Womens' Super-7: Olympia bidding to stay clear at top

Olympia play Cambridge on Saturday looking for the victory that will keep them clear at the top of Super-7.

Olympia have a two-point advantage over defending champions London GD, although they have played one match more. Olympia are unbeaten in seven matches, a run that includes six wins. Cambridge go into the match boosted by their second victory of the season last week, against Eagles. That result took them off the bottom of the table up to fifth, although they have played a match more than Hawks and Angels below them. Throw-off at the Copper Box Arena is at 12.30, and is followed by the Mens’ Super-8 match between the two clubs at 14.30.

Second plays third when GD travel to the West Midlands on Sunday to play Coventry Sharks at Aldersley Village. GD are in great form with five straight wins, while Sharks will want to get back to winning ways after a four-match unbeaten streak came to an end last week against Olympia. GD know maximum points, combined with a defeat for Olympia will take them top on goal difference. A win for Sharks would take them level on points with GD. Throw-off is at 13.30 and is part of a great double bill with the Mens’ Super-8 match between Sharks and GD throwing off at 15.30.

West London Eagles and London Angels meet at Sporthouse on Sunday. Victory is imperative for Angels who sit bottom of Super-7. A win or a draw for Angels would take them above NEM Hawks, who are not in action, although they will have played a match more. Eagles have not won in seven matches and will be bidding to end their poor run of form. The match throws off at 13.00 and is followed by the Mens’ Super-8 match between Eagles and Nottingham at 15.00.
