UCD followed up their fine victory over Bohemians with an equally admirable 3-0 defeat of Dundalk for their ninth win of the season.
UCD were the better side from the off,but for all the quality of their passing, though, it was a set-piece that eventually put them in front. Dean Marshall hit a corner for David O'Connor to head home.
And moments later, UCD produced the sort of move they had been threatening.
In a sweeping counter-attack, young right-back Hugh Douglas sent over a glorious pass for the on-rushing O'Connor to rifle to the net. On 77 minutes, substitute Chris Lyons netted UCD's third.
