Joy for Balt­in­glass

Bray People - - SPORT -

THERE were scenes of re­lief and joy in Corrstown on Mon­day af­ter a mam­moth bat­tle that ended with vic­tory af­ter the sixth hole of sud­den death when Balt­in­glass pair Fer­gal Doogue and Nathan Ger­aghty Byrne sealed their place in the Le­in­ster fi­nal of the Jimmy Bruen Shield.

Two home vic­to­ries by Derek Byrne and Owen Cooney and Neil Pat­ter­son and Stephen Mann were fol­lowed by two away de­feats for Brian Lord and Johnny Keogh and Niall Doogue and Robert McHugh Jnr.

That left Fer­gal Doogue and Nathan Ger­aghty Byrne who were all flat af­ter 20 holes on the Sun­day be­fore fad­ing light forced them to re­turn on Mon­day morn­ing.

Back they went to Corrstown in Dublin and they claimed a won­der­ful vic­tory on the 24th hole to send them to the fi­nal where they will meet Wex­ford Golf Club in the com­ing weeks.
