Pe­ga­sus and Har­lequins go top as UCD are held

The Irish Times - Monday - Sport - - Sports - MARY HAN­NI­GAN

Goal sprees from Pe­ga­sus and Cork Har­lequins, who scored 11 be­tween them over the week­end, lifted both sides to the top of the Hockey League ta­ble, while lead­ers UCD slip­ping to third af­ter be­ing held to a score­less draw by Pem­broke Wan­der­ers.

Pe­ga­sus had a sur­pris­ingly com­fort­able 6-0 vic­tory at Queens on Sun­day over a pre­vi­ously un­beaten Loreto side. There were three first-half goals from Lucy McKee, Alex Speers and Taite Do­herty, fol­lowed by an­other three in the fi­nal quar­ter from Michelle Har­vey, Han­nah Grieve and Rachael McMil­lan.

Cork Har­lequins also had an em­phatic win over Le­in­ster op­po­si­tion, a Naomi Car­roll hat-trick help­ing them on their way to a 5-0 lead over Trin­ity on Satur­day be­fore Sally Camp­bell got a late con­so­la­tion score for the hosts.

Pem­broke’s Iseult Cam­bay was the source of much of UCD’s frus­tra­tions at Ser­pen­tine Av­enue on Sun­day, the young goal­keeper re­peat­edly thwart­ing the stu­dents with a string of saves, but it was Pem­broke who al­most nicked the win­ner right at the death when Erika Hink­son’s shot was de­flected just wide.

Ards, mean­while, suf­fered their first de­feat of the sea­son at the hands of Belfast Har­lequins, Jenny MacAu­ley and Lucy Ged­des get­ting their goals in a 2-1 win.

Rail­way Union picked up their first vic­tory af­ter three draws, Kate Lloyd help­ing her­self to a hat-trick in a 6-0 ham­mer­ing of Monkstown.
