    This week it's a mammoth fixture list with both the Leinster League back in action and a catch up game in the Electric Ireland Senior Cup. Glenanne pulled off a massive surprise result beating Pegasus in the competition on penalty strokes. In the Leinster League, the first big shock of the season with Railway Union falling at the challenge of Hermes. Loreto also dropping points to the students of UCD puts the Belfield girls in pole position almost half way through the season. It also firmly shows that Hermes early season promise is justified. In the men's league, the top three sides in the league all recorded victories with Three Rock Rovers, Monkstown and Pembroke all taking maximum points from the weekend's action. Railway also took advantage of the defeat of UCD to close the gap on that all important fourth place in the league for IHL qualification.
