DCU Mercy sees off Glanmire

DCU Mercy stomped out a massive win over Ambassador UCC Glanmire in the Women’s Super League this afternoon, running out 20-point winners in the end.

Mark Ingle’s charges asserted their dominance over the game from the off, with top scoring from Tiffany Corselli and Sarah Woods edging them beyond reach of the Cork side.

We’re very happy; said Ingle afterwards. It’s always been a great battle between us and Glanmire over the last ten years or so, there’s never been much between the teams. We’re still trying to find out what type of team we are. We did a good job today defensively I thought in the first half. We scored 50 points which is not often when you’re playing Glanmire.

In the other game of the weekend, Pyrobel Killester picked up their third win in a closely contested match against Maxol WIT Wildcats on Saturday evening. With nothing separating the sides, it was Killester’s Aisling McCann who dug deep at the end of the third quarter to produce a much-needed three pointer to put her side up 52-50 going into the last, and the home team pushed on from there to win out 72-65.
