KILDARE’S Susie O’Carroll was the UCD hero as they now set their sights on three-in-a-row Ashbourne titles following their emphatic quarter-final victory over NUIG in Dangan on Saturday. On a scoreline of 5-8 to 0-8, Wexford girl Una Leacy also impressed with her return of 2-2. The holders will play CIT in the semi-final in two weeks time after their narrow triumph over Garda College midweek.
Courtesy of their 5-7 to 0-2 win against UUJ, Ashbourne hosts UCC, have set up a penultimate meeting with WIT who were pushed all the way by UL, 2-10 to 0-7.
Tipperary pair Jill Horan and Aoife McLoughney were crucial to the UCC victory, firing all but one point of their tally.
Galway senior panellist Susan Keane and Slaneysider Ursula Jacob, between them claimed 2-8 of the WIT total, while the accuracy of Limerick’s Niamh Mulcahy kept UL in the hunt for long stages.
Elsewhere, outstanding Katrina Mackey’s injury time point earned Christ the King, Cork a deserved draw in a thrilling All Ireland senior college’s semi-final in Pilltown. When it looked as if champions St Brigid’s, Callan had done enough, Mackey soled through from midfield to land a late equaliser (1-6 to 0-9).
Callan through the accuracy of Anna Farrell, Ciara Holden, Niamh Phelan and Captain Denise Gaule, held a 0-5 to 0-2 interval lead.
However, powered on by Mackey and her twin sister Pamela in defence, they fought back through Katrina Mackey’s goal at the three-quarter stage, and then at the death her point that gave the Cork city girls a second bite of the cherry on February 28. Portumna Community School await the winners following their six-point triumph over Ulster champions, St Mary’s Magherafelt, Derry.
St.Mac Nissis Garron Tower, Antrim are through to the B final, however the other semi-final fell foul to the weather yesterday. And in the C decider, St Colm’s Draperstown, Derry will meet Grennan College, Thomastown, Kilkenny.
All five matches in the Division Three and Four of the National League were postponed because of the inclement conditions.
