PIHC Round Up | Glenroe maintain top spot as Cappamore get off the mark

Round four of the Premier IHC took place over the weekend.

The Premier IHC table took another turn this weekend as the fourth round of fixtures threw up some interesting results after three weeks away.

Glenroe now remain the only unbeaten side in the championship after Bruff suffered defeat for the first time this season. Meanwhile, it was the opposite for Cappamore at the other end of the table who finally got off the mark with their first win and points of the season.

The weekend began with Thursday’s fixtures between Bruff and Monaleen as well as Effin taking on Newcastle West simultaneously.

Monaleen narrowly edged out Bruff with a one point victory in Caherconlish with score finishing 0-24 to 2-17. The City side were six points to the good at half-time but fought hard to hold off a valiant Bruff side to go second in the championship, as their opponents drop to third.

Newcastle West put their third round woes behind them to produce a fine second-half display against Effin, winning 1-15 to 0-13. Effin were three points to the good at half-time but only managed two more in the second half compared to NCW’s ten as they rallied to their second victory of the campaign.

Sunday’s early fixture saw Cappamore claim their first victory after four attempts when they beat Dromin-Athlacca 2-19 to 0-19. Last year’s finalists still face an uphill battle to reach the knockout stages but moved off the bottom, usurping Dromin Athlacca in the process. Their opponents are yet to put any points on the board since their opening round win against Knockainey.

The last fixture of the weekend saw Glenroe maintain their unbeaten run as they beat Knockainey by four points, 1-17 to 0-16 in Knocklong. Glenroe have been in scintillating form since their opening round draw and inflicted another defeat on Knockainey who remain the only team in the championship yet to win.
