Hermes end campaign on high note

Women's Division One:
Bray 0 Hermes 5 (Anna O'Flanagan 2, Gillian Pinder, Christine Quinlan, Deirdre Duke)
Hermes completed their league campaign with a 5-0 win in Bray to take second place in the women's division one table ahead of Loreto. Anna O'Flanagan and Christine Quinlan scored corner goals in the first half to start the ball rolling before Gillian Pinder scored a lovely effort after latching onto Niamh Atcheler's overhead ball.

Aine Connery was a lively presence in the second period for Hermes, setting up a second goal for O'Flanagan and one for Deirdre Duke. For Bray, they end the regular season in tenth place with seven points and will now play Three Rock Ladies in the promotion/relegation play-off following their 3-2 win over Corinthian II in midweek left them as the best placed first team in Division Two.

* Elsewhere, Three Rock Rovers will play Monkstown in the final after a controversial week in the Avoca U-21 Cup. Rovers beat YMCA 2-0 this evening to take up their final place. The Y had been awarded their semi-final place by the Leinster Branch by walkover against Corinthian while on the other half of the draw, Railway Union failed to field on time against Monkstown, conceding a walkover. The final, however, will no longer take place on Sunday in North Kildare due to Rovers' involvement in the IHL in Belfast.

** The U-16 Jacqui Potter Cup semi-final between Railway Union and Hermes will be replayed on Friday night following a mix-up with cut off ages. Railway won the initial tie but now play again at 6pm.
