Women's Division One: Round-Up

Trinity 3 (Rachel Scott 3) Glenanne 1 (Nicci Daly)

It was lucky number 13 for Trinity as they finally picked up their first win of the season thanks to a Rachel Scott treble against Glenanne. Her first came from a penalty corner in the 10th minute when she, in the pusher-out position, swept in.

Nicci Daly got a deflection to get the Glens back on terms six minutes later but Scott was the beneficiary of Maebh Horan's driving run. The latter slipped the ball square and the former-Pembroke woman placed the ball into the bottom-left corner.

And the game was sealed five minutes after the break as an intricate corner move eventually found its way to Scott via Katie O'Byrne and Claire Hearnden to make it 3-1.

Glenanne applied plenty of pressure in the final half-hour but could not force the goals to close the gap. It means the students are off the bottom for the first time this season.

Corinthian 0 Bray 3 (J O'Byrne, Jennifer O'Neill, K Lindsay)
Bray move four points clear of the drop-zone with their second league away win of the season and consign the reds to bottom place with four IHL teams to play in the next four series of fixtures. It means their date with Trinity on March 28 could prove a vital fixture.
