Coughlan C & S Neptune bid to end the year on a high with victory over Maree tomorrow afternoon.
The Cork outfit suffered back to back defeats away to Tralee Warriors and Keane’s Supervalu Killorglin and player-coach Lehmon Colbert is keen to snap that losing streak especially with a Cup semi-final against Griffith College Templeogue looming early next month. Colbert said: “We haven’t thought about the cup semi-final as our total focus is getting a win against Maree and then we are on the road again against UCD Marian.”
Catalonian, Nil Sabata, and victory scholar American Peter Hoffman will be crucial tho home hopes this weekend.
Maree will be no pushovers though with Darin Johnson, Orioles Balsells Plaza along with Irish stars, Paul Freeman and Eoin Rockall, key figures in this campaign.
Abbey Seals Dublin Lions continue their search for a first win and they have another tough task when hosting DCU Saints. Saints - fresh from a win over Killester before the Christmas break - can be difficult opposition when Michael Bonaparte is in full flow and they should gain maximum points.
Moycullen are another side whose league position doesn’t reflect their performances will be hopeful of gaining a second win over Pyrobel Killester when they host the Dubliners at the Kingfisher gym.
