UCD regain Collingwood!

UCD regained the Collingwood Cup they last held in 2007 with a narrow 1-0 win over NUIG in the final on Friday. A goal from former Shamrock Rovers forward Robbie Creevy sealed victory - a 25-yard chip which ducked just under the bar and which was the Galway side's only goal against from play in the whole tournament. NUIG had a penalty appeal turned down on the hour, but were reduced to ten men five minutes from the end, and Dave McMillan nearly put the issue beyond doubt shortly afterwards when another lob went just inches over the bar. However, the one goal was enough, and the Collingwood Cup is coming back home! UCD - C. Burke; O'Reilly (Doyle 30), Keaveney, Leahy, Lehane; Roche (Geoghegan 82), Dineen, Creevy, McMahon; D McMillian, Wilson (Whelan 76). Subs not used - P. Burke, O'Toole, McFlynn, McGroarty
