Following the team’s success against near neighbours Warrenpoint, the team played the second round against Blackwood & Mahee. Home advantage was with Kilkeel for this round with 3 matches at home and 2 away.
The in-form Damian O’Connor & Aaron Mackey led the way in the first match out at home. A 2 hole lead was established early on and that advantage was never relinquished eventually winning by 3&2
The second match saw Mathew Gibney with partner James Greene and like the top match an early established lead was maintained winning by 6&4
The last match saw the ever reliable Vice-Captain Paschal Morgan partner Leslie Edgar and again the pairing was never in trouble winning by 5&4.
With the home pairing completing a clean sweep, the away results were not crucial however a tremendous win was secured by Liam O’Hare & James Hanna 6&4
The remaining pairing of Trevor Weir & Alexander Morrow succumbed to a 3&2 defeat.
A great result by the boys and now Bangor are the opposition in the next round
Thanks to Team Captain Conall Kerr for his efforts arranging the team and Matches.
