Club Championships: Day Two

All three Leinster sides remain with their own destiny in their hands if they are to progress to the All-Ireland Club Championships semi-finals with wins for Pembroke and Rovers while Glenanne followed up their win with a draw against Banbridge.

One of the after effects of Day One's lack of water was that Pembroke took the pitch with very little time to rest after their evening finish on Saturday, tipping off at 11am. Luckliy for the organisers, there was rain and a fire brigade on hand to make sure the pitches were playable.
Goals from Paddy Conlon and John McInroy saw the Broke past Cookstown for the second time this season, winning 2-1 with Gareth Cuddy getting on the scoresheet for the Tyrone side.

They are now in pole-position in the group on four points, tied with tomorrow's opponents Lisnagarvey. They beat C of I 2-0 thanks to Timmy Cockram and Stuart McNiece's goals. C of I prop up the group with Cookstown on one point each.

Three Rock made up for letting a lead slip as they got on the right end of a 3-2 win over Cork Harlequins, Michael Maguire, Mitch Darling and Maarten Sier scoring for Rovers with Rob Hobbs and Jason Black on target for the Munster men. Indeed, Harlequins had held a 2-1 lead with six minutes to go before Rovers rallied.

Rovers lie in second on three points, one behind the Glens who drew 1-1 with Banbridge. All four sides could still go through with Bann on two points while Harlequins are outsiders with just a point.
