DCU are now one step away from claiming their first ever Irish Universities Harding Cup after they put paid to holders UCD chance for back to back wins with a convincing 2-0 semi final victory.

Jack O'Connor was the DCU goal scoring hero hitting a goal in each half to add to the brace he managed in the previous day's quarter final tie against Trinity College.

O'Connor got off the mark with just 10 minutes played with a cool finish past Conor Kearns after he latched on to a long clearance from the DCU 'keeper Lee Doyle.
UCD never really got going but they did have efforts from Ben Hanrahan and Fergal McDonald saved by Doyle before the break.

But O'Connor struck again before the hour mark with his second goal to seal the win when he applied a neat finish to Sean McCarthy's low cross from the right.
