Two goals in each half announced Hermes intentions in the title chase. They remain the only unbeaten side apart from leaders Pembroke and are probably the least affected team by the loss of international players. The difference between the sides was their close finishing, taking their half-chances. They are four points off the pace
Pembroke took advantage of Loreto’s loss to move four points clear of the chasing trio. They remain unbeaten with hopes they can complete a men’s and women’s division 1 double. Alex’s difficult season continued as they lost to Corinthian while Railway keep in the title hunt with their 2-0 win over Three Rock.
The frost got the better of Trinity’s early morning encounter with Genesis.
Loreto 0 Hermes 4, Pembroke 3 UCD 1, Old Alex 2 Corinthian 4, Railway 2 TRL 0
Jacqui Potter Cup:
Hermes strong weekend continued as Jenny Burke’s double sank Railway Union 2-0. They will now face a familiar foe – Loreto in two weekend’s time after they overcame table-toppers Pembroke after extra-time.
There will be an unfamiliar name in the final, though, as Trinity beat Glenanne and Railway 2nds got past Loreto 2nds
