After two early season defeats by Hermes and a scoreless draw in the league with Trinity, it looked like Railway Union might take time to find their feet without some of their high-quality players. On Saturday, though, they seemed to be making decent progress as they beat holders UCD in the second round of the Irish Senior Cup.

Railway had to come from behind twice after Deirdre Duke gave the students the lead and Chloe Watkins made it 2-1, Emma Smyth and Hannah de Burgh Whyte putting the visitors level before the break. There were no more scores until Kate Lloyd got the silver goal winner for Railway in extra time.

Hermes and Glenanne won the round’s other all-Leinster ties. Hermes beat Old Alexandra 4-0, while Glenanne beat Corinthian on penalty strokes after a 1-1 draw.
