Fitzpatrick Cup Review 2016

Fitzpatrick Cup Review 2016
It was a good weekend for the U.C.C. Bombers in Birmingham as both teams reached the semi-finals. The group stages had mixed results for both sides with the Bombers first team losing their first game to the reigning champions, University of Birmingham Lions, on their home ground. The second Bombers team defeated Maynooth University after racing into an early lead Maynooth fought back before the Bombers pulled away again in the second half. The First Bombers team defeated Cambridge University with a dominating performance in their second game that assured they advanced from the group stage. The second Bombers team played out a thrilling game with Oxford University that ended in a draw after Oxford had gone into an early lead, but U.C.C. fought back to secure a draw.
This meant that both of the U.C.C. teams advanced to the knockout stages. The second Bombers team were first up against University of Birmingham Lions but their bigger squad size as they went on to win the game. The U.C.C. first team were more successful as they went on to win a very close game with Oxford, with only one score in the game at its conclusion.
This meant that U.C.C. first team would play Birmingham in a repeat of last year’s final. Unfortunately for U.C.C. the end result was to prove the same as Birmingham went on to win but it was much more of a contest this year with the scores at half time Birmingham 1.2 8 points, U.C.C. 0.4 4 points. U.C.C. created chances but were unable to score a goal in the final with Birmingham running out winners 6.6. 42 points to UCC 0.7.7 point.
