Live Updates for UCD -v- Athlone Town

90' + 4'

FULL TIME!

The game has ended between UCD and Athlone Town.

UCD turn in a superb performance to dismantle Athlone Town by six goals to nil on a fine summer’s evening at the UCD Bowl.

A hat-trick from Colm Whelan and goals from Liam Kerrigan and Adam Lennon put the gloss on an emphatic Students win. 

That's me over and out, but my report should be with you shortly... 

 

90' + 1'

We will have three minutes of added time...

90'

Heading into the final stages of the game now as David Dunne gets ready to tell us how much injury time we have. The fallout of this Athlone Town performance may go further than tonight...

GOAL!

Colm Whelan (UCD) scores.

WHELAN HAS HIS HAT-TRICK! 

Whelan prods home after an Adam Lennon header goes wide from a Liam Kerrigan cross into the box. This has been comical defensively from Athlone Town...

Paul Doyle (UCD) is booked.

Substitution

Oisin Duffy  - Jamie Hollywood  (Athlone Town).

68'

ASSIST!

Liam Kerrigan (UCD) provides the assist.

68'

GOAL!

Adam Lennon (UCD) scores.

This is bad for Athlone Town. Very bad. Liam Kerrigan crosses into the penalty finding Adam Lennon free at the back post, with the former Athlone forward heading home at the back post to put the nail in Athlone's coffin tonight. This is a shocking night at the office for Athlone regardless of how how good UCD have been... 

66'

Substitution

Adam Lennon  - Mark Dignam  (UCD).

64'

ASSIST!

Liam Kerrigan (UCD) provides the assist.

64'

GOAL!

Colm Whelan (UCD) scores.

I said it might get ugly, and it is going that way now. Liam Kerrigan and Colm Whelan break after dispossessing Adam Wixted, before going on a blitzing counter, with Whelan on hand to make no mistake and make it 4-0. That is that. 

63'

Corner Kick

Derek Daly (Athlone Town) takes a corner-kick.

62'

Substitution

Tunmise Sobowale  - Garry Comerford  (Athlone Town).

62'

Substitution

Paul Doyle forces a smart block from an Athlone Town defender after some more sloppy defending from Athlone. They are causing their own problems here this evening..

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

58'

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

55'

ASSIST!

Paul Doyle (UCD) provides the assist.

55'

GOAL!

Liam Kerrigan (UCD) scores.

KERRIGAN MAKES IT THREE! 

Paul Doyle feeds in Liam Kerrigan who slots home past Michael Schlingermann in the Athlone Town goal. I don't know what to say about that defending, but to say it was non-existent is kind. They looked like they gave up there and waited for the offside. 3-0. And this could get ugly...

54'

UCD are continuing to press and probe against an Athlone Town side who are severely lacking ideas at the top end of the pitch. The Students are looking in ominous form this evening...

50'

Athlone Town are playing right into the hands of UCD with some really sloppy play. Colm Whelan is the next to go close, but he can't convert. You would have put your house on that to go in...

47'

Close for UCD as Paul Doyle and Jack Keaney both go close in quick succession, but neither can trouble Michael Schlingermann in the Athlone Town goal. Athlone have made two changes at the break with Conor Barry and Glen McAuley both coming off. Something had to give...

46'

SECOND HALF

The second half between UCD and Athlone Town has started.

46'

Substitution

Shane Barnes  - Glen McAuley  (Athlone Town).

46'

Substitution

Kurtis Byrne  - Conor Barry  (Athlone Town).

45'

HALF TIME

It is half-time between UCD and Athlone Town.

44'

ASSIST!

Paul Doyle (UCD) provides the assist.

44'

GOAL!

Colm Whelan (UCD) scores.

UCD MAKE IT TWO!

Colm Whelan turns Kilian Cantwell on the edge of the penalty area after a great run and through ball from Paul Doyle. That was a superb finish from Whelan who scores his 14th of the season! 2-0. That might be that...

43'

Corner Kick

Derek Daly (Athlone Town) takes a corner-kick.

