Pegasus are focused on a semi-final bonus

Pegasus kept alive their chances of an Irish Hockey League semi-final place with a crucial 5-1 win over Belfast Harlequins at Deramore yesterday.

The victory margin was important because it gave the Premier League champions a vital bonus point.

The result means that Pegasus are level with Railway Union on points and the Belfast girls have the easier run-in in the round robin stages.

Claire Coey gave 'Quins the lead but Suzanne Beaney marked her return from injury with the equaliser. Kirsty McCollum’s brace and goals from Hannah Clarke and Fiona McIlwaine broke 'Quins resistance.

On Saturday, Ballymoney recorded a 4-2 win over Pembroke Wanderers, while Randalstown lost 5-2 to Loreto and Armagh were beaten 5-1 by UCD.
