Genesis remain the only Leinster side left in either the men's or women's Irish Hockey Trophys as they advanced thanks to a win at Ballymena on penalty strokes. The Dun Laoghaire side struck the post once in normal time but were thankful to Mount Anville schoolgirl Becky Vaughan in nets who pulled off a series of excellent saves.
But the Limerick girls' were not to be denied and Pratt scored an absolute peach on her reverse after a mazy run to win the game in extra-time. Elsewhere, the Ulster Elks and Cookstown join Genesis and Catholic Institute in the quarter-finals.
In the Irish Hockey Challenge, Phoenix Park's opening game against Grosvenor was abandoned but Naas were 2-1 victors in Newry. In the men's competition, St James Gate and Mullingar - after a strokes win, following a 3-3 cracker - made it through to round two.
