EYHL 2 Round 2 Preview

The Men’s and Women’s EY Hockey League 2 enters its second round of fixtures this weekend. On the men’s side in Group A, Corinthians play their first match as they host Cork Harlequins in St Columba’s College at 3.15 pm. The Cork side will hope they can bounce back after losing their first match against Railway Union last weekend by the odd goal in nine. The Park Avenue side host Queens at 1.30 pm in the other tie in Group A.

In Group B, Bandon plays their first game of the 2022/23 campaign against South Antrim in Bandon Grammar at 1 pm. Kilkeel welcomes Dublin side Avoca to Kilkeel High School at 2.30 pm with both teams looking to record their first points of the season, each side coming away pointless in the first round, both coming out the wrong side of a 2-1 scoreline.

In the women’s competition, Group A sees Avoca travel to Muckross in an early top-of-the-table clash at 1.30 pm, while Ulster Elks get their campaign under way against a travelling University of Galway side in Dangan.

In Group B, Corinthians are at home to Queens in St Columba’s College at 1.15 pm. It is Queens’ first game in the competition this season, while Corinthians took three points after beating Cork Harlequins 4-1 in round one. The other tie in Group B sees Ballymoney welcome Cork Harlequins to the Joey Dunlop Centre at 2.30 pm. Ballymoney will hope to build on their Round 1 win, their 7-2 victory over Galway the biggest winning margin of the day.
