Match Reports

TEAM 1 VERSUS TEAM 8

The headline match between the two top socring teams from week one was a close affair. Team Eight, captained by Jim Minnis, won by five points (221 – 216).

Behind top-scoring Brian Knox, Kieran McGreevey had 34 points, Trevor Mulholland 33, Bertie Shaw 33, Jim Minnis 29, Ashton Clydesdale 27 and Dermot Magee 27.

That added up to 221 points, just about good enough to beat Philip Strong’s Team One.

TEAM 2 VERSUS TEAM 3

Team Two, captained by Sean McGreevey, scored 204 points. It wasn’t all that good a total. In fact, it was the second lowest team score of the round. But, as luck would have it, they were drawn to play against Team Three who could only manage 202 points.

McGreevey wasn’t complaining as he himself scored 32 points, the best on his team.

TEAM 4 VERSUS TEAM 5

Team 5 were the early favourites to win the Winter League title this year. They were unlucky to lose their opening match but they made no mistake this week, recording the best team total of the round - 224 points - enough to see of their opponents.

TEAM 6 VERSUS TEAM 7

This match brought the first draw of the Winter League so far, the teams tied on 220 points. Team Seven had seven scores in the 30s, Paul McCullough and Darren Baker both bagging 33 points. They must have expected to win after that performance but Team Six ehld their own, led by two 34s by John Convery and Malcolm Russell.
