Maxol WIT Wildcats suffered their heaviest loss for some time when they were defeated by 28 points away to Liffey Celtics last Saturday night. Wildcats former favourite Jazmen Boone inflicted most of the damage as she finished the game as top scorer in a 78-50 points win for the home side.

Wildcats were never in this game and will be hoping for a huge improvement when they face into the first of three consecutive home games on Saturday night next.

Wildcats’ impressive home record reads three wins from three games but they will have to be at their best to maintain that run when they take on Brunell of Cork on Saturday.

The Cork city side were well fancied as league winning contenders this season, but injuries in pre- season games to their two international players and their excellent Canadian player proved costly so they now find themselves playing catch up on the leaders. With all players back to full health, Wildcats know what is coming at them and they must be totally prepared if they are to get back into the frame for the title that has eluded them for far too many years now.

It’s time for the ” Pride of the South-East ” to shake off the blues of last weekend and give their faithful supporters plenty to shout about this Saturday when the game gets under way at the Mercy Gym at 7pm.
Next weekend’s game is followed by a cup quarter final against reigning champions Glanmire and then another difficult clash with DCU, the reigning Superleague champions.
