UCD win 0-13 to 1-15.

The goal was the third score of the match and as soft as the back of my sack.

UCD 1-15

UCC 0-13

WATERFORD’S DJ FORAN scored 11 points as UCD put themselves in with a good chance of qualification for the Fitzgibbon Cup quarter-finals with victory over UCC at the Mardyke on Wednesday.
Counter-intuitively though, it is the defeated UCC who have guaranteed themselves a spot in the last eight, benefiting from every permutation after UCD play CIT in Belfield next week.
A UCD win gives them top spot with UCC second; a CIT win of between one and seven points would hand the winning of the group to UCC ahead of UCD; and a CIT win of eight or more points would see them qualify at UCD’s expense.
Going on this showing, though, UCD will be hard to beat, having led from the fourth minute, when Tom Phelan struck for a well-taken goal, set up by Stephen Quirke. That made it 1-1 to 0-1 and though the home side – missing Mark Coleman, Shane Kingston and Tom Devine as well as losing Chris O’Leary to injury in the first half – matched their visitors for points, a goal never materialised.
Foran finished the first half with five points as UCD led by 1-9 to 0-8 at half-time, Darragh Fitzgibbon top-scoring for UCC but a total of six wides indicative of their troubles.
A sixth for Foran on the resumption stretched the lead to five points and though Mark O’Brien and Fitzgibbon had UCC points in response, they never came closer than that.
Three in a row from Foran, the third an excellent score from the right set up by John Joe Ryan and Séamus Flanagan, eased UCD into a six-point lead with 20 minutes left and Tadhg de Búrca marshalled a strong defensive effort, drawing the ball towards himself like a magnet.
Quirke could have made things safe for UCD on 53 minutes but Jack Barry saved well to deny him a goal. At the other end, John Power went closest for UCC but shot wide and the away side saw out the game well.
Scorers for UCD: DJ Foran 0-11 (0-7 frees, 0-1 65), Tom Phelan 1-0, Séamus Flanagan 0-2, James Maher, Stephen Quirke 0-1 each.
Scorers for UCC: Darragh Fitzgibbon 0-7 (0-4 frees), Mark O’Brien, Michael Breen, Robbie O’Flynn, Rickard Cahalane, John Power, Seán Hayes 0-1 each.

Poor game. From a Cork point of view Griffin and fitzgibbon very good but after that nobody helped their cause much.

Davy Fitzgerald shouts abuse at DCU Management. There's a bit of bad language so be warned.

He's Fr O Neills - handy club hurler - played FB mostly on underage teams but has been tried as a forward too - good hand, honest player

Tim O Mahony could be ruined by his flexibility, I seen it happen before when players dont know their best position or a gap needs to be plugged
I say play your best players in their best positions - I'd retain him as a forward

Thought Rickard Cahalane played well also, won and hit the world of ball.
