Devastating for the team

UCC have won the Higher Educational Senior Hurling Championship for the 40th time with a 0-18 to 2-11 win over IT Carlow on Wednesday evening.

Having conceded two early goals, UCC trailed by four at half time and were six points in arrears early in the second half.

They were then reduced to 14 men when defender Niall O’Leary was shown a red card in the final quarter but Man of the Match Shane Conway helped point them to victory - the Kerryman finishing with 0-9 (7 frees).
