Mt Sackville, Wesley and Andrews lead the way

Section A
Our Lady’ Terenure 1-5 Wesley College
Wesley College made it two wins from two with a comfortable victory over Our Lady’s, Terenure. A single goal from Hannah Honner separated the sides at the break. Wesley extended their lead courtesy of strikes from Anna-May Whelan and Sarah Robinson. Terenure managed to pull a goal back, but Wesley made sure with further goals from Amy Stewart and Sarah Robinson.
St Andrew’s College 6-0 Mount Temple
St Andrews, as expected, eased past Mount Temple to join Wesley at the summit of Section A. Goals from Chloe Watkins, Gillian Pinder, Harriet Kinsman, Sophie Marshall, and two from Joanne Lavery made the scorline emphatic but Mount Temple were resilient all the way through, particularly in the first period.
Muckross Park 1-3 Mount Sackville
Mount Sackville became the third side to maintain a 100pc record in Section A. Emma Sweeney drove through midfield to set up the opening goal for Siun McLoughlin in the first half – a half which Muckross shaded on short corners three to one. In the second half, Orla Fox was alert to set up a goal for Garrihy, who netted her second when she finished off a counter attack. Muckross got a consolation with five minutes to go, but the result was never in doubt.
Rathdown 0-2 Loreto, Bray
Bray took advantage of a one on one in the first half, and finished off from a cross in the second period to take the spoils against Rathdown.
Section B
Sutton Park 0-4 Alexandra College
Sutton Park produced a vastly improved performance against last-year winners who were having their first outing in this season’s campaign. For long periods, Sutton managed to keep Alex away from their circle but, with the away side dominating possession, two goals each from Jessa Graham and Deirdre Duke ensured that the result was never in doubt.
St Gerards 6-1 The Kings Hospital
An excellent performance from St Gerards sees them well positioned having won both their opening fixtures. Goals from Danni Maher, Katie Burgess, Brigit McKeown, Stephanie Lowe, captain Meadhbh Delahunt, and Hayley Mulcahy ensured the result against a Kings Hospital side whose strike came from Levina Callow.
Mount Anville 2 (Sophie Moore, Anna O'Connell) Loreto, Beaufort 1 (Pheobe Lyons)

Round One results (Section B):
Kings Hospital 1-2 Mount Anville
A very late goal gave Mount Anville the spoils against Kings Hospital. A team comprising of many interprovincial players may have been expected to win more comfortably, but Kings Hospital are noting if not resiliant, particularly at home. Their young side pushed Mount Anville all the way, and the away side were grateful to leave with all three points.
Holy Child, Killiney 1-2 The High School
Goals from Amiee Jones O'Connor and Susan McRann - also an Irish tennis international - gave The High School a narrow opening victory against Holy Child, Killiney, whose goal came courtesy of Emma Russell.

Mt Anville beating Beaufort. Was that expected or is that the first surprise result of the season. Mt Anville must have a very good team to have beaten Beaufort who have 6 Leinster u18 players.
Well done to the mounties.
