Watch: UCC Score Two Goals In The Space Of Ten Seconds In Sigerson Cup

St Mary’s Belfast are through to the final of the Sigerson Cup, after a one-point victory over University College Cork this afternoon, on a scoreline of 2-7 to 2-6. The Corkonians’ dream of a Sigerson/Fitzgibbon double was dashed, but they put in an almighty effort nonetheless.

The Skull and Crossbones got off to the perfect start, as they opened the game with goals from Ian Maguire and Cathal Bambury.

The most remarkable aspect of this was that the two strikes came within ten seconds of each other, as the umpire barely had time to put away the green flag before raising it once again.

This gave UCC, coached by Billy Morgan and Tomás Ó Sé, a comfortable six-point lead in the opening minutes, but St Mary’s reeled them in and won a classic.

In the other semi-final, University College Dublin face the University of Limerick.
