Men’s Division Two
Dublin University 1 Weston 3 (Adam Hanna, Daryl Carey, Alan Browne)
Trinity could not consolidate second place, hampered too by Steven Nolan’s broken thumb, and now look destined to miss out on the playoff position after Weston got their own push for that place back into gear. Adam Hanna provided a solid finish to Mark Benzies through ball 20 minutes in for the only goal of the first half. Daryl Carey extended the advantage in the second period after Enda Tucker took a quick free and the game was beyond doubt two minutes later when Carey was taken down and Alan Browne converted the penalty stroke. Trinity got one back in the 51st minute and drew a couple of decent saves from Vinny Byrne but too late to close the gap.
Suttonians 5 (Reuben Holden, Conor Gillett, Simon Walsh, Shane Diviney, Richie Wormald) Portrane 0
Suttonians took advantage of Trinity’s defeat late on Monday evening as they got the better of a Portrane side who struggled without the services of Ralph Billings and Chris Neville. Reuben Holden finished the first from a corner which found its way back to the injector and Conor Gillett made it two when he spun at the top of the circle and striking into the corner. Simon Walsh added the third after Mick McGuinness intercepted a pass, drew the goalkeeper and squared. Shane Diviney applied the finishing touches to a short corner which was saved off the line while Richie Wormald completed the win. Should they negotiate their remaining two games against Mullingar, a play-off at least will be Suttonians.

Divo is back with a bang after playing a big part in Russia’s qualifying campaign. He came up with the idea “size of yourself saturdays” to motivate the Russian players during their rigorous fitness sessions. Divo is still the “size of yourself saturday” champion and still has the biggest bomb
