ATU Sligo’s run in this year’s Sigerson Cup came to an end in county Laois on Tuesday night as a strong second-half performance saw Munster Technological University (MTU) Cork win their round 3 encounter on a final scoreline of 3-12 to 1-7.
The teams were level at half time (2-4 to 1-7) but Sligo were only able to register three points in the second half-hour as Cork found their opponents net on two occasions to run out convincing winners.
There were better fortunes for ATU’s camogie team who enjoyed a comprehensive 5-12 to 1-8 victory over Marino Institute (Dublin) to qualify for the semi-finals of their championship with one group game to spare.
