CIT were very strong in the group games and came in second with a great win over the winners in the first game. With there Goalkeeper Mary McDonnell having a great tournament.

South Futsal Finals at UL

On Wednesday afternoon in Mary Immaculate College in Limerick the UL Ladies sides emulated the Mens teams in their own WSCAI Futsal Cup to match the Mens 1, 2 finish at the CUFL Futsal Cup the day before. The UL ‘A’ team looked like worthy champions from the start and look a force to be reckoned with come the National Final after scoring 33 goals in just 4 games (a feat which betters the UL Mens teams record of 32 goals in 5 games). With such firepower on show both the Mary I and the UL ‘B’ teams were in for a struggle from the start. With the UL ‘A’ team playing great Futsal and displaying the skills and finishing required of a top team it was up to the UL’B’ team and Mary I to fight it out for 2nd place. The first game between them ended in a 4-4 draw while UL ‘B’ nicked the second encounter 6-5 to grab second place. Top scorer on the day was Jennie Brennan of UL ‘A’ with 8 goals.
