Saturday: Loreto 2 (Nikki Keegan, Cathy McKean) Glenanne 0
Loreto move to within a point of Railway to up the ante on the long-time league leaders going into the league’s closing stages. They did so with a hard-won three points against Glenanne at Beaufort with Nikki Keegan and Cathy McKean on target.
Old Alex 2 (Aoife Budd, Leanne Ryan) Bray 1 (Linda O’Neill)
Alex move right back into the frame for the IHL places, especially with next week’s game at UCD and a battle with Pembroke to come on the last day of the season, as they beat Bray at Milltown.
Former international Linda O’Neill was on target for the Garden County side but goals from Aoife Budd and Leanne Ryan meant the points stayed on home turf.
Sunday: Hermes 7 (Anna O’Flanagan 2, Christine Quinlan, Jenny Burke, Sinead McDonnell, Aoife Harte, Shelley Sloan) Glenanne 0
Hermes completed a great week as they added a comfortable win over Glenanne to the Jacqui Potter Cup, lashing seven past Glenanne. They built up a 4-0 half-time lead, in spite of missing the St Andrew’s trio of Chloe Watkins, Niamh Atcheler and Gillian Pinder while Aoife McCarthy was also an absentee.
Anna O’Flanagan netted twice in the first half while Sinead McDonnell scored a stroke in the second half.
