Munster League Rounds 10 and 11

Yesterday saw mixed results for Ennis in the Munster League. In the first match against CCYMS both teams were missing regular players. Ennis needed to win to ensure we stayed top of the table while CCYMS were battling to propel themselves into contention and they took the points in a close match.

CCYMS 3 -2 Ennis
1. G McCarthy 0-1 R Quinn
2. P O’Donovan 1-0 D Ruchko
3. P Dowdall 1-0 A Nguyen
4. D Geaney-O’Brien 1-0 N Larter
5. T Myers 0-1 J Cassidy

In the second match we beat Limerick and Sarsfields did us a favour by beating Adare which meant we kept a narrow lead at the top of the table heading into the final series of matches. It looks like being a close finish for the title with a number of teams still in contention.

Ennis 4-1 Limerick
1. R Quinn 1-0 N McDonnell
2. D Ruchko 1-0 R O’Brien
3. A Nguyen 0-1 D Fanning
4. N. Larter 1-0 T Dineen
5. J Cassidy 1-0 H Prasad

The B team had 2 wins against a Dungarvan team that defaulted Board 5. They are likely to be battling with Charleville for the top spot in Division 2.

Ennis B 5-0 Dungarvan
1. A Daly 1-0 E Lambden
2. G Casey 1-0 J Lucey
3. A Shamsiddinov 1-0 I Gordon
4. D Murphy 1-0 P O’Mahoney
