Battle of Cork tips off between Brunell and Glanmire

In the Women’s Super League meanwhile there is a big Cork battle on the cards on Sunday afternoon as Singleton SuperValu Brunell welcomes near neighbours, Ambassador UCC Glanmire to the Parochial Hall. Brunell come into the game off the back of a huge overtime win against Maxol WIT Wildcats last weekend, while Glanmire went down at the hands of Courtyard Liffey Celtics last Sunday – their second loss in a row.

Liffey Celtics meanwhile remain top of the table with six wins from six, and they will be hoping to keep that impressive streak going when they travel to the IWA to face Pyrobel Killester on Saturday evening. Killester have a very solid home record however and will be hoping to keep that intact in this weekend’s battle.

Elsewhere, Portlaoise Panthers will be looking to regroup after a tough loss to DCU Mercy last week. They welcome NUIG Mystics to St Mary’s Hall, while DCU are back on their home stomping ground and will face off against Maxol WIT Wildcats in what is set to be a very close game.

It’s Cup action in the Women’s Division One, with two Hula Hoops National Cup quarter-finals tipping off this weekend. An in-form Fr Mathews (who are unbeaten in the league) will welcome last year’s Cup finalists Marble City Hawks to Cork in what is set to be one of the games of the weekend, while Ulster University Elks will play host to Meteors on Sunday in the second quarter-final of the weekend.
