LSL Senior Division
Mark Boland equalised on the half hour mark with a low drive that flew into the bottom corner. Aidan Downes notched a debut goal with the assistance of a deflection two minutes later. Downes was excellent and he can be very pleased with his first Saints appearance. Niall O' Reilly made it 3-1 from the penalty spot after Downes was upended.
The visitors pulled a goal back on the stroke of half time. Tadgh Murphy initially kept out a powerful drive, but Boland reacted the quickest and he headed the rebound into the net. The Saints dominated for large spells of the second half without creating too many chances. UCD finished the game the stronger with Murphy and the crossbar coming to the Saints rescue. The Saints are now unbeaten in the league since the beginning of September. It is the fifth game in a row in which the Saints have scored three goals.
