Killester craving much-needed boost at Moycullen

Elaine Caffrey

Tonight, in the Nivea For Men's SuperLeague, Moycullen will welcome Killester to NUI Galway as both teams battle it out for a much-needed win after their disappointing results last weekend.

Moycullen fell to UCC Demons, after they received a master-class on how to close out a game, while Killester suffered at the hands of UCD Marian.

Meanwhile, in Cork, Bord Gáis Neptune will welcome DCU Saints. Once again, both teams will be eager to improve on their performances from last week as Neptune's winning streak was brought to a halt by Dublin Inter and DCU Saints lost at home to UL Eagles. This match-up will be interesting as Neptune narrowly beat DCU by seven points earlier in the season.

UL Eagles will play for the second time this weekend when they take on UCC Demons in the UL Arena. All eyes will be on this game as leaders UCC are the only team yet to lose a game.

Tomorrow will see Killester play their second game of the weekend when they revisit Marian. This will be the third and final league fixture between the two Dublin rivals this season. Last weekend, the northsiders fell to UCD -- however, Killester came away with the win when they met back in September.

In the Nivea For Women's SuperLeague, Meteors welcome Team Montenotte Hotel Cork. Both teams engaged in tight games last weekend, but Meteors fell victims to an undefeated DCU Mercy while Team Montenotte narrowly escaped the clutches of a tough Liffey Celtics.

WIT Wildcats will hope to catch Killester on the hop as the Dubliners return from a week-long break. Meanwhile, last year's champions, UL, visit Liffey Celtics.

Tomorrow, Singleton SuperValu Brunell will travel to Dublin to battle with DCU Mercy.
