Two second half goals from Ben Ryan gave the Colleges FAI a well-deserved victory over the Welsh Universities in a friendly fixture at Peamount United FC.
Ryan put the Colleges ahead on 65 minutes with a fierce right-footed drive off the inside of the post after good work by Danny McGuinness. Six minutes later, Ryan added the second with a curling shot past goalkeeper Phil Draper.
The Welsh had a great chance to get back into the game on 76 minutes when Rhys McEnteer fouled Aaron Jewell in the box. However, Michael Schlingermann kept out Chris Miethke's spot kick with a brilliant save.
