St Pats shine in home competition
The clubs who attended the national championship hosted by St. pats in Carrickmacross were Ballinastoe, Clonmany, Cuan Rithe, Gort na Cloiche, Kiltevna, Mountain View, St Pats, Spateltons & Taughmaconnell.
The teams who qualified for the men’s 680kg semi finals were Clonmany, Cuan Rithe, Mountain View & St Pats. St Pats overcame Cuan Rithe in straight ends in the first semi final to qualify for the final. The second semi final between Clonmany & Mountain View was a very entertaining match-up with Mountain View taking the first end. The Clonmany lads showed great determination to come back and book a place in the final after a third and deciding end. The final between Clonmany and St Pats was a reasonably comfortable contest for St Pats who once again showed their superiority over their rivals this season with a straight end victory.
Mountain View defeated Cuan Rithe to win the bronze medal. The teams who qualified for the Div 2 final were Gort na Cloiche and Stapeltons. Stapeltons were on a high after their victory in the 720kg two weeks ago but it was the GnaC team who produced a great performance to overcome Stapeltons with a straight end victory and win the gold medal. The five teams who qualified for the men’s 5-a-side semi finals were Clonmany, Cuan Rithe, Mountain View & St Pats. Cuan Rithe and St. Pats enjoyed straight end victories over Mountain View and Clonmany respectively to qualify for the final. St Pats won the gold medal with Cuan Rithe runners-up while Clonmany won the bronze medal.
Once again, the St Pats ladies who are preparing for next summers World Games were very strong taking the maximum 7 points in both the 540kg and the 340kg leagues. St Pats combined with their men’s team also took maximum points in round 2 of the mixed 600kg league. Clonmany were very strong again in the second round of the youth league taking the 7 points with GnaC getting 6 points for finishing runners-up.
