Pyrobel Killester blew the race for the Men’s Premier League title wide open with a comprehensive win over Templeogue at the Oblate Hall. Brian O’Malley’s side raced out to an early lead through the dominant Paul Dick and Jermaine Turner and went to win 98-66. Templeogue showed signs of fatigue after their maiden Hula Hoops National Cup win, and C&S UCC Demons capitalised to go top, beating DCU Saints 102-73 at the Mardyke.

SSE Airtricity Moycullen picked up their fourth win of the campaign with a 72-52 win at home to UL Eagles. The Galway side were full value for the win after a strong third quarter put them in control.

Belfast Star lost ground in the race for the final four with a 75-92 defeat at GCD Swords Thunder. Thunder, recovering from their cup final defeat, had a strong start and remain level on points with UCD Marian who beat Eanna with a spread of scorers at Belfield. Marian are ahead of Thunder on the head-to-head record and it was a bright atmosphere at the UCD Sports Centre as Meteors gave themselves every chance of a home draw in the Women's Premier League playoffs with an 83-74 win over Maxol WIT Wildcats. 

Mark Byrne’s squad built a 46-38 lead in the first half and protected it as Emily Leer topped out on 22 points. 

Pyrobel Killester slipped back in their bid to win the regular season title after an 84-71 defeat at Courtyard Liffey Celtics. The result gives Celtics a shot at making the final playoff spot and could also speed up DCU Mercy’s mission to finish the season on top of the table. 

If Mark Ingle’s side beat Maxol WIT Wildcats at home next Sunday, the title is assured. 

Team Montenotte Hotel came through unscathed from an 86-56 win over Portlaoise Panthers. UL Huskies picked up a vital road win to move out of the relegation spot. The Limerick side won 78-76 at Singleton SuperValu Brunell.
