2019-08-23 UCD v St Pats

FAI Cup action between UCD and St Pats Athletic at the UCD Bowl got off to a flyer as the students obviously had a point to prove having lost their previous match 10-1 against Bohs the previous week. Having fired manager Collie O’Neill, Maciej Tarnogrodzki took the reins as the newly appointed manager… and what a start, Yoyo Mahdy lept highest to head in the opener on 21 minutes and then lively Liam Kerrigan bagged the first of a brace soon after. Despite the vast amount of St Pats possession, UCD were solid at the back. Liam Kerrigan added UCD’s third after the restart and it seemed like curtains for the visitors. Playmaker Conor Clifford pulled a goal back late on with a fine strike into the bottom corner from outside the box, however, it’s UCD that progress through to the next round.
