UCC secure home quarter-final

Thursday, 9th February, 2017 1:00am

UCC are through to the quarter-finals of the Fitzgibbon Cup, securing a home draw after an excellent win over Maynooth on Tuesday.

It was UCC’s third win in the competition this year, which resulted in the Cork college topping Group D after they beat Maynooth 0-22 to 0-14. They will play DCU next week in the Mardyke for a place in the Fitzgibbon Cup weekend, which is being hosted this year by NUIG.

Meanwhile, CIT were not quite as fortunate as their Cork counterparts, drawing with NUIG under lights in Cork on Tuesday night, a result which saw the Bishopstown-based outfit knocked out of the competition.

The Cork students welcomed back John ‘Bubbles’ O’Dwyer to the starting 15 and they hurled well for large parts of the encounter, particularly Cork subkeeper Patrick Collins who pulled off a number of wonder-saves to deny NUIG a goal in the game.

NUIG, who were behind Cork IT for the entire game, drew the game in the last minute of normal time. A draw was enough for the visitors as they had a better scoring difference and NUIG now progress to the last eight.
