DCU Come Out on Top of the Collingwood Cup 2020 as DUAFC take home the Farquhar Cup

DCU have been crowned Collingwood Cup champions for the first time in their history

Published: February 13th, 2020

After three days of non-stop action at College Park, the AUL and Dalymount Park, here’s a look back on the 100th edition of the Collingwood Cup finals hosted by Trinity Sport.

Collingwood Cup Final; Wednesday, 5th February; Dalymount Park:

Dublin City University (DCU) claimed victory over University of Ulster (UU) at the final of the 100th edition of the Collingwood Cup at Dalymount Park, claiming their very first Collingwood Cup victory.
Scoreless after both normal time and extra time, it took a penalty shootout to separate them from Ulster University, as DCU were 4-1 winners on spot kicks. Dalymount Park hosted the 100th Collingwood Cup decider, which was also the Dublin college’s first-ever final appearance.
They had advanced to the decider courtesy of a 5-1 victory over 2019 runners-up University of Limerick, after their shock win over University College Dublin on Monday. After also edging UCD on penalties, their cross-city rivals did it again today at the home of Bohemians against Ulster University, who were 2-1 winners against defending champions University College Cork in their semi-final battle.
David Mugalu, Tristan Noack-Hofmann and Sean McCarthy were all on target for DCU in the decider shootout, but it was star striker Jack O’Connor who struck the decisive blow and sealed the title for Declan Roche’s side.

Farquhar Cup Final: Wednesday, 5th February; College Park:

Dublin University Association Football Club (DUAFC) claimed their first silverware of the season with a win over National University of Maynooth at College Park to win the Farquhar Cup. DUAFC looked set to take the win in normal time with a 3 – 1 lead coming into the second half however NUIM forced the match to penalties with a score in the 89th minute after a defensive mix up that allowed NUIM’s Cillian Duffy to get the equaliser.
The penalty shootout was a dramatic affair with the score tied at 7-7, DUAFC’s goalkeeper Dan Grace managed to save a penalty, leaving Stephan Duran with it all to do. He stroked home confidently, clinching the Farquhar Cup for the hosts.
