It was the National Cup winners taking on the Super League leaders in this Dublin derby.

The home team opened very strongly, and left the Killadies with a lot of work to do in the second quarter to make up ground. As scoring picked up, the gap did close, but there was still a lot to do in the second half as the first closed 42-25

Killester found more pace in the third, and Christa Reed was scoring well throughout the game, and finished the match on 23 points. However, the gap couldn’t be closed, and DCU Mercy maintained their position at the top of the league table.
