Basketball Ireland Women's Super League

AMBASSADOR UCC GLANMIRE got back to winning ways in the League with aplomb at the weekend as they broke the 100-point mark to storm home to a 102-46 point victory over Meteors at home in Cork on Saturday evening.

Glanmire – who took home their fourth Hula Hoops National Cup title last weekend – had suffered their first loss of the Super League and indeed, the season, just one week prior when they lost out by four points to Maxol WIT Wildcats in a thriller in Waterford. However, they made no hesitation in showing off their dominance once more this weekend, with Claire Rockall, Chantell Alford and Casey Grace top scoring their side home to victory.




Elsewhere, defeated Hula Hoops Cup finalists Courtyard Liffey Celtics secured a strong win on the road, when they overcame NUIG Mystics in Galway 42-75. Emma O’Connor and Sorcha Tiernan proved to be the vital cogs in the Liffey Celtics machine as they kept their composure to run out winners.

A cracker in the IWA in Clontarf was in store for fans on Saturday evening meanwhile, as Pyrobel Killester ran out ten point winners over Maxol WIT Wildcats, with Mimi Clarke lighting up the scoreboard for the home team. Elsewhere, DCU Mercy had the better of Singleton SuperValu Brunell in the last game of the weekend down in Cork on Sunday afternoon, running out 41-68 point winners in the end. It wasn’t all bad news for Brunell though, as the loss still saw them move up from the bottom of the table, with points’ difference pushing Meteors down below them.

Basketball Ireland Women's Division 1:

ITC Basketball have been dishing up heart-stopping basketball for fans and management alike these last few weeks - having brought their last game to double overtime - and this weekend was certainly no different as they once more faced overtime after ending 53-53 with Fr Mathews in a thriller down in Cork. A high-scoring Niamh Dwyer was the spark behind the Fr Mathews offence, with Amy Fitzgerald proving key for the Cork team too, but a determined display from Megan Campbell, Jamiyah Bethune and Holli Dunne brought the game to overtime and Carlow just had enough to hang on at the last buzzer of the day to win by six in the end. 




Elsewhere, there was another thriller in Kilkenny with Marble City Hawks - who had to settle for second best in last weekend's Hula Hoops National Cup final after overtime against Ulster Rockets - made no mistake this week as they secured a three-point win in a nerve-wracking clash with Ulster University Elks. Kelly O'Hallahan, Katie Fox and Aine Sheehy once more hit the top scorers list for the home side and despite the best efforts of an impressive Nyasha Sarju, managed to hold on and win in the end.