40'

Glen McAuley shoots wide after a poor headed clearance from Harvey O'Brien. That has been the story of Athlone's half to be fair. And as I type, UCD are nearly in again through Mark Dignam, but he can't get a good enough touch on Liam Kerrigan's pass. A second for UCD would kill this...

36'

Free Kick

Evan Weir (UCD) takes a free-kick.

Weir takes a good free-kick but Schlingermann is equal to it. Weir probably needed to put that further towards the corner to score there...

34'

Good save from Schlingermann who makes amends for his earlier mistake as he denies an impromptu effort on goal from Colm Whelan after a Liam Kerrigan header across the six-yard box. This is all UCD.  

33'

Free Kick

James Doona (Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

32'

Athlone Town are really starting to struggle in the middle of the park now as Jack Keaney and Paul Doyle link up well. They need to stem the tide here quite quickly...

30'

UCD are really starting to up the ante after taking a 24th minute lead through what now looks like a Michael Schlingermann own-goal. Liam Kerrigan is also really growing into this game...

28'

Free Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a free-kick.

24'

OWN GOAL!

Mícheál Schlingermann (Athlone Town) scores an own-goal!

24'

ASSIST!

Paul Doyle (UCD) provides the assist.

24'

GOAL!

Sam Todd (UCD) scores.

UCD TAKE THE LEAD! 

Sam Todd takes the credit for the goal as hois header is fumbled by Michael Schlingermann on the line from a Paul Doyle cross. Maybe it was an own-goal, but it matters little to the Students who are 1-0 up! 

23'

Corner Kick

Paul Doyle (UCD) takes a corner-kick.

21'

OFF THE POST! 

Against the run of play, Athlone Town nearly take the lead through James Doona. Doona walks around the UCD defence before curling an effort that comes off the post. That had Lorcan Helay in real trouble there...

20'

Paul Doyle is getting more and more space in front of the Athlone Town defence, vut he is unable to trouble Schlingermann enough, skewing his long-range effort wide..

19'

Free Kick

Garry Comerford (Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

17'

Free Kick

Glen McAuley (Athlone Town) takes a free-kick.

It was Derek Daly with the effort, in fact. But it curls over the bar. Still 0-0. 

15'

UCD are starting to get more and more on top this evening, with Paul Doyle starting to exert some influence on the play. Athlone are playing themselves into trouble more often than not, however. 

13'

In other First Division news tonight, Galway United have taken a 1-0 lead against Shelbourne. One to keep an eye on there...

9'

Good chance for Athlone Town from a James Doona cross, but Sam Todd is on hand to clear the danger just as Glen McAuley was ready to shoot. Colm WHelan goes in hard on Schlingermann but referee Alan Carey gives no card. The game is starting to bubble up nicely here...

8'

Corner Kick

Jamie Hollywood (Athlone Town) takes a corner-kick.

6'

Of course, Athlone Town boss Adrian Carberry is suspended tonight as he serves the second game of a three game ban. Paul Doyle shoots wide as I type. Schlingermann was never in trouble there...

4'

Quiet enough start to proceedings here despite UCD's early chance from Colm Whelan. Michael Schlingermann is doing his best to lead from the back tonight. He is very vocal thus far...

1'

Good start from the Students who look to take a quickfire lead through the head of Colm Whelan, but Whelan is unable to add to his tally from an Evan Osam cross. 

1'

GAME ON!

The game between UCD and Athlone Town has kicked off.

0'

A very small crowd in attendance at the UCD Bowl this evening, no more than 50 supporters are in the ground so far. Feels like there were more here during last season's game during heavy Covid-19 restrictions... 

0'

Teams are in here at the UCD Bowl - and there are two changes for the Students. Sean Brennan and Dara Keane drop out for Colm Whelan and Adam Verdon. Athlone also make changes from last week as Derek Daly and Adam Wixted come in for Daniel McKenna and Tumnise Sobowale... 

0'

UCD are unbeaten against Athlone Town since 2015, a run stretching as many as 19 games as the Co. Westmeath side have struggled against their First Division rivals.

The Students have only conceded once in their last 270 minutes of competitive football. Cian Murphy is the sole player to break through UCD’s back four since they switched to that back four system.

Athlone Town have only won twice in their last 14 games, losing eight of those games and drawing four.
