Catholic Institute dominant against Muckross as they close the gap on table toppers Pembroke in Women’s EYHL

The Limerick side kept pressure on the top with a dominant win.

Catholic Institute maintained their brilliant start to the year with a third successive win in the EY Hockey League to remain second in the top table.

Over the weekend, they beat Muckross 4-0 to move within three points of Pembroke Wanderers.

The first quarter was scoreless with Insta testing the Muckross defensive mettle before taking the lead in the second quarter through Naomi Carroll, a cracking reverse-stick shot from the Olympian.

That was how it remained through to half-time but the Limerick side cut loose in the second half with Hannah Kelly grabbing a second goal. Róisín Upton added two identical penalty corner drag-flicks in the closing period to expand the lead to 4-0.

And while Catholic Institute were able to pick up a dominant win, table toppers Pembroke slipped up, drawing 2-2 with UCD. That result brought their seven game winning run to an end.

Pegasus and Old Alex also closed the gap to Pembroke with respective victories over Railway Union and Loreto.

Belfast Harlequins moved five clear of the drop with a huge win over Cork who stay bottom of the table.
