IT was a bad night at the office for Carbery in the county senior football championship on Tuesday night as they were knocked out by UCC, 0-18 to 1-6, in Macroom.

UCC bossed this colleges/divisional section first-round game, powered by Kerry duo Paul Geaney and Conor Cox, who kicked 0-9 between them – 11 Kerry players were on the Cork college team.

UCC led 0-8 to 1-3 at the break, with Mark Sugrue scoring 1-2 in that half, while Ruairí Deane, in a welcome return following his cruciate injury, was Carbery’s best player on the night.

The second half was a one-sided affair as UCC took over, with Cox kicking three early points for the college, and Michael Walsh adding a fourth, within six minutes of the restart.

Carbery had now lost Brian O’Driscoll to a hamstring injury, while Mark Sugrue also went off injured on a bad night for Carbery football.

UCC: Paul Geaney 0-5, Conor Cox 0-4 (2f), Michael Walsh 0-3, David Harrington 0-2, John Murphy, Shaun Keane, Barry O’Sullivan and Tom Clancy 0-1 each.

Carbery: Mark Sugrue 1-2, Ruairí Deane 0-2 (1f), Ger O’Callaghan, Kevin O’Driscoll (1f) 0-1 each.
