Munster Senior League Premier
Avondale came from a goal down to defeat reigning chances UCC in the Munster Senior League’s only game of the day.
UCC lead the eagerly anticipated encouther going into the break, but The Dales produced a brilliant second half performance to maintain their unbeaten start to the Premier.
Indeed the comeback win helped the former kings of the FAI Intermediate Cup leap frog near by rivals Ringmahon Rangers and go top of the table at this early stage.
UCC came into the game on the back of a home defeat to Middleton, but started well, scored early and took an advantage into the break.
However, Vinnie O’Brien levelled for the hosts and put them back in victory contention.
With less than 20 minutes to go the home side snatched a winner as Man of the Match Josh O’Shea found the back of the net.
Both sides now prepare for FAI Intermediate Cup action and will hope to progress to the open draw with wins next weekend.
Meanwhile an Ian Stapleton peno was enough to secure Cobh Wanderers victory in the weekends other MSL top flight tie.
