Duggan Cup boys over the 1st hurdle

Dave Callaghan marshaled his Duggan Cup team to an excellent 3 2 win on Saturday afternoon against Baltinglass GC. Blessington lakes won all their 3 matches at home, an excellent performance seeing that they had to give their opponents shots in each match. Winners at home were Donie McEvoy/Cormac Noone, Ray Murphy/Diarmuid McCarthy and Brian Hogan/Brendan Flynn. Our away pairings of Joey Donohoe/Tonly Hanlon and Vincent Chapman/Tom Bealin also had to give shots to their opponents but unfortunately both pairings lost in tight matches. Team manager Dave congratulated the team on their performance but also made the point that players need to perform well in competition between now and the next round in order to keep their places. We will be away to the winners of the game between Athy GC and Newbridge GC.
