IT WAS a big weekend for Mark Ingle’s charges in both the Men’s and the Women’s Super League as KUBS secured a big win over Pyrobel Killester Thursday evening and ran League leaders Templeogue very close (losing out 71-76 at the end of a nail-biter) on Sunday, while DCU Mercy had 28 points to spare over NUIG Mystics in their Women’s Super League clash on Saturday.

Speaking about the win over Killester, Ingle said: “It was a great win and good for the lads. They’ve been working hard all year and staying in with the better teams – we’re hanging in and getting better every week.”

Elsewhere, UCD Marian maintained their impressive form winning 64-76 against Killester on Saturday, while DCU Saints had to settle for second best against a dominant Griffith Swords Thunder. Garvey’s Tralee Warriors secured another good win on the road, overcoming Éanna by 21 points, while SSE Airtricity Moycllen had 15 to spare over Belfast Star, and UCC Demons romped home to victory against Radisson Blu UL Eagles.

Ambassador UCC Glanmire remain top of the table in the Women’s Super League meanwhile after they overcame neighbours Singleton SuperValu Brunell on Sunday afternoon. Courtyard Liffey Celtics are still holding firm on to their second place position following a hard-fought win over Pyrobel Killester in Clontarf on Sunday evening, while Portlaoise Panthers added another win to their tally, overcoming Meteors on Saturday evening.
