Railway Union produced Ireland's first win in the top tier of European women's club hockey as they saw off Azerbaijan side Atasport 5-2 in their seventh place Club Champions Cup play-off in Den Bosch yesterday.

They went 3-0 ahead after a Sinead Dooley double and another from Kate Dillon before the Azeris bounced back, making it 3-2.

Kate Lloyd nabbed two quick goals to see Railway over the line in some style.
