Pegasus sealed the EY Hockey League title in stunning fashion on Saturday afternoon, running out 6-0 winners over Muckross at The Dub.

As second-placed Loreto were held to a 1-1 draw at Pembroke, the win takes Pegasus eight points clear with one game of the season left.

It took until the second quarter for Steph Thompson to open the scoring after Jessica Holland struck the post in the most dangerous attack of the opening period.

Thompson showed her clinical edge to convert a rebound from a penalty corner and Alex Speers doubled the scores shortly after half-time.

It was then that the floodgates opened as Lucy McKee got a touch to deflect home a crash ball for 3-0 at the end of the third quarter.

McKee's second came in between goals from Caitlyn Harvey and Claire McKane in the final quarter as Pegasus won the trophy with two games to spare.
