WSCAI Intervarsities Day One Roundup

14 April 2016

IT Sligo caused a major surprise at the opening day of the Women's Soccer Colleges Association of Ireland Intervarsities Cup tournament in Athlone IT with a 3-0 quarter final drubbing of the holders UCD.

Northern Ireland Senior International winger Catherine Hyndman shocked the holders with a beautifully struck opening goal after seven minutes.
The out of sorts Belfield side failed to get back on terms and then conceded two further goals in the final 15 minutes when the impressive Hyndman combined with Aoife Brennan to set up Denise McGrath for the second and shortly after Rachel Kearns sealed the win with a third.

IT Sligo will meet the free scoring Maynooth University in to-day's semi final after striker Amber Barrett grabbed four of their goals in a comfortable 7-2 defeat of DCU.
Rebecca Carroll, Eimear Lafferty and Rachel Doyle were the other scores for the Co Kildare side who lead 5-1 at the break. The DCU goals came from Aoibhinn Webb and Joanna Byrne.

The highly fancied IT Carlow had little difficulty accounting for Waterford IT 5-0 with Claire O'Riordan in top form netting two of their five goals to set up a semi final tie against UCC the 2-0 winners over hosts Athlone IT. While Aoife Moloney, Lauren Dwyer and Rebecca Horgan netted the other three.

A goal in each half from Katie McCarthy and Lauren Murphy was enough to see UCC, last years beaten finalists, past a luckless Athlone IT after the home side had to replace goalkeeper Richael Timothy early on though injury.
