Women’s Leinster Division One
Corinthian 0 Railway Union 5 (J O’Halloran 2, S Canning, Z Delany, K Dillon)
Railway Union moved up to third in Leinster women’s division one as they saw off against Corinthian at a rain-swept St Columba’s College on Monday evening. Following initial fears that the game might be abandoned, to the delight of both teams the umpires gave the fixture the green light.
Corinthian had the upper hand in the first five minutes, putting Railway under pressure and on the back foot. The extra surface water led to a number of unenforced errors for both sides; leading to some exciting counter attack play.
In the 20th minute, good play by Kate McKenna found Julia O’Halloran at the top left of the circle who finished at the keeper’s near post to break the deadlock.
In the second half, the game picked up where it left off, both teams exchanging attacks in what was a tightly contested affair. Railway forced a number of corners, converting one through Sarah Canning to score her first for the club and their second on the night.
Railway got the upper hand as the half progressed converting through Kate Dillon, Zara Delaney and Julia O’Halloran to leave the game at 5-0.
