UCC Premier Squad Vs NUIG
Our premier team kicked off their season with a comprehensive victory over NUIG in the WSCAI Premier Division on Wednesday 9th October in the Mardyke.
Under new management this season with the appointment of Dave Bell and Laurie Hill, UCC started brightly and were rewarded after fifteen minutes through winger Annika Lohmeyer. After twenty two minutes, NUIG capitalised on a mistake at the back to level the score. UCC responded positively after conceding, with Christina Dring firing UCC back in front. A spell of impressive attacking play down the right hand side, resulted in Lydia Looney adding two more goals to bring the scoreline to 4-1 at half time.
The second half proved no different as UCC came out strong and continued to threaten the NUIG goal. Emilie Indreberg put another past the visitors and Cork City FC striker scored twice more to complete her hat-trick to put the game to bed. An excellent display gives UCC momentum going forward into their next outing in the league when they travel to face GMIT on Wednesday 23rd.
