Corinthian qualify for maiden IHL

Corinthian comfortably avoided the big blow out against Bandon that could have denied them an IHL place. In the end, the remote possibility eight-goal loss never looked likely from the moment Rowland Rixon-Fuller scored in the eighth minute.

A subsequent hat-trick of drag-flicks from Brian Doherty and one from Davy Carson rounded off a good weekend's work for the Whitechurch side as they added this 5-0 win over the West Cork side to their 4-2 win over Lisnagarvey on Saturday morning.

They qualify for the IHL for the first time along with Lisnagarvey who retain their place in the competition. Jason Lynch, meanwhile, was released from hospital on Sunday and was able to take his place in the stands to watch his side beat Bandon 6-0.

Wildcard standings: 1. Corinthian 6pts (+7) 2. Lisnagarvey 3pts (+5) 3. Bandon 0pts (-11)
