WIT V MARY IMMACULATE COLLEGEMary Immaculate College 1-17
Waterford IT 1-15
Waterford Institute of Technology’s interest in this year’s Fitzgibbon Cup ended at the semi final stages of the competition last Friday when they went under to Mary Immaculate College (Limerick) who had two points to spare at Carnmore. Despite their impressive recent history on the competition, WIT have yet to record a single victory when crossing the Shannon for a finals weekend. And that statistic will remain in place for just a little longer in the wake of last week’s reversal.
WIT began the game brightly and there was just four minutes on the clock when they won a penalty. Kilkenny reserve senior hurling goalkeeper Eoin Murphy, who has been a model of consistent for WIT in the half-forward line was given responsibility for striking from twenty metres but he saw his effort saved.
Had a green flag been raised there and then, you can’t help but feel that victory would have gone to his side.
