Seconds win narrowly against UCC in Semi-Final.
The Seconds defeated UCC today by 29 points to 22 in a game qhich we could easily have lost.We never lost the lead but seemed hell bent on keeping UCC in the game with a series of costly errors.This will worry Sean Browne and Brian Murphy with the two finals over the next two weeks.We scored some fine tries and led early on through James O`Neill`s fine finish from a maul.Aidan McNulty`s converted and also added the points to Ross Butler`s score on 8 minutes after Harry de Stacpoole`s run created the chance.14-0 at that stage and we were coasting.College had a penalty soon after but Mark Doyle had a superb individual score to push us out to 19-3.Doyle beat 5 or 6 tackles in a thrilling run from half way.Sloppy defence let UCC back in on the half hour which they converted for a half time scoreline of 19-10.
Darren Moroney then had our fourth try on 52 minutes but two errors then allowed College back in.Both were poor scores to concede but suddenly we were at 24-22.We dug deep however and Doyle had his second on 57 minutes to finish the scoring.Plenty to work for the Coaches but we showed great resilience in getting our scores at the vital times.Final score 29-22.
