the equaliser to set up a dramatic finish. With extra-time looming, Jason Cullinane broke NCI hearts finding the winner in the final minute.
We congratulate both of our sides on making this stage in each of their competitions and we would encourage everyone to make it out to the farm for 2 o’clock on Monday to cheer on the lads.
