As we slowly creep our way back to the hockey pitch, some of the teams have already been back in action.
On Saturday the Ladies 3rds played a friendly against Genesis, winning 2-0, goalscorers were Laoise Horgan and Anna Lalor.
Sunday was a busy day with the Ladies Indoor, Ladies 2nds and 4ths all in league action. The 2nds and 4ths hosted Botanic in re-fixtures from before Christmas. It was a comprehensive 4-1 win for the 2nds with Juliette Kinghall scoring a hat-trick and Alison Dawson Whelan with a worldy. The 4ths were less fortunate and unfortunately lost 0-1.
On the indoor court, the Mens squad unfortunately pulled out of the league, however the Ladies came up against the very established and experienced Glenanne. Putting on a strong performance the ladies had the Glens worried early on, however the Glens experience came through and they took the victory with a comprehensive 5-0 win against Bray.
A notable mention to the Under 14 Girls who competed in the Portrane Indoor Tournament for the first time also on Sunday. Some superb performances and a place in the Shield confirmed for Sunday 20th. Their results were as follows:
Win V TRR 2-0, Ally and Charlotte Finnegan Quirke scoring
