DCU made it safe passage to the semi finals of the 2018 RUSTLERS IUFU Collingwood Cup in Queen's University Upper Malone with a 5-1 victory over Ulster University in the Quarter Finals.

Any early nerves for the Glasnevin side were immediately calmed when Jamie Lennon found Jack O'Connor and last year's Harding Cup Player of the tournament squeezed his shot underneath Matthew McClurg.

DCU sensed blood and doubled the advantage after seven minutes of play when Waterford FC midfielder Rory Feely coolly finished past McClurg. Any attempt for Ulster University to settle into the game were thwarted when Alan O'Sullivan got his goal and O'Connor made it four after only 19 minutes of play.

The second half was a much quieter affair. Lennon made it five just moments into the second half when his free kick deflected in past McClurg. Ulster University did manage to pull a goal back midway through the second half when Adam Brown headed home from a corner.

The Northern side were forced to play the remainder of the game with 10 men when Kealan McDermott was dismissed for a second bookable offence.
