Cecil Ewing Connacht Semi Final
Saturday August 18th 2012
John Coffey’s Cecil Ewing team pulled off the Houdini act of the summer against Tuam last Saturday afternoon. With 2 games at home & three away the task was always going to be a tough one, but it was made harder when we lost a home game Donal Hanly & Gerry McDermott lost 4/3, and the three matches away were heading the same way, with Declan Loftus & Collie Griffin two down with two to play and Eamonn McGirl & Joe Bruen one down with 4 to play, the third match of Tom Daly & Denis Flynn having lost. With the Tuam supporters wondering who they were playing in the final, Griffin & Loftus won 17,18 and 19 to tie the match 2-2 Paul O’Brien & Shane Kelly having won the other match at home 4/3. Bruen & McGirl pulled back the deficit & went ahead on 17, halved 18 in bogey’s to claim their match and a final place for Carrick since their last in 2007.
