Narrow loss by Heidenfeld team 3.5-4.5 vs ballinsaloe, wins for Kristof, Marius and draws for Art, Fergal and Tom. Tom, Fergal and Micheal were unlucky, and a narrow loss is a great result.
Our next game is a tough away match against Celbridge, who have been in the armstrong in recent years, so every point counts.
A depleted Armstrong Cup team lost 5-3 to Bray last night. Excellent wins for subs Bogdan and Mohammad, draws for Kevin and Conor. Thanks to the subs Bogdan, Mohammad, Tom and Micheal for playing.
On a funny note our two victor on the night and one of our draws came from the guys who were late due to the traffic being so bad, but they made up for the 40+ minutes or so they were down on time and contributed to a great result.
Good luck to our Armstrong Cup, Heidenfeld Trophy and O’Hanlon Cup teams in this years Leinster Leagues.
