Killester on brink of crowning glory

Killester need just one win from their two games this weekend to be crowned Men's Premier League champions.

The league leaders are first in action tomorrow evening when they host UL Eagles, before making the trip to Cork to play Bord Gais Neptune on Sunday.

Second-placed C&S UCC Demons take on SSE Renewables Moycullen in Galway – hoping to capitalise on any slip-ups from Killester.

However, as it currently stands, Demons can at best get to 49 points – a tally that Killester can reach on Saturday night with a win. And due to their superior head-to-head with Demons, that would be enough to bring the Premier League trophy back to the capital.

The remaining action takes place tomorrow as Neptune take on DCU Saints with both sides hoping to seal a place in the Champions Trophy.

Bottom side Templeogue play host to Dublin neighbours UCD Marian while Dublin Inter travel up north to face Belfast Star.

With the regular season wrapping up last weekend, the Women's Premier League title will once again be decided by a play-off – unlike the straight league format used in the men's competition.

UL Huskies and DCU Mercy, both league finalists in 2013, have earned byes to the semi-finals.

Huskies will play the winners of tomorrow's quarter-final between Killester and WIT Wildcats, while Mercy await the winners of the Cork derby between Team Montenotte Hotel and Singleton SuperValu Brunell which takes place tonight.
