The final of the consolation competition for defeated quarter-finalists in the Collingwood Cup ended at 3-3 after Maynooth staged a late comeback to force an equaliser in time added on.

Two goals from James Woods had turned the game in favour of Trinity after an earlier Dylan Connolly goal cancelled out Callum Worfield’s opener for Maynooth.

Raz Tajudeen pulled a goal back on the hour to give Maynooth some hope and a late Cillian Duffy equaliser levelled matters up and sent the tie into a penalty shoot out.

After eleven attempts each full back Stephen Doran finally struck home the winning spot kick for an 8-7 win much to the delight of the Trinity fans.
