Arthur's day fails to sink DIT


Published 13/02/2013 | 04:00

NIALL ARTHUR's 1-10 for St Patrick's-Mater Dei in Clontarf wasn't enough to stop DIT securing their third victory and qualify for the knockout stages as Group D winners.

Centre-forward Mike Moloney put DIT ahead with a clinical finish from a 21-metre free eight minutes in, but Pat's restored parity thanks to a brace of scores from Arthur and one from midfielder James Kelly.

DIT settled towards the end of the half courtesy of well-taken efforts from Dublin star David Treacy (two), Moloney and Niall Quinn, but the reliable Arthur found the net in the third minute of stoppage-time.

The sides were level (1-5 to 1-5) heading into the second period, but three points from the increasingly influential Treacy restored DIT's three-point cushion.

Finn McGarry saved a penalty 11 minutes from time and DIT moved six in front via scores from Treacy (three) and Galway's Niall Quinn.

Pat's threatened a mini-revival with points from Arthur (three) and Liam Ryan, but Stephen O'Connor's fourth score sealed the win for DIT.

Scorers – DIT: D Treacy 0-8 (6f), M Moloney 1-2 (1-1f), S O'Connor 0-4, N Quinn 0-2. St Patrick's-Mater Dei: N Arthur 1-10 (1-8f), J Kelly, L Ryan 0-1 each.
