Womens Soccer – IV Review
UCC were unlucky to be narrowly beaten by eventual winners of the WSCAI Intervarsity’s in IT Carlow, Carlow who had a team full of Irish Internationals were hot favourites, The UCC girls can be proud of making to the semi-finals which guarantees them a place at next year’s IV’s. UCC pushed Carlow all the way and had chances to go in front but were unfortunate to give away a penalty with 5 mins to go and lose 2-1.
However UCC beat Maynooth University in the 3rd/4th place playoff to finish 3rd!!
Well done to all players and coaches for a fantastic tournament!! Next year we will be back!!
The team and player of the tournament was selected by the votes of match officials, team managers and representatives from the WSCAI and FAI.

Well done to Katie McCarthy
- McCarthy was excellent throughout the tournament, scoring two goals and breaking up countless opposition attacks from the middle of the pitch.
