The ladies were once more to the fore on Thursday night last as they brought their pre Christmas A division part of the season to a close with the final of the second event of the season being played at the Glenryan Tavern.
The semifinals saw Ma Dulleas prove too strong on the night for the River Lane as they ran out 3-0 winners through Kathleen Doyle, Kathryn Hewitt and Aisling Comey winning against Joanne Mackle, Gillian French and Noreen O’Brien.
Joshua Tree came through on a 3-1 score against the Local as they won the first two games with Eileen Jones defeating Christine O’Mahony and Ciara Haugh had them 2-0 ahead as she accounted for Kay O’Brien but the Local stopped the rot as Martina Murphy won the third game from Kelly Ford but Josh took the fourth as Mary Nugent was a 2-1 winner over Andrea O’Mahony.
The final which followed gave Ma Dulleas a chance to make it two final wins from two, having won the Red Cove Inn A league just a few weeks previous, but the Joshua Tree were not in a benevolent frame of mind as Kelly Ford ran out a 2-1 winner over Kathryn Hewitt and she was followed by team-mate Ciara Haugh who came out ahead of Aisling Comey 2-0 and the trophy was in the bag as Mary Nugent came through against Rita Hannigan 2-1 for a 3-0 overall win to the Joshua Tree.
Other members of the Joshua Tree panel were Eileen Jones, Breda Barrett, Siobhan Keohane, Fiona O’Loughlin and Marion Hayes while Ma Dulleas had Karina Nova, Kathleen Doyle, Louise Doyle and Kala Connolly.
