Women's Division One results

Trinity 1 (Claire Hearnden) Pembroke 1 (Aoife O'Gorman)

In the 10am start, Trinity needed a last minute goal from skipper Claire Hearnden (pictured) to grab a point at Santry and denying Pembroke full points for the second time this season.

The students had slightly the better of the first half and could have gone one up but Rachel Scott was unlucky from the stroke-spot against her former club in the 15th minute. And Pembroke took advantage to take the lead when Aoife O'Gorman snapped up a corner rebound.

The second half, though, was all Pembroke but they could not pull clear despite a number of goalmouth scrambles and were stung late on. Trinity won a series of corners in the last five minutes and scored from the last of them - Maebh Horan's strike rebounding to Hearnden to score with the last touch of the game.

Corinthian 0 Railway Union 4 (Cecelia Joyce 2, Jean McDonnell, Trish O'Dwyer)
Railway need just a further eight points now after their 4-0 win over Corinthian at Whitechurch Park. All the goals came in the second half after the reds helds strong for the opening period while a series of Railway shots whizzed wide of the right post.

However, they found their scoring form after the break with Trish O'Dwyer getting her first goal for the first team while Cecelia Joyce bagged a pair.
