An exciting finish ended the short-mat bowls match between at the Westgate Centre last month. Benefiting from the new mats at Westgate, the home team raced into a significant lead in both matches, but as time and frames progressed, Coachford got to grips with the speed of the mats, and started to ‘pepper the Jack’ with wonderful shot accuracy and cover. Match one was between Biddy Barrett, Felic Barrett, Gerard Ford, Michael Kiely representing Westgate, whilst the Coachford team consisted of Dan Cooney, Ton Stassens, Marie Kelleher, Sheila Donovan Match two was played by Nell Honohan, Pat O’Mahony, Tim Daley, Denis O’Regan for Westgate and Noreen Walsh, Ber O’Leary, Abby Collins, Margaret Lenihan for Coachford. Congratulations to all involved, particularly the wonderful teams from Coachford and Westgate, and umpire for the night Hazel Foley. Special thanks to Biddy and Sheila, and Ann Twohig (Westgate League Organiser for the Cork Indoor Bowls League), to Westgate Security on the night, and to Phil Lynch, Westgate social and activities manager host.
