Important Victory for Soccer Club.
UCC faced a tricky assignment in Galway today where they overcame Sligo IT in a CUFL relegation play-off game. The game played at Mervue Utd’s artificial pitch finished 3-1 in our favour. Goals from Sean O’Callaghan (2) and a Brian Murphy penalty put UCC 3-0 ahead at the break. Sligo came out fighting after half-time and dominated in a 20 minute spell which resulted in the North West outfit pulling one goal back. The college finished strongly however, and could have extended their lead as they created a number of good chances. This is an important victory for the senior team as they maintain their status among the elite teams in third level competition.
