Men's Division One Glenanne 0 Corinthian 6 (Brian Doherty 2, Conor Motyer, Chris Pelow, Andrew Cronje, Rowland Rixon-Fuller)
Corinthian picked up a surprisingly simple win at St Mark's this afternoon to make sure they stay in the mixer for a maiden title on Sunday afternoon hen they travel to Clontarf.
In the absence of Steven Doran and Stephen Butler - out for the final weekend of the Leinster league season following last week's red cards - Gareth Carragher stepped in for an exceptionally busy afternoon, pulling off a string of saves but he was powerless to stop Brian Doherty's first half drag-flick and a miraculous deflection from Conor Motyer for 2-0 at half-time. And the reds put a listless Glenanne performance to the sword as Doherty notched his second while Andrew Cronje, Chris Pelow and Rowland Rixon-Fuller all got in on the act.
The Whitechurch club, with the win, become the only side to have picked up a victory over every single opponent in the league campaign and, should they beat the Bulls will finish the season with an unbeaten away record. For the Glens, they have now lost three games on the spin, an incredibly rare occurrence in modern times.
Men's Division Two: Navan 0 Dublin University 7 (Andy Gray 2, Craig Moore, Daire Coady, Henry Butler, Charlie Pearmund, Andrew Beverland)
Dublin Uni end a league campaign of 'what might have been' as they recorded yet another huge win, hitting the top spot for the first time this season. It is nigh on impossible for them to stay there with each of the other contenders having three games still to play. Currently, they have scored over 25 goals more than their nearest rival and ended the season on a run of 16 points from a possible 18. Had they hit form sooner, a title challenge could have been a closer run thing.
Once again, the goals were shared around with six players on the mark with Daire Coady, Andrew Beverland and Charlie Pearmund's drag-flick netting from corners. The Badgers remain in fifth place as Bray were unable to field against Avoca this afternoon.
Men's Irish Junior Cup:
YMCA II and Monkstown II ensured the Irish Junior Cup will return to Dublin after a year in Cork as they produced excellent away wins in Ulster this afternoon, beating Cookstown II and Lisnagarvey II, respectively. Andy Ewington was the golden goal hero for the Town, dragging home with a minute and a half to earn a 3-2 win. Richard Sykes and Simon Groves were on target for the Town in normal time though Frank Ryan missed an early stroke saved. YM's route was slightly less fraught with former Sandford senior league winner Gary Ryan doubling up while Warwick Armstrong was also on the mark in a 3-1 win.
Results: Lisnagarvey 2 (G Bittle, Matt Murphy) Monkstown 3 (Simon Groves, Richard Sykes, Andy Ewington) on golden goal; Cookstown 1 (Ian Sloan) YMCA 3 (Gary Ryan 2, Warwick Armstrong)
