Half time in Cecil Ewing Connacht Final
Its half time in the Cecil Ewing Connacht Final after last Saturdays first leg in Carrick the tie is nicely poised with Carrick holding the lead 3-2. First off on Saturday Collie Griffin & Declan Loftus, they got a bad start which got progressively worse and were eventually beaten on 14 by Roscommon Club Captain John Cunningham & Tom Og O’Brien. Tom Daly & Denis Flynn got a good start and were ahead early on only to be pulled back to level mid round amid the shenanigans of the 9th hole, Carrick went ahead on the 13 2 up on 14 and closed out the match with a chip in on 17. Sean Gilmartin & Shane Kelly started well got better & won with the old dog licence 7/6. Donal Hanly & Gerry McDermott had a very tight match until they got to 11 where they went on a 5 hole winning run to win on 15 4/3. The bottom match of Eamonn McGirl & Joe Bruen was also a tight affair, a couple of missed putts by the Carrick lads let Roscommon ahead on the back 9 and they won on 16 4/2. So its all to play for on Saturday next Sept 8th in Roscommon at 1pm. We had good support out last week and hopefully we will have the same in Roscommon, good luck to Captain John Coffey & the team.
