Sarsfields win Munster League

The 2017/2018 season of the Munster League finished on Saturday in Charleville. Two teams were in with a chance of winning the title. CCYMS were going for a first Munster League title in 25 years and were slightly ahead of Sarsfields going into the final day.
Just one round was left to play and Sarsfields beat Limerick 3.5 to 1.5, with wins by Frank Noonan and Paul Kiely giving them the points as the other games were drawn. It also gave them the title as Cork A beat CCYMS 3-2 in their match.
We had a win over Charleville to finish fourth. A good result to finish the season but a slow start meant we were playing catch up for most of the season. Sarsfields victory over Limerick meant that Limerick and Cork B will go into the playoff with Division Two winners Tralee.
Ennis results from yesterday.

Ennis A 3.5:1.5 Charleville
1. R Quinn 1-0 PJ Rea
2. M O’Donnell 1-0 K Cole
3. J Cassidy 0.5-0.5 K Foley
4. P Quinlan 0-1 A King

Penultimate round of Munster League 2018

Some interesting results in todays Munster League. Charleville caused a shock in the first match of the day with a win over Sarsfields, a result which blew the chase for the title wide open and also had an impact on the relegation battle. Cork A were missing two players for their match with ourselves, a bit surprising considering they still had a chance to win the league. We won over the 3 boards that were played to give ourselves an outside shot at the title if we had beaten CCYMS in the last match. Unfortunately from our point of view a close match ended in a tie, Gerry Casey won in the last game to finish to ensure the points were shared.

The battle for first place looks like it will go down to the final series of games. CCYMS are still in a good position to win the title and also Sarsfields depending on how they finished in their second match this evening against Cork B.

Cork A 1-4 Ennis A
1. G Spyropoulos 0-1 R Quinn
2. T McGrath 0-1 M O’Donnell
3. S Lawrence 1-0 M Buckley
4. w/o 0-1 G Casey
5. w/o 0-1 A Shamsiddinov

CCYMS 2.5-2.5 Ennis A
1. K Moynihan 1-0 R Quinn
2. P O’Donovan 0.5-0.5 M O’Donnell
3. G McCarthy 0.5-0.5 M Buckley
4. P Dowdall 0-1 G Casey
5. T Myers 0.5-0.5 A Shamsiddinov

Latest Munster League Results

Ennis had one match today and it turned out to be a very competitive one going right down to the wire. A win for Gerry Casey and a draw by John Cassidy had us a point ahead before James Naughton equalised the scores with a win over Nick Larter. I put us in the lead again although Niall McDonnell probably missed a chance to consolidate an extra pawn at one point. This meant the result of the match depended on the result of Paul Carey vs Mike O’ Donnell. This turned into a bit of a marathon as it lasted over 4.5 hours and I’m not sure how many moves. It looked like Mike missed a win in the late middlegame and it could have ended in a draw but Paul managed to take the win and the match ended in a draw.

Limerick 2.5-2.5 Ennis A
1. N McDonnell 0-1 R Quinn
2. J Naughton 1-0 N Larter
3. P Carey 1-0 M O Donnell
4. R O’Brien 0.5-0.5 J Cassidy
5. T Jennings 0-1 G Casey
