Women's ESB Senior Cup Round Up

Leinster's two form sides continued their winning ways, Railway Union and Pembroke beating North Down (4-2) and Bandon (1-0) respectively to join Old Alex, Hermes and Loreto in the ESB senior cup thrid round. Student sides UCD and Trinity, however, fared less well with the Belfield side going down 1-0 Victorians whilst Trinity lost on golden goal to Cork side Ashton.

Top 3 seeds, Pegasus, Hermes and Loreto have all been handed tricky ties in the draw: Hermes travel to Ards, Loreto to league-leaders Pembroke and Pegasus across town to Belfast Harlequins. The most interesting tie, though, pits two of Ireland's up and coming club sides as Armagh visit Park Avenue while Cork C of I ladies and men will both travel to Lisnagarvey.

Results: Trinity 2 (L Watson, M Horan) Ashton 3 (C Murphy, J Casey, M Ryan) on golden goal; North Down 2 (L Stevenson, R Bill) Railway Union 4 (S Dooley, K Dillon, E Smith); Armagh 5 (S Holdsworth, E Thornbury, A Stewart, L Colvin, R Mulligan) Knock 0; Belfast Harlequins 3 (R Miller, A Gordon, S Wilkinson) UL 0; Ards 2 (C Watson, J McGill) Ballyclare 1 (S Bell); Pembroke 1 (S Clarke) Bandon 0; Victorians 1 (H McMillan) UCD 0; Lisnagarvey 1 (D Hood) Omagh 0

Draw for Round 3:
Railway vs Armagh; Randalstown vs Ashton; Cork Harlequins vs Ballymoney; Lisnagarvey vs Cork C of I; Victorians vs Old Alex; Pembroke vs Loreto; Ards vs Hermes; Belfast Harlequins vs Pegasus
