Sporting Fingal 1 UCD 2

Evan McMillan hit a late winner to give UCD an unlikely win at Morton stadium to prevent Sporting going top of the table.

Sporting started superbly and deservedly got their noses in front on four minutes when Eamon Zayed worked a one-two with Conan Byrne to fire past Billy Brennan.

But College responded well and central defender Andy Boyle was left unattended from Paul Corry's free-kick to head them level on 18 minutes.

Boyle would slice a Ronan Finn cross off his own post on 72 minutes before skipper McMillan provided the late twist when heading home Chris Mulhall's 87th minute corner to give UCD all three points.
