Murphy claims Belgian national title

Former Trinity, Old Alex and Galway star Ciara Murphy (pictured on far right) added a Belgian national title to her list of achievements as her club, La Gantoise, claimed the Selexion Hockey League - Dames Ere Afdeling (Premier league).

Her side finished the regular season in first position and used their first seeding to beat fourth seeds Wellington in the semi-final, drawing 1-1 and winning 3-2 in a two-legged affair to reach the final.

They followed up with an impressive 4-2 victory over Uccle, recovering from an early one goal deficit and 2-2 half-time scoreline (see video highlights below). And the final victory - in a potentially three-legged affair - was secured with a 2-0 win in the second leg to give Gantoise an unassailable lead, needing no recourse for a deciding third match.
