Davitts 18 Bohola 14
Not a very high scoring encounter but it lacked nothing in the excitement stakes.

Bohola lead for most of the game coming unstuck in the last quarter with Mark Calvey, Ciaran Sheridan and Shane Hopkins putting away baskets to finally put their noses in front to stay.

Bohola had the best of the exchanges earlier on in the game getting in for some very easy scores with Conor Jordan driving the base to great effect.

Once Davitts closed the gaps and played with a little more urgency having come to terms with the fact that their leader was indeed mute and the usual roar to action wasn't going to materialize, Get well soon Seamus! They picked up the pace themselves and came away with the points.

Bohola:Conor Jordan 4,Alan Regan, Jmaes Byrne 4, Stephen Wallace, Jason Goldrick, Shane Evans, Shane Philbin, James Evans, Sean Boyle, Nicholas O'Neill, Kieran McNicholas 6, Mark Jordan, Ronan Malee.

Charlestown 28 Bunninadden Comets 45
The result of this was never in doubt Charlestown staged an attempted come back late in the third with two three pointers from Sinead Duffy but it was no where near enough as Comets just stepped up a gear to move away again.
Comets hit the front playing a very effective press which caught Charlestown lacking with Aisling Egan hitting 10 points without reply all from mistakes forced by the press.

Charlestown 30 T.C.Pumas 34
Towncentre without Sarah Casey were always going to be beatable and left it late in this one to pull away.It was all square at the end of the first with Towncentre taking just a two point lead at the half time mark, it was Charlestown who ended the third with a four point advantage with Maeve Colleran and Aoife Walsh catching Towncentre on the break.

It was the driving power of Brenda Lavelle and Meave McCormack who really made the difference scoring 12 of their teams 14 points in the final quarter

Ballintubber 30 Davitts 28
This one went to the wire with extra time thrown in for good measure, It would be hard to begrudge Ballintubber their first win of the season under new coach Angela McNally.Davitts never got to grips with Ballintubbers big center player Deirdre Horan who proved almost unstoppable when she got a ball into her hands scoring 16 points and virtually all of Ballintubbers points in the fourth quarter to pull the teams level.

A couple of three pointers from Lyndsay Browne for Davitts
early on gave them a half time lead of 6 points. But it was Nuala And Dierdre Horan who were Ballintubbers main scorers and when they got their second wind there was very little Davitts could do.

Bronagh Leonard, Denise Brett 10, Claire Feeney 4, Emer Dolan.
