CUFL Premier Division Quarter Finals Decided

20 November 2013

Matchday 5 in the UMBRO CUFL was played today with some extraordinary results.

UCC beat Cork IT 3-0 on Tuesday night to ensure they had a quarter final place in Premier South. IT Carlow travelled to Waterford knowing the home team could pip them for top spot, however a 3-0 win for Carlow ensured a 100% record and pushed WIT into fourth place.
In the late game UL needed to win to reach the quarters but the hosts Athlone IT knew they needed to win by two clear goals and duly do so winning 3-1. Athlone, UCC and WIT all finished on 9points but AIT had the better goal difference and finished second and a coveted home draw in the quarter finals.
In Premier North UCD beat DCU 2-1 to finish top with DCU finishing second, while the other two games finished 0-0 between UUJ and Letterkenny, and DIT and NUI Maynooth. This meant that Maynooth finished third and holders DIT finish fourth and that sets up a mouthwatering quarter final between IT Carlow and DIT.
Draw, first named teams at home:
UCD v Waterford IT
IT Carlow v DIT
Athlone IT v NUI Maynooth
