EY Hockey League Round 5 Preview

The EY League continues this week.

Points to note: Last week EYHL Men’s games started on Friday night Instonians welcomed Cookstown at Shawbridge. Instonians then opened the gap in the third quarter with goals from Michael Watt and Tommy Orr. Three Rock Rovers took all three points in their 3-2 win against YMCA. Monkstown took the lead early on against Glenanne with a goal from G Cole in the first quarter. A penalty stroke in the third quarter put Monkstown 2-0 up. Luke Roleston got his clean slate for Banbridge against Annadale with a 6-0 win. Lisnagarvey and Pembroke Wanderers had a tight first quarter but as we got into the final quarter Lisnagarvey put two more in the back of the net to see them finish 6-1.

The Women’s side saw all teams competing.
Loreto welcomed Catholic Institute to Rathfarnham for a tight game. The first quarter saw a good fight for both teams trying to convert but not until the second quarter did Catholic Institute put one past Loreto to go 1-0 up. The score stayed the same till full-time. Pembroke Wanderers hosted Railway Union in a close game but a reverse stick deflection 2 mins into the second half saw Railway Union take the win. Ards and UCD had an even fight with a final score of 3-3. Old Alex made the most of their PC against Belfast Harlequins with a 6-1 win. By halftime in the Monkstown and Pegasus game, it was level but Pegasus pushed back in the last quarter where we saw 3 more goals for them to take the win.
