The final throes of Leinster women’s division one look set to be played out this evening as UCD face varsity rivals Trinity (7.15pm, Belfield), already consigned to tenth place, with a win confirming back to back titles.
Pembroke’s crucial 1-0 win over Trinity confirmed who the playoff side will be at the bottom with Corinthian, North Kildare, Glenanne and Pembroke all safe now; UCD on the brink as Railway and Loreto cling on to outside chance
UCD picked up what could be their most valuable point of the season, drawing 1-1 with Hermes to move a point clear at the top of the women’s Leinster division one table; Railway lost to Loreto while North Kildare picked up a huge three points against Trinity
It remains pretty much as you were at the top of women’s Leinster division one as Railway Union, Hermes, UCD and Old Alex all won while Loreto’s tie with Corinthian was snowed off; Railway and Loreto to meet in Jacqui Potter Cup final
Railway Union’s stunning fightback from 4-0 down keeps the Leinster women’s division one title race right in the balance, dead level with four games remaining; Loreto closed the gap on them while Hermes leap-frogged Old Alex
Should UCD go on to retain their Leinster league title, Jeamie Deacon’s solo goal could prove invaluable as they saw off Loreto 1-0; Glenanne jumped off the bottom rung while Hermes nicked the points against Corinthiah; Railway and Old Alex won too
