Collingwood Cup: UCD 3 - 0 Maynooth

UCD 3 - 0 MaynoothCUFL

Day 1 of the Collingwood Cup saw us face a tricky quarter final against a strong Maynooth side.

Coming off the back of a brilliant 12-0 victory over Colaiste Stiofan Naofa in the CUFL Quarter Final last week, UCD were enterring the tournament in fine form and determined to make their mark in an attempt to reclaim the trophy after last years detail against UCC in the final.

The match started brightly with both sides creating chances, however it was Daire O'Connor who went closest in the early exchanges as his effort came back off the bar. 

After last weeks hat trick against Colaiste Stiofan Naofa, Georgie Kelly was coming into the week in excellent form, and had been identified as one to watch by the FAI in their Collingwood Cup preview

It didn't take him to break his duct in the competition as he broke the deadlock with just over 10 minutes to go until the break.

One became two soon after the restart as once again Georgie Kelly stepped up with the goods to extend our lead and grab his second of the game. 

Daire O'Connor then sealed the game mid way through the second half as he grabbed our third of the game to put the tie beyond doubt. 

We will now face DCU in the semi final tomorrow (Tuesday) at 2.30pm in Queen's University Belfast.
