We can improve further, insists Pegasus captain


Pegasus co-captain Michelle Harvey claims there is more to come from her side after a 3-1 comeback win over Railway Union in Dublin on Saturday saw them move three points clear in the EY Irish Hockey League.

The former international is convinced Pegasus can lift silverware after losing in the EYHL play-off semi-finals and the Irish Senior Cup final last season.

Harvey said: "It's great to be sitting top with four wins from four, but I firmly believe our best is yet to come."

Sarah Hawkshaw gave Railway the lead but Irish World Cup star Shirley McCay levelled with a penalty corner conversion.

Kate Gourley made it 2-1 before Harvey scrambled in number three from another set-piece.

Belfast Harlequins beat Muckross 2-0 with goals from Gemma Frazer and Rachel Johnston but Ards were unable to make it a clean sweep for the Ulster sides as they went down 5-0 to Loreto.

In the Ulster Premier League, newly-promoted Lisnagarvey are now top after a 4-3 win over Banbridge, while Lurgan beat Rainey 2-0 and Queen's beat Mossley 5-0 with the other two top-flight fixtures ending all-square.
