CUFL Semi-Final Round Up
UCC had three teams in action in the ‘Rustlers’ CUFL semi-finals this week.
Our senior side travelled to IT Carlow on Tuesday for the Premier semi-final and with the deadlock unbroken after 120 minutes, penalties were required to separate the two sides. UCC held their nerve in the shootout to progress 4-3 and set up a meeting with UCD in the final, a repeat of the the 2017 decider.
Wednesday saw our Freshers side travel to face DCU ‘C’ in the Division 3 semi-final but unfortunately the Dublin students won out 3-0 in Drumcondra.
The club’s J3 side took on Griffith College on Thursday in The Farm in their Division 4 semi-final and were a goal up early on through Darragh Kiely. Griffith pulled it back to 1-1 however and penalties were required to split the sides. The visitors triumphed in the shootout and progressed to the final.
