Weekend Preview: 27th February

By YMCA HC Committee

A number of big games on Saturday followed by Race Night in the evening

Another busy and important weekend coming up with 6 senior home games on Saturday.

M1s start the day off vs. UCD away at 12.50am. They played each other midweek and the M1s will be hoping to reverse the result and pick up the win. It was almost 3 games since they'd scored until Eric scored a consolation on Tuesday. Need to start banging in those goals again.

L1s have a relegation crunch match vs. Old Alex. Last week's win vs Hermes started to ease relegation fears but the job isn't done just yet. A win against the ladies' old rival will push them right up the table. The match tips off at 1.30pm in Claremont .

M2s form recently has been trending upwards since Christmas and a win vs. Railway Union should see them safe. Match tips off at 4pm in Wesley.

L2s can all but seal the league title this weekend with a win vs. Botanic at 3.30pm in Wesley. They are 10 points clear with 4 games to go. It's no more than they deserve after a great season.

M3s are back top of division 3, all be it having played one game more. They continue to grind out wins and keep the pressure up on Pembroke. They play UCD at 2pm in Wesley this Saturday.

M4s slipped up last week and surrendered the lead of division 5. Still all to play for as they have matches against 1st and 3rd in the league still to come. This Saturday it's Enniscorthy at 2pm in Wesley.

M5s loved January, February not so much. They have yet to pick up a point this month. They play North Kildare at 3pm in Claremont. 3 points would be the perfect way to round up the month.

Following the L2s match in Wesley, the U13A girls will be playing Loreto. This team is currently unbeaten in the league and playing some great hockey. A win would see them through to the league quarter finals.

Finally to round off Saturday, at 8pm upstairs in the Dropping Well, the M1s will be hosting the Race Night. Horse and jockey sales are now finished but there will still be touts on the night. Make sure to come down as it's always a fun night
