The Mens senior Hockey team recorded a famous victory over Bandon on Saturday to win the Munster Senior League for the first time in the clubs History. Bandon only needed a draw to win the title themselves but Jack Cherry scored for College 3 minutes from time to send the skull and cross bones players into ecstasy. Earlier, Greg Chambers had put UCC 1-0 up before Bandon equalised.
This win completes a famous double for the University after securing the Munster Senior Cup earlier in the season. Well done to all the players and to Coaches Neil Welch, Less Ruddock, Kevin Murray and Paudie Harnett
