UCC power into Fitzgibbon Cup final with victory over UCD

REIGNING champions UCC produced a powerful second half display to easily defeat a talented UCD side 1-20 to 0-14 at Carnmore, Galway to setup an all-Munster Fitzgibbon Cup final with Mary Immaculate College of Limerick.

A late goal by Waterford’s Brian O’Sullivan put the icing UCC’s victory against a UCD side who failed to raise a gallop in the final quarter to their opponents.

O’Sullivan and Cork’s Conor Lehane were stars for UCC contributing 1-11 between them.

Brothers Brian and Barry Lawton were also impressive up front while James Barry, Darragh Fives and William Egan in their half-back line negated the UCD threat.

UCC now go forward to face Mary Immaculate College, who they drew 1-13 apiece with in the group stages, in tomorrow afternoon’s final in Pearse Stadium.
