women's Premier Handball League: chance for PEninsula to fight back

In the women’s Premier Handball League, Peninsula will face Reading Lionesses one week after these two teams went head-to-head in the National Cup quarter-final. London Angels play University of Loughborough, and West London Eagles will face Olympia.

In last week’s National Cup quarter-final between Peninsula and Reading, the scores were tied at full-time and it took both periods of extra time for the Berkshire women to edge the win by just two goals. Peninsula have the opportunity to gain revenge in this league game, and victory would see them leapfrog Reading to go sixth in the table.

Both teams are looking for their second Premier Handball League win of the season. Throw-off is at 15.30 at Powerleague Trafford on Saturday.

London Angels were victorious over Reading Lionesses in round eight of fixtures, and this weekend they will play University of Loughborough who are fresh from their first win of the season. In the last round of league fixtures, the students overcame Peninsula. Angels have won four from seven in the league this season.

The teams throw-off at 13.30 at Barking Sporthouse on Sunday.

The final match of the weekend is between West London Eagles and Olympia. Eagles will be full of confidence after their win in the quarter-finals of the National Cup, and are currently fourth in the league having won four from eight. They will face an Olympia team that has taken the top spot after their recent win over London GD, to become the only unbeaten team in either men’s or women’s Premier Handball Leagues.

Will Olympia be able to hold on to their unbeaten record? Victory for Eagles will see them move to second in the table.

Throw-off is at 14.30 at Leyton Score Centre on Sunday.
