Hard luck to Pat O’Dowd and his Best Cup team who lost 3 to 2 to Delgany this afternoon. With three at home and putting out a strong team Pat felt we had a great chance but alas it wasn’t to be we came up against a very strong Delgany team who played extremely well on the day.
In Delgany, Jimmy Hempenstall & Brian O’Connor lost on 16 and our second away pairing of John Carroll & Michael Gaughran fought bravely from 4 down to eventually loose on 17. Three wins at home were now required and with Dermot Whiston & John Gogavan getting us a point on 15 ( 4&3) and Maurice Phelan & Paul Cahill also winning by a margin of 3&2 it all came down to the George Hughes & Chris Corrigan match. A solid front 9 had George & Chis in touch with their opposition but unfortunately they lost their match and the tie on the 16th, 3&2.
Hard luck to Pat, Joe and all the team.
