Our Heidenfeld trophy side had an excellent narrow away win (4.5 – 3.5) against a highly rated Blanchardstown side. Wins for Conor, Colm, Art and Mick Germaine, and a draw for Dave. Dario and Michael were very unlucky in their games, and on board one, John got some revenge against Kevin, for last years win.
Onwards and upwards. Our next game is a North Dublin derby versus Elm Mount.
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.
