DCU advanced to the second round of the Sigerson Cup after a tough test against Oisín McConville's DkIT outfit.

The Louth college put up a very creditable performance and at times it looked like they could cause one of the biggest upsets in Sigerson Cup history.

David Mannix opened the scoring with a free in front of goals, but DkIT responded magnificently, with Longford star David McGivney levelling immediately.

Donal Meegan put DkIT into the lead and their lead was doubled shortly after when a long-range free from Tadhg McEneaney sailed between the posts.

DCU were dealt a major blow, when corner-back Barry Kerr was dismissed on a straight red card for an incident involving opposition midfielder Ciarán Bellew.

Traded Niall Kearns and Desmond Ward traded points before the break as DkIT led at the interval. The second half was a poor affair, in truth, with a free from McEneaney the first score of the half.

Eanna O'Connor and Conor Doherty exchanged points, before the former converted a penalty after Stephen O'Brien was taken down inside the penalty area.

Niall Kearns responded for DkIT, but that was as good as it got for the Louth college, with DCU scoring the final four points of the game, as DCU advanced to the second round by the skin of their teeth. DCU now face UCD next weekend and a much better performance will be needed.

Scorers - DkIT: N Kearns (1f) and T McEneaney 0-2 (2f) each; C Doherty, D McGivney and D Meegan 0-1 each. DCU: E O'Connor 1-3 (1-0 pen, 1f); D Ward 0-2; D Mannix (1f) and S Carthy 0-1 each.

DCU - E Comerford; C Boylan, F Kelly, B Kerr; D Ward, S Akram, P Durcan; S O'Brien, C McGonagle; D Reynolds, S Carthy, D O'Connor; M Bannigan, E O'Connor, D Mannix. Subs: J Mealiff for McGonagle (41); C Bradley for Mannix (45).

DkIT - J O'Donoghue; C Meegan, C Lenehan, I Connor; E Walsh, C Daly, K Traynor; N Kearns, C Bellew; G McSorley, C Doherty, D McGivney; T McEneaney S Hoey, D Meegan. Subs: D Maguire for Bellew (50); S Marry for Hoey (54); A O'Brien for McEneaney (59).
