Annadale produced another huge comeback to land what could be a very important point in the battle to avoid the relegation places in the men’s EY Hockey League’s.

They trailed 4-1 deep into the second half at Whitechurch Park against Corinthian, but fought back to level at 4-4 and move four points clear of the drop zone.

Ciarán O’Shea gave Corinthian the lead in the second minute before Callum Robson’s cracker levelled the game early in the second quarter. Parity was only temporary though as Ian Stewart’s deflected penalty corner put Corinthian back in front and a Peter Caruth bullet made it 3-1 at half-time.

Davy Howard’s penalty stroke seemingly had the Dubliners on course for the points, but Robson’s second opened up hope.

Robbie Davidson got in on the act with seven minutes to go and, from a corner in the 67th minute, David Tremlett struck a hugely important equaliser.

Pegasus advanced to the semi-finals of the women’s Irish Senior Cup with a dominant performance against Muckross at Grange Road, prevailing 6-1.

After an early disallowed effort and some good Aoife Glennon stops, Alex Speers guided home from a Shirley McCay corner slap for the opening goal and she added another from play soon after.
