Find out how the Colleges & Universities fared in Gameweek 18 of the SSE Airtricty League.

Notable Appearances

Longford Town's Rhys Gorman thought he had earned his side a point away to league leaders Dundalk with the equaliser before a late winner would rob Longford of any reward. There was a more positive outcome for UCD's Gary O'Neill as he shrugged off a knock to add to his increasing tally for the Belfield side in their defeat of Cabinteely.

Garbhan Coughlan made a goalscoring return to the dominant Limerick side as he came off the bench to direct Ross Mann's cross into the net to cap off a 5-1 defeat of Waterford United.

Colleges & University International Conor Barry struck an important strike for Athlone Town as they registered a much needed win. Barry found himself on the end of new Athlone signing Ronan Hanaphy's (Trinity College) cross.

UL & Wexford Youth's Peter Higgins made his return from injury for Youths against Cork City but could not prevent the Leesiders from taking all three points.
