NoteDUHAC President George Dawson donated a trophy for annual competition in the Colours Match, a trademark impressionistic sculpture of an athlete by Edward Delaney [1930-2009]. Delaney is best known for his public sculptures - the statue of Wolf Tone and the Famine Memorial at the North-Eastern corner of St. Stephen's Green in Dublin, "Adam & Eve" in Fitzgerald Park, Cork and the Thomas Davis Memorial in College Green opposite the front gate of Trinity College Dublin. An addition to the inaugural programme was the 440y hurdles. It was to prove to be an excellent ding-dong match to the finale. Early in the evening it looked as if UCD were going to avenge their defeat in the inaugural match due to the brilliant 100y and 220y sprint double by Victor Maniak (Manning), aka Wieslaw Maniak, and the 120y and 440y hurdling double by Eddie Thornton. However, clean sweeps in the 440y and 880y kept Trinity in touch. There was also a double for Trinity's decathlete, Tjerand Lunde, in High Jump and Pole Vault. In the most thrilling events of the evening, John Hickey (UCD) was pipped by inches on the line in both the mile and the 3 miles, being credited with the same times as both winners. With 10 events completed the scores were level on 55 pts. After that the initiative swung slightly in TCD's favour. However in the penultimate event Joe Enwezor (UCD) won the Long Jump by holding off the challenge of Lunde. With the 4 x 110y relay remaining, TCD led with 84 pts to UCD's 81 pts. However, UCD's ace sprinter Victor Maniak flew out of the blocks to present a decisive lead at the first change which the rest of the UCD quartet maintained to the finish line, with tremendous cheers of enthusiasm from the UCD supporters. The match was drawn on 86 pts. Each College had won eight of the 16 events. On a toss of a coin Trinity held the trophy for the first six months and UCD for the remainder of the year.
