Munster Senior League Premier Division
UCC opened up a seven point lead at the top of the Munster Senior League Premier Division table on Saturday.
The title hopefuls pulled clear of College Corinthians with victory over last years titlist Avondale.
Indeed, the single strike win may just have any hopes The Dales have of retaining their title. UCC and Cobh Wanderers won’t feel out of the race as of yet seen as they have three and four games in hand over the leaders respectively.
The game was tight throughout and it took up and until the 80 minute for the opening goal to arrive.
David Dalton raced onto a long O’Hanlon clearance and lifted the ball over O’Sullivan’s head to break the deadlock.
The Dales pushed hard for the equalizer and with 5 mins left to play a Simon Falvey diving header from a Josh O’Shea cross came back off the post to deny the home team a share of the points.
