Last weekend proved to be one to forget for most of our teams unfortunately!
A relatively quiet weekend last week as only our mens teams had matches, with all ladies leagues having a free weekend for the bank holiday.
For those that played it wasn’t the best of weeks. The mens 1sts suffered a 6-2 defeat to league leaders Monkstown, while the 2s narrowly lost 4-3 to the same opposition on Sunday. The 4ths took points off Portrane with a score of 2-2. The 3s game against Trinity was postponed due to the Intervarsity tournament, while the 5ths game against YM was also called off.
This weekend sees most teams return to normal action. The mens 1sts host C of I in the 2nd round of the IHL. Earlier at home at 1pm, the 2s host Fingal, while the 3s have an early start at 11am against Monkstown. The 4ths also face Monsktown at home on the back pitch at 1pm, while the 5th play away to Wicklow at 1pm. The 2s have drawn Pembroke away in the cup, and so face a double weekend, at 2pm Sunday.
For the ladies teams, the 1s have a second week off as they were given a bye in the cup. The 2s play at home on the back at 3pm against Guiness, while both of the 3s and 4s are away. The 3s play away to Genesis at 3.15, while the 4s have an early game against Clontarf at 10am.
