Wesley and Mt Sackville tie at top of Group A

Senior School's Premier League: Week four results

Section A

Wesley College 2-2 Mount Sackville
The clash of two teams with a 100pc record lived up to expectations, as the lead exchanged hands and both sides came away with their unbeaten record intact. After a scoreless first half, Wesley took the lead when Niamh Sweeney broke the deadlock five minutes into the second period. However, they could not hold onto the lead for long, as S O’Connell got Mount Sackville level less than two minutes later. With just seven minutes left, Siun McLoughlin scored from a corner to put the visitors in front. Just like Wesley earlier, however, they could not hold onto their lead, and within two minutes Katie Warren finished off a fine team move to grab a share of the spoils.

Section A (played-points; goal difference in brackets)
1. Wesley 4-10 (+9), 2. St Andrew’s 3-9 (+15) 3. Mt Sackville 3-7 (+4) 4. Muckross Park 3-3 (0) 5. Loreto, Bray 2-3 (0) 6. Our Lady’s, Terenure 3-3 (-4) 7. Mt Temple 3-3 (-5) 8. Rathdown 3-0 (-9) 9. Loreto, Dalkey 2-0 (-10)

Section B
King's Hospital 0-4 Loreto, Beaufort
A one-sided game in Palmerstown ensured that Beaufort got back on winning ways. An early goal knocked the stuffing out of the hosts, and they never fully recovered. The visitors goal was never threatened, and were it not for the performance of the Kings Hospital goalkeeper the scoreline could have been heavier.

St Gerard's 3-0 High School
At the midterm break, St Gerard's put themselves nicely at the summit of Section B, with a comfortable win over High School. Goals from Hayley Mulcahy, Sarah Fitzgerald, and Katie Burgess gave them maximum points against High School. Section B looks to be very close, with 4 points separating 5 teams, many of whom have a game in hand.

Alexandra College 0-0 Mount Anville
