WIT 3-13 IT Carlow 0-9: WIT’s first defence of the Fitzgibbon Cup was a winning one as, despite being reduced to 14 men for almost the entire second-half, the holders were never seriously troubled in seeing off IT Carlow in this first round clash in bitterly cold conditions at the IT Carlow grounds last evening.
