Comments Off on Seabreeze Bar & Restaurant Winter League round-up 13/02/2011
Competitors enjoyed bright mild conditions on Sunday and scoring was generally very good. Most sections have now reached the critical phase where every point gained or lost could have crucial consequences for qualification.
Section A
Maxwell/Muir are now the only unbeaten pairing in the competition but lost their 100% record following a high scoring draw with Carroll/Roussilhe. Kennedy/Kelly are in second spot on 15 pts. Harte/McGuirk and Higgins/Corcoran on 13 pts lead the race for third spot.
Section B
Gerry Leonard and Aiden Kerins continue their fine run and are clear leaders on 18 pts. Gannon/Cunningham look comfortable on 16 while a great individual performance from Paddy Martin saw himself and partner Gerry McMorrow defeat Howley/Fox and replace them in third spot.
Section C
This section is still very tight. Dykes/McCaffrey and the Rooneys share top spot on 16 pts with Monaghan/McManus, sickness the Basquilles and Gillen/Garrett only a point behind. Watters/Kivlehan are still close enough to benefit from any slip-ups by the front runners.
Section D
Cadden/Probst are still to the fore sharing top spot with Murphy/Campion on 16 pts just a single point ahead of Carr/Mannion and Coyne/Howley. A special mention for veteran Tony Mannion who in the absence of partner Ken Carr saw off the strong pairing of Lee/Derrig who now need a strong finish to reach automatic qualification.
Section E
Section E remains the most intriguing and closely fought of all. Defending champions Frank and Ronnie Conlon take a one point lead at the top but with seven pairs within four points of them this section will go to the wire.
Section F
Durkin/Leggett suffered their first reverse of the campaign going down to Meehan/O’Donnell but still lead on 18 pts. Ruane/English on 15 pts are next best, ask with the Gerritys, price the Coxs and Tivnan/Fox scrapping for that vital third spot.
Section G
Keane/Kivlehan continue to lead and look safe despite their first defeat. Surprisingly every pair in this section is still in with a chance of at least reaching the play-off round.
Section H
It’s all change in this section with Gray/Keaney and Nicholson/ O’Rourke now on top. The latter continued their steady rise with an impressive win over Stewart/Halloran who now drop back with early pace-setters Mullins/O’Mahoney.
Section I
Glynn/White are safe and clear on 19 pts. Farrell/McGrath hold second spot 4 pts back with Wehrly/Fox and Doherty/Higgins next best. The run-in in this section favours Wehrly/Fox who we expect to see in the final.
