Cup anguish as men crash out of 3 competitions over tough weekend
Cup anguish as men crash out of 3 competition over tough weekend
Pembroke M2s out of IJC and Railway Cups at hands of TRR as M4s fall to YMCA in closing minutes.
Dave Loughrey’s men’s 2XI started brightly against the Irish Junior Cup holders in an extremely tight game in Serpentine Avenue on Saturday. Despite falling victim to an early Peter Bakeney strike and trailing 0-1 at halftime the game got back on track courtesy of a signature Scott Furlong penalty corner flick. However the match headed for 1v1s in order to break the deadlock and in the end it wasn’t to be on the day with Rovers emerging victorious after shootouts. Final score PWHC 3 TRR 4.
In an odd quirk of fate the same two teams met in colder conditions the following day to contest the LHA Railway Cup quarter final. This time not quite as close – TRR running out 4-0 winners, with Peter Blakeney again breaching the Pembroke goal.
Gavin Miller’s M4s had a double header against YMCA in the league on Saturday and the LHA Intermediate Cup on Sunday. The Saturday spoils were shared 1-1 in a game that Pembroke will feel they should have won comfortably, and the Sunday honours went to the Wesley College side 3-2 with the winning score coming in the final minute of play, taking the gloss off two spectacular Gary Johnston goals in either half.
Normal league service resumes next weekend with a big EYHL double header for the ladies vs Old Alex (13:30 away) and the men vs Annadale (16:00 home). Please come to both venues to support these must-win ties. Complimentary bus from Serpentine Avenue to Alexandra college and back again for grub and plenty of noise in HQ.
Ladies cocktail night + DJ rounds out the evening with something for everything.
