Reds’ double-act run riot in Leinster Division One

Corinthian made hay as the sun shone on bank holiday weekend with both their men and women enjoying Leinster Division One victories on Saturday at Whitechurch Park.

With the rest of the provincial top tier either at the intervarsities or having a rest weekend, the reds were bolstering their hopes in the regional leagues.

For the women, they continued their perfect start to the campaign as they fought back from 1-0 down against title rivals Monkstown to win 2-1.

Town had Irish international Niamh Atcheler in their line-up for the first time following her return from New Zealand following four years in the southern hemisphere.

How much she plays this season remains up in the air but she played her part in defence as the Rathdown outfit went into half-time 1-0 up. Rachel Moore created the goal, her baseline run earning a corner which Sadbhbh Hoban-Logan struck into the backboard from the top.

In a great contest, Corinthian fought back in the second half and were level when Jess McGrane ran onto a short corner deflection on the reverse.

Caoimhe Proud-Murphy – in her first game back after injury – scored the winner following good link-up play down the right to dive and get a touch into the goal.

It was their third successive win of the campaign and moves them into a share of second spot with Glenanne, one point back from Trinity but with a game in hand.

On the men’s side, the reds had few concerns in beating an under-strength Portrane 11-1 in Division One with hat tricks from Ian Stewart, Davy Howard and Glenn Holmes.

Women’s Leinster Division One: Corinthian 2 (J McGrane, C Proud-Murphy) Monkstown 1 (S Hoban-Logan)

Men’s Leinster Division One: Corinthian 11 (I Stewart 3, D Howard 3, G Holmes 3, J Perdue 1, G Dagg 1) Portrane 1
