Wildcats go top, Vikings game waved off.

Wildcats go top, Vikings game waved off.

After two games in the women's super league, the SETU Waterford Wildcats are sitting on top of the table, with just scoring difference separating them from the Liffey Celtics.

Tommy O'Mahony's team backed up their impressive curtain raiser with Glanmire, beating Trinity Meteors at the Mercy Hall on Saturday evening, 99-52.

While every team in the league will have added reinforcements from last season, some things stay the same and just like death and taxes, you can always count on the Hickey sisters to deliver when they pull on the Wildcats singlets.

Sarah top scored on the night, hitting 31 of her team's 99 total. Her sister Kate was also in point-scoring form, putting 19 on the board.


Newly signed American Myia Clark hit 19 also, with her fellow U.S. collegiate athlete Jazmine Messengill adding 12 in her first home game for the club.

Massengill was deadly accurate with her free throws, securing all 5 offered to her, while Sarah Hickey nailed 7 of her 8.

The head coach O'Mahony will be able to look back and be content with his side's efforts, leading from pillar to post and only losing out on scoring in the final quarter.

The scores at the end of each quarter were as follows: Q1 32-12, Q2 22-12, Q3 32-10, Q4 13-18.


Next up is the trip to face fifth-placed Killester on Sunday, October 8th.

While there was huge disappointment for the SETU Vikings and their fans when their game with Limerick Celtics was called off with three minutes to go in the 3rd period due to a slippery surface.

The Vikings were two behind at the time but were looking like they could have taken the game with the score sitting at 52-49.

Basketball Ireland will now decide whether Limerick get the points or it’s a replay.

Dean Kavanagh's side are on the road in Killarney next weekend where they will look to claim their first win of the campaign.
