Wildcats and Vikings return to league action

Wildcats and Vikings return to league action

The Wildcats return to the court on Sunday when they head to Dublin to take on DCU in the Super League.

While they are coming off the back of a loss in the league, Tommy O Mahony's side had a big cup win in the interim.

They beat Glanmire in the opening round of the Paudie O'Connor Cup to send the league champions packing on the opening night for the second straight year.

The Wildcats are currently fourth in the standings with just six points separating them from the top of the table. DCU meanwhile are one place behind them on the table.


The Wildcats have been bolstered in recent weeks with the introduction of two new American recruits - Mikayla Pivec and Nae Davidson. The pair sat down with WLR Sport last week to chat about life in Waterford and how they have settled in so far.

O'Mahony will be pleased to see the return of his two international players, Kate and Sarah Hickey, who were in action for Ireland against France at last weekend's EuroBasket 2025 qualifiers in Dublin.

While on the men's side of things, following their opening round cup loss two weeks ago, the SETU Waterford Vikings are back in action on Saturday.

Dean Kavanagh's team heads to UL to take on the Limerick Sport Eagles in the First Division.


The Vikings find themselves 11th in the table of 14 sides, with three wins and two losses in their opening five games.

Their opponents meanwhile share the same record but are ahead of Waterford on points scored.

Tip off at the UL arena is at 7 o'clock on Saturday evening.
