Joshua Tree record a double with win over the Gallows.

In Section 1 of the CDO Fosters Super league,  the newly assembled Joshua tree (1) team registered their second win in a row by beating newly promoted Gallows bar 5-0.  The Maple leaf won 4-1 against the Local.  Rosies, of Carrigaline, travelled to Mayfield to face Hennessey’s, and returned to Carrigaline with a 3-2 win.

In section 2, the Groves beat Ma Dullea’s 4-1 and Top of the Hill beat the Riverstown Inn 3-2. Quinlans had a bye.

In the 1st division, the Residence were 4-1 winners over the River lane (1). Aunties travelled to the Riverstown Inn and it was the away side that won 4-1.  Riverlane (2) hosted Carrigaline GAA, and it was Carrigaline GAA that won, 3-2.  Hennessy’s (2) travelled to Hannah Bawns.  The home team got off to the perfect start with Glen Casey winning his game 3-0 against Tony Harris. But with two 3-0 wins for Craig O’Dwyer against Gabriel Harris, and Tony Noonan against Glenn O’Driscoll, Hennessy’s fired back and took the lead 2-1. The closest game of the contest was between Roy O’Brien for Hannah Bawns and Mark Ross for Hennessy’s. It was level pegging throughout the game but it was Ross, for Hennessy’s that was first to hit the winning double and registered a 3-2 win. The final game of the evening was Gerry Walsh against Sean McCarthy.  Walsh went 1 up, but McCarthy stepped up his game and won the next 3 legs, securing a 3-1 win and a much needed 4 points for Hennessy’s.

In the 2nd Division, Glenryan (1) Beat the Residence 5-0, the Local beat the Redcove 3-2, the Joshua tree (2) beat the Shamrock 3-2 and the Glenryan (2) had a bye.

In the Junior division, Muskerry Arms won 3-2 against the River lane, the Gallows beat the Fox & Hounds 3-2, Island Tavern beat the Tower 3-2 and Jack Fords won 3-2 against Ma Dullea’s.
