After two successful years at the Shamrocks, Sharon Odofin finished on a high note on Sunday, scoring one final goal for women’s league-leading Shamrocks Green before her return to London this week.

“She has been brilliant on and off the field and she will be missed,” said coach Paddy Geraghty. “We wish her the best with her move home.”

Chloe Wheeler and Mikaela Howell each had hat tricks in an 8-3 victory over Rovers, while Georgia Frost was also on the mark.

“We did what we needed to do this weekend,” said Geraghty. “The score flattered the performance a bit, but I can’t fault the players on the first half of the season.”

Meanwhile, the Shamrocks first team stay fourth in CSL Division 1 after Saturday’s 4-2 win over bottom side CPR Whites at Randall’s Island.

Alejandro Fritz, Kurt Cameron, Mark Roche and Dan Giorgi were all on the mark for the Rocks in a victory welcomed by coach Kevin Grogan.

“Massive win,” he said. “Good discipline and the shape was good defensively in general.”

It was a four-goal margin for the reserves in the curtain raiser, who stayed second in their standings thanks to a very impressive 5-1 win.

James Whyte, Andrew Scott, Brendan Lane (twice) and Paul McDaid all made sure of the points for Dan Meola’s men.

“Every week we have gotten better and better,” said Meola. “We made a good CPR team look very ordinary tonight.”

In the other CSL games on Sunday, there was a double header at Randall’s Island with Paul Bradshaw scoring twice to help the Legends draw 2-2.

That was followed by Rocks 1960 cementing their top spot in Metro 2 with a 7-1 win over Brooklyn Bound.

The goals were evenly spread between Amar Daved, Joey Flynn, Conor Doherty, Cathal Monaghan, Dominic Nutt, Dan Meola and Hughie McGowan. Their opponents scored a late consolation.

The Over 30s enjoyed a resounding 8-0 win over CPR Orange.

Sean Riley scored a hat trick and man of the match Aiden Morton added a goal to his three assists.

Jeff Farrell scored twice, Mark Finn grabbed the sixth of the evening, and Paddy Geraghty produced the moment of the game, a Messi like touch and a Ronaldo like finish to the bottom corner, according to coach Sean McMullan.

“All in all, it was a great game from the lads,” said McMullan. “It was nice to see the return of Johnny Keogh and Mike Dineen to the center of the park.”
