Pegasus 4-3 Sumchanka

Pegasus were crowned European champions for the fourth time after defeating Ukrainian side Sumchanka 4-3 at Upper Malone on Monday.

Suzanne Beaney was the Pegasus heroine as she hit a hat-trick, including a late winner two minutes from time.

Pegasus made a dream start as Beaney (2) and Vanessa Surgeoner scored in the opening six minutes but the Ukrainians fought back to draw level at half-time.

Claire McMahon set up Beaney for the winner as she scored from close range.

Pegasus had booked their place in the final with victory over Lithuanian side Gintra on Sunday.

The Belfast side took the lead in that game nine minutes from half-time with a far-post finish from Claire McMahon.

Pegasus made the points safe on 53 minutes when Suzanne Beaney reversed her shot into the net from the ground.
