Portlaoise Panthers off the mark.

There were big celebrations in Laois this weekend as Portlaoise Panthers secured their first win of the Women's Super League away to Meteors thanks, in no small part, to a superb display from Necole Sterling who netted 26 points for her side on the night. 

Speaking afterwards, Head Coach Hunor Harkai was thrilled with his side's win, but added that the result also lay in the strength of their defence.

“I am very happy with the win,” he said. “We played defence very well and because of this, we had a good advantage at the end of the first quarter and had a lot of control by the end of the second. We played the game our way, and now this win will give our players more confidence going forward - it will motivate all of us.

“We play Courtyard Liffey Celtics at home next, which will be a tough game but I know our home supporters – our sixth player – will be there to cheer us on for what will be an exciting match.”
