Teams hone their skills in weekend friendlies

A number of pre-season friendlies took place over the weekend of the 7th/8th October ahead of the start of the 2017-18 IOHA Senior Leagues.

Blanchardstown Institute of Technology was the venue as defending Men’s Champions Dublin City HC took on the newly formed Dublin Wings. Dublin City ran out winners on a scoreline of 43-36 and it was a good day all round for the teams in yellow as the Dublin City ladies were victorious over Maynooth Ladies 18-10.

The University College Dublin Sports hall was the venue for the annualĀ pre- season Corn Chothrom na Feinne friendlies between UCDHC and Astra HC. The Astra Ladies and Men’s teams took home the 2017 Corn Chothrom na Feinne .
Women UCD 21 – Astra 35
Men UCD 23 – Astra 30

All teams and their coaches will have a better idea of where they stand, ahead of the new season and what needs to be worked if they are to get their hands on silverware over the course of the new season.
