RCSI staged a strong finish to take GFP Donaghy Cup honours, with a 4-8 to 1-8 win over DCU’s sixth team at ITB.
Trailing by 1-7 to 1-2 after 25 minutes, it looked like the Dublin City centre medical college were finding it tough, but they held their opponents to just one further point over the remainder of the hour.
Cork duo DCU’s Jennifer Baker and RCSI’s Julieanne Hayes netted the first half goals, with the gap cut to four points at the break.
DCU’s lone second half point came from Emma Kevany seven minutes after the restart, but at this stage RCSI had bagged two more goals from Laura Mulroony and Emer McHugh.
RCSI continued to cause DCU problems with Shannon Fullam and Hayes in fine scoring form and GFP Player of the Match Roisin Baker excellent in defence, on the way to a nine-point win.
