Irish Mixed Foursomes team win a nail-biting match against Malahide
Well done to the Irish Mixed Foursomes team who won a nail-biting match against Malahide Golf Club on Sunday 31st March.
The third and final match in Malahide went down to the fifth extra hole with super golf played by both teams. In the end the Skerries pair of Sylvia Alcock and Miley Plunkett held their nerve to secure the vital third win of the tie.
Earlier (much earlier!) Joan O’Brien & Martin Coleman and Noreen Giblin & Peter Kenny had won in Skerries playing some great golf.
This left the three matches in Malahide to decide the tie. Skerries met very strong opposition as we have come to expect from Malahide and the first two matches were lost with Aisling Ryan & Mark O’Donoghue and Bridgeen Kiernan & Paul O’Donoghue giving the home side a good battle.
It was two matches all with Sylvia and Miley’s match suddenly becoming the one to watch. WhatsApp was used to great effect allowing those in Skerries to follow the match blow by blow and delight in a great win in the end – Final result 3:2 to Skerries.
Next up is Beaverstown Golf Club with three matches in Skerries and two away.
