Genesis and Corinthian swap places on closing day

On a low-key end to the season, Genesis were the one side to make a move on the final day of the campaign as their 4-1 win saw them jump ahead of Corinthian in the rankings into sixth place.

Rathgar scored for the first time in nine games, ending a wait for a league goal that dates back to December 10 as they netted twice against Our Lady’s. Despite goals from Sarah Fox and Ruby Keating, Gar were unable to snag their first win of the campaign as Our Lady’s won out 3-2.

Muckross on the attack against Glenanne

Rathgar will now meet Clontarf on Saturday in Sutton Park in a promotion/relegation playoff. Tarf were the best placed finishers from Leinster Division 2 and so could replace the High School-based side in the division with a win once all the ups and downs from the EY promotion/relegation issues are confirmed.

Muckross finished off their preparations for the EY Hockey League promotion playoffs with a 3-0 win over Glenanne, Sarah Cooney, Natasha Twomey and Lisa Mulcahy on the mark.

With 14 goals, Muckross’s Sophie Barnwell ended up as the league’s top scorer, earning a call into the Irish Under-21 training squad for her efforts.

Old Alex, meanwhile, drew 1-1 with North Kildare as they finish third and fifth place, respectively. Trinity completed the season unbeaten with a 2-1 away win over Avoca for whom Caitlin Sherin scored her first goal of the campaign.

Alex – and Muckross – now prepare for the playoffs which start on the weekend of April 8 and 9 along with Cork C of I from Munster and Ballymoney and Queen’s from Ulster.

They will battle it out to earn a place in the final provincial playoffs weekend with Trinity, Lurgan, UCC and the Connacht champions.
