Weekly Reports

Gameweek 1 (25 September 2022)

With the Women’s League starting the previous weekend it was the turn of the Men’s National League Division 1 on the 25 September 2022. There were wins on the first week back for St. Vincent’s WPC (11-6 versus Sandycove SC in an all-Dublin derby), North Dublin (15-4 versus Clonard WPC in a difficult start for the newly promoted West Belfast team), Cathal Brugha (12-9 versus Drogheda WPC) and Corrib (12-5 versus Clontarf SC in a another tough opening fixture for the other newly promoted club). All matches were played at the National Aquatic Centre in Dublin. The games were historic as they were the first ever played in an International Standard 50 metre pool in Ireland, with St. Vincent’s 11-6 victory over Sandycove at the National Aquatic Centre being the first ever game at that Standard in Ireland. [References: 1-2]

Gameweek 2 (15-29 October 2022)

Corrib WPC went top of the Men’s National League Division 1 after the Galway team defeated Drogheda WPC 12-7 at Kingfisher in the University of Galway. [References: 1-2].

Gameweek 3 (12 November 2022)

Cathal Brugha took over sole leadership of the Swim Ireland Water Polo Men’s National League Division 1 on nine points with a huge 20-4 defeat of Clontarf SC who remained pointless after two games. St. Vincent’s however were right behind them with two wins from two after a 14-3 victory at Clonard WPC who like Clonarf SC were at rock bottom on no points. Both games were played in Lisnacarragh, Castlereagh. In an important match Sandycove SC joined Corrib WPC on six points after three matches each with a narrow 6-5 win in NUIG Kingfisher. [References: 1-2]

Gameweek 4 (26-27 November 2022)

The following day, a triple-header at the National Aquatic Centre, witnessed Drogheda WPC get their first win of the season in a 14-5 victory over another pointless team, Clontarf SC. The next match was a huge encounter between the top two teams, both 100% up to this game, with St. Vincent’s of Glasnevin squeezing victory by a score of 9-8 over Belfast’s Cathal Brugha. The final match of the weekend was a 6-5 win for North Dublin at Sandycove SC in a mid-table battle. [References: 1-2]

Gameweek 6 (11 December 2022)

In a big match-up between two teams with one loss North Dublin defeated Belfast’s Cathal Brugha 10-9 to move to 12 points, three behind both Cathal Brugha and St. Vincent’s. The battle between the bottom two teams was a 7-5 victory for Clontarf SC over Clonard WPC as the North Dubliners gained their first points of the season and joined Belfast’s Clonard SC on three points. In the final match of the day St. Vincent’s WPC remained with a 100% record after an 11-7 defeat of Galway’s Corrib WPC who stayed on nine points. [References: 1-2]

Gameweek 7 (8-14 January 2023)

Recap 2018-19

UCD Krakens finished fourth in the 2018-19 Irish Underwater Hockey League after an epic season-long duel with Cork / UL for third place.

They lost all games in Round 2, however, with the exception of the Belfast game, including a 0-1 loss to Cork / UL. which left them in fourth because Cork / UL had drawn with Otters in Round 1. Results went much the same in Round 3, with the Krakens losing all games bar a victory over Belfast. In Round 4 UCD shocked Champions-elect DCU / Vikings, winning 2-1, and drew with Cork / UL 2-2.
