Neville Cup: UCD 5 Naas 1

UCD advanced to the Neville Cup second round, thanks to an impressive second half against Naas, winning in the end 5-1.

Robbie McFarlane scored a hat-trick, netting a penalty stroke, a drag-flick and a stylish deflection with Paddy O'Connor and Tadgh Walsh-Peelo getting the other goals.

UCD opened the scoing in the 10th minute and had much of the earl possession but veteran Peter Young levelled with a sublime lob over Stephen O'Keefe from the top of the D to ensure the sides went into the break at 1-1.

Naas rattled the students a little bit before UCD tunred on a bit of style and their superior pace and fitness won the game.
