2nds Unable for Student Power
Metro Cup – Old Wesley 17 UCD 27
In the Metro Cup Old Wesley were unable to handle the pace of a well drilled UCD team. In an entertaining match Old Wesley led 17-8 at half time thanks to tries by Ivan Campbell and Davy Henshaw, and kicks by Eoin Fitzpatrick. But two UCD tries early in the second half put College back in front. Another with 20 minutes to go was the nail in the coffin and despite some late Wesley rallies there were no further scores.
This was a disappointing result but overall it was a highly successful season for this side who topped Metro League Division 2 and gained promotion to Division 1 for next season.
