One of IT Carlow’s games has been postponed this weekend due to Covid-19.
They were due to play Scotts Lakers Killarney on Saturday in the InsureMyVan.ie Division 1 but the game is off.
However, the ladies’ side is in action on Sunday when they host Killester at 1.30 pm in the Super League.
It’s the opening game in the MissQuote.ie Super League and the Dublin club were 91-63 winners when they met in October.
“It’s going to be a tough game on Sunday. Killester are playing exceptionally well at the moment and know from our meeting earlier in the season just how good they can be.” said IT Carlow head coach Martin Conroy.
Karl Kilbride, Killester’s head coach, hailed Kilkenny woman Lucy Coogan’s performances this season ahead of the game.
“We haven’t played a game in four weeks now, so to say we’re excited for this weekend is an understatement! We finished off the first half of the season with two good wins, and we’re hoping to start the second half of our season on a similar note” said Karl.
“Carlow is a tough place to go and get a win. While they haven’t managed to come away with a win yet, they’ve shown patches in multiple games of being really effective”.
“They have two good Americans, who can really shoot the ball and one of Basketball Ireland’s brightest underage stars in Lucy Coogan. The numbers Lucy has put up in her first year playing Super League are incredible”.
“We’ll have to do a much better job guarding her this weekend, than we did first time around, if we’re going to start 2022 with the result we want.”
Marble City Hawks also return to action after the Christmas break with a game against the Portlaoise Panthers away on Saturday at 6 pm in Division One.
