Meath Pool League focus - second round

Action from the game in Carnaross

Action continued in the Meath Pool League  last week with games in Div 1 and Div 2.

Chaser A and Alfie's played their delayed first round game midweek of last week and it was well worth waiting for with three ex-Irish internationals and one current international playing so the standard was exceptionally high. 

Alife's took a 2-0 lead as David Burns had the edge on Tommy Henry while Kenny Martin shaded Peter Smith. 

Chaser got back into contention with a six-ball finish and then Eoin Henry stepped up with a fantastic performance against another ex Irish International Gabriel Caffery to leave it 2 -2. 

Alfie’s came back with wins for Clint O’Reilly and Mark Caffery to lead 4-2 at the break.

Chaser needed a big effort and managed four straight wins in the doubles with Willie Reilly and Jim Fenhan leaving it 6-4 to the Chaser A. The Chaser only needed one of the last two frames to win, but under tremendous pressure Mark Caffery and David Burns won their match then on a last frame shoot-out AO

Farrely and Gabriel Caffery took the win to leave it 6-6 and a point to each team.

On Friday Alfie’s had to play Fox’s A and were in form as they took a strong lead in the singles with a win for Kennth Martin against David McQullian. 

Wins for David Burns, AO Farrely and Larry Murrtagh had Alfie’s 4-2 ahead, but Fox’s bounced back with a smashing effort to win the next three doubles. 

There was another twist to the games when Alfie’s won the next two to leave it 6-5.

The final game was left to David Burns and Larry Murrtagh to beat Tom Duignan and Ciaran Wallace.

Balreask B defeated Thornes 7-2 with strong performances from Tino Borez, Tony Gilkeson and Joe McKeever. 

Carnaross Inn hosted Bective B . With Kevin Mynes and Eugene Yore winning Carnaross went 2-0 up. However, Micheal Dennehy and Declan Smyth made it 2-2 after some fine finishing. Again Carnaross and Bective B traded frames with John McMahon breaking and finishing without missing a shot in what was a fantastic display potting all eight balls. Carnaross took the next four frames with Pat Lynch and Paul Dunne securing a fine victory on a 7-3 scoreline.
