Evan Weir (UCD) scores.
Still very little quality in this half with the ball being lumped in the air at times. So apologies for the lack of major updates.
Ubaezuonu just whipped the ball over the bar fromt he left flank.
Johnny Glynn, just having a conversation with the fourth official receives a yellow card from the referee.
The heavens have opened here in Galway (no surprise there) it's pouring down. COnditions will be much tougher for the two sides.
Galway coming back into this in terms of posession and looking calmer. No clear chances recently however for either side.

Galway haven't come out for this half so far, UCD look far sharper in the opening of this second period.
Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a free-kick.Doyle finds COllins inside the box but the defender's header inches just over the bar.
Great save by Horgan as the second half is back in play. Liam Kerrigan with a screamer from nothing outside the box but Horgan got a full stretch save to keep it from the bottom corner.
Half time in all the games across the FIrst Division right now, and as it stands Galway have moved into the top five and will make the playoffs depending on what happens in the second half.
Timmy Molloy (in) - Jack Lynch (out) (Galway United). Lynch goes off injured with Sam Warde taking his place at right back and Molloy going into the centre of the park.
Stephen Christopher (Galway United) scores.One of the scrappiest goals of the season but they all count. The goal came from a good delivery by Shane DUggan from a corner. UCD failed to clear the ball with shot after shot being hammered at the goal by Galway before the ball finally fell to Stephen Christopher who just managed to find the net through the crowded box.
UCD taking charge just now, Yoyo Mahdy dictating the play just outside of the Galway box for the last few minutes.
Save from Kevin Horgan just now. Yoyo Mahdy threaded a ball through to COlm Whelan in the Galway box allowing the forward to break away from the defence. He got played into a hole and his shot was straight at the goalkeeper.
Stephen Christopher (Galway United) takes a corner-kick. That ball nearly curled in at the front post but Healy managed to get his hands to it. The goalkeeper dropped the ball but none of the Galway attackers could get a foot on the end of the loose ball to tap it in.
The game is primarily taking place in UCD's half so far. UCD making a few breaks away but no clear cut chances for The Students thus far.
Shane Duggan (Galway United) takes a free-kick. The ball failed to clear the defensive line and UCD come away with possession.
For anyone unable to stream United are playing into the carpark end of the ground, with UCD facing the old clubhouse end of Eamonn Deacy Park.
Stephen Christopher (Galway United) takes a corner-kick. A fourth corner for the home side after great play between Christopher and Doherty on the left wing but it comes to nothing.
Very close after a scramble in the box from the corner. Mikey Place got the last bite of the cherry and the ball looked destined for the bottom corner but Paul Doyle deflected the ball behind.
Nugent gets up to meet the ball from Christopher but his glanced header flashes wide of the post.
Rush of blood to the head of Healy as he comes out of the box and loses the ball. He takes Stephen Christopher to the ground and gives away the foul to avoid danger.
Weir smashed the ball over the bar, no challenge for Horgan. Nugen is back on the pitch after receiving treatment.
It looks like Nugent down getting treatment after the coming together in front of the old stand.
UCD with a shout for a penalty here but it looks like a foul has been given away on the edge of the Galway box.
Danger for UCD as Shane Doherty puts the ball across the box. The clearance makes it only as far as Sam Warde who was inside the box but the midfielder couldn't react quickly enough and the shot is blocked down
Luke Boore (UCD) is booked.Poor challenge by Boore as he clatters Place instead of going for the ball.
Andy Myler has made two changes to the side that beat Cabinteely earlier this month, Jack Keaney is absnet due to suspension, with Michael Gallagher also missing out. Paul Doyle and Eoin Farrell come into the side.
Just ten minutes from kick-off here in Galway. John Caulfield has made two changes to the side that beat Bray Wanderers on Saturday. Enda Curran is out injured while Timmy Molloy drops to the bench. Wilson Waweru comes in as does Stephen Christopher, who returns from suspension.
