Ul­ster’s finest suf­fer a day of mixed for­tunes

Sunday Independent (Ireland) - Sport - - RUGBY -

THE top Ul­ster sides had var­ied for­tunes in Dublin as Lis­na­gar­vey ex­tended their 100 per cent record while Ban­bridge crashed to their first de­feat of the EY Hockey League cam­paign.

Goal­keeper James Mil­lken was the key player for Gar­vey in their hard fought 2-1 vic­tory at Grange Road over Three Rock Rovers, the goals com­ing for the win­ners from Daniel Buser and Daniel Nel­son.

The north­ern­ers were one up in­side 75 se­conds of tip-off thanks to cap­tain Buser but Rovers equalised through vet­eran Pe­ter Blak­eney be­fore the break only for Nel­son to snatch the win­ner, hit on a re-bound.

Ban­bridge en­joyed no such luck in Dun Laoghaire against Monkstown, de­spite lead­ing briefly thanks to Zach McClel­land, with Town bounc­ing back through Guy Sar­ratt, Karl Smyth and Davy Cas­ron.

Gle­nanne re­main top of the ta­ble thanks to hav­ing played one more game than Lis­na­garey, though the team from Tal­laght dropped their first points of the sea­son in a 3-3 draw away to Pem­broke Wan­der­ers.
