Though Clontarf have moved well clear, the race for the playoff spot has hit top gear with Avoca adding an interesting twist with their 3-2 win over current second-placers Skerries. A scoreless first half was contrasted by an end-to-end second.
Peter Haughton set the ball rolling from a broken down corner before Stephen Brownlow added a great team goal - starting the move himself before Will Aylmer and Ezra Handelman combined to give Brownlow the opportunity to score.
Alan Early pulled one back from a straight corner strike and Ali McMahon capitalised on a defensive error to seemingly salvage a point with three minutes to go but Avoca won a last minute corner which Enda Gallanagh scrambled home for a late win.
Naas 0 Clontarf 7 (Rob Abbott 3, Tom Noonan 2, Gareth Borland, Ciaran McNamara)
Clontarf took full control of the division with a 7-0 win over Naas, going six points clear of the table in the process. Ciaran McNamara opened the scoring before two Tom Noonan strikes made it 3-0 by half-time.
Naas had a couple of chances to get back into the game but a second-half Rob Abbott hat-trick and one from Gareth Borland ensured a comfortable scoreline.
Suttonians 8 (Vikram Singh 3, A Tyrell 2, Ed Hipwell, Darrell Reamsbottom, Richie Wormold) Navan 1 (Alex McKeever)
Suttonians have moved right back into the mix for the playoff position with their third win on the spin - netting 25 goals in the process. Vikram Singh (pictured in recent action against Trinity - courtesy of Jessica Packenham-Money) continued his good recent form with another hat-trick with the rest of the goals shared around the team.
Dublin University 4 (Barry Glavey 2, Andrew Gray, Ben Hewitt) Weston 0
Trinity enjoyed a much improved day out at Santry to beat Weston 4-0, with Barry Glavey getting a double with Andy Gray and former Cliftonville-man Ben Hewitt getting the others.
