Corinthian 0 Old Alex 3 (Aoife Budd 2, Laura McCoy)
Old Alex move back into the top four in division one with a 3-0 win last night over Corinthian as both sides completed their pre-Christmas programme at Whitechurch Park.
Alex won thanks to goals from former Trinity players Aoife Budd (pictured right) and Laura McCoy and will have the benefit from being able to focus on the league after the short Winter break as they receive a bye to round two of the ISC and have no IHL concerns this time around.
Corinthian, meanwhile, remain in the midst of a relegation scrap with Trinity and Bray.
Hermes 1 (Linda Caulfield) Bray 0
Linda Caulfield’s 20th minute goal was enough to seal all three points as Hermes were well-tested by Bray. She latched onto a rebound from Jenny Burke’s initial strike from a corner for the only goal.
Hermes were on top for long periods but good goalkeeping by Mary Goode combined with poor finishing kept the score down. Bray, however, almost capitalised from their only corner, the ball deflecting onto the roof of the net. Linda O’Neill, Elaine Bromell and Catherine Murray were to the fore.
For Hermes Niamh Atcheler and Jenny Kinch were solid in defence whilst the midfield of Caulfield, Harte and Watkins created a number openings for the forwards.
