UL retain O'Connor Cup   21/03/2015

UL were in devastating form as they beat DCU by 3-16 to 0-9 to claim the Irish Examiner O’Connor Cup for the second year in a row at Cork IT on Saturday.

The champions, featuring 13 of last year’s successful side, looked to be in for a challenging afternoon as an early 0-4 to 0-1 was wiped out when DCU had points from Carol Hegarty, Sarah Rowe and Lorraine O’Shea.

A penalty from Roisín Leonard put UL back in front in the 16th minute, however, and they led from there, with 1-9 to 0-6 the half-time score.

Driven on by Jennifer Grant and Lorraine Scanlon at midfield, they continued to build the lead in the second half, with two goals in six minutes from Áine Tighe leaving them 3-10 to 0-7 ahead.

From there, it was a procession as Leonard, sub Claire O’Sullivan, player of the game Niamh O’Dea and Aileen Wall all featured on the scoreboard, with DCU limited to two Rowe points in the final quarter.
