DkIT Win Battle of the Elements to Make Trench Cup Final

17 February 2022

DkIT’s GAA Men’s team reached the final of the Trench Cup, as they won their semi-final against TUS Midwest in a stormy Limerick.


With Storm Dudley howling at the back of DkIT in the first half, the DkIT men expected to put up a big score considering the chaotic weather, but DkIT huffed and puffed through a frustrating 30 minutes of football with DkIT only 4 points the better side after goal mouth scrambles and a defiant TUS Midwest rear guard making life difficult. A monumental team effort saw DkIT keep a clean sheet after multiple saves including a penalty save from Clan Na Gael player Cillian Rice. Combine that with text book 1 v 1 defending from Gerry Browne and Shane Hanratty, DkIT where now in a position to claim a win but they were faced with the task of somehow finding a way to get the ball over the crossbar. Mattock Rangers Sharp Shooter Cathal Fleming . scored with only seconds remaining on the clock after a pass from Niall and dragged DkIT into the Trench Cup Final.

Final score was TUS Midwest 0-7 DkIT 0-8

The DkIT boys will now face GMIT in the final; date tbc.
