Loreto Beaufort picked up the big win of the first week of the Leinster Schoolgirls Senior Premier League, seeing off last year’s cup finalists Rathdown 3-0.
Sarah Nagle bagged a double while Laura Nagle was also on the mark. It means they head up Section B at this early stage following Loreto Foxrock’s scoreless draw with High School.
Alexandra College were the sole winners on day one of Section A as Freya McDermott bagged the only goal in a 1-0 win against Muckross Park. She took a quick free from the dotted line, drove left and smashed home on the backhand side.
The Milltown school bring an almost totally new look side with ten players graduating a year ago, leaving coach Miles Warren happy with the start to the season.
Mount Anville tied 2-2 with Loreto Dalkey, Jenny McCarthy getting two for the former side, to pick up two points a piece for the score-draw.
