No Joy for Heroic Hockey Women from UCC

Harlequins last night moved a step closer to being crowned women’s Munster Senior League winners following a 1-0 over UCC at the Garyduff sports grounds. The match was moved at the last minute to this venue from Harlequins as their pitch on the airport hill was unplayable due to foggy conditions. UCC performed heroically all night against a vastly experienced ‘Quins side. Goalkeeper Sarah Wrixon in particular was inspirational and was only beaten by a penalty corner 10 minutes from the end. Indeed UCC faced a dozen penalty corners all evening as the “home” team piled on the pressure from the beginning. Congratulations to Harlequins but UCC have a lot to look forward to as this is a young and talented team.
