Alex move into a strong position for the IHL placings with a second win in three days to move them into fourth spot. They benefit majorly from points on the board as the sides in pursuit, though they have games in hand, must all face each other in the end of season shoot-out.
Alex won by virtue of Leanne Ryan (pictured) and Aoife Budd's goals inside the first quarter, two well-taken goals from play. In an open encounter, both sides had plenty of chances to score but it was Alex who remained solid at the back to take the points.
For Trinity, they face their season-defining match with Corinthian on Saturday.
