Match play semi-finals decided.

The top four teams which qualified for the semi- finals of the spring league have been decided. Team 1 will play team 6 at 11am on Sunday 26th February while team 5 will meet team2 at 1.30pm.

In any competition there are hard luck stories and for team 4 there is a case for “what if” or “if only”. Languishing in last position for the first three weeks they zoomed back into contention but fell just 4 points short of making the semi-finals.

Details of the semi-finals’ matches may be seen on the Blacklion golf website but there are some mouth-watering ties: Peter Cumisky v Eugene Walsh in semi-final 1 is the pick of the matches, while in the second semi, Gareth McMorris v Ciaran Maguire will be a tasty tie. However my match of the day is Patsy McCorry v Sean Flanagan. Patsy is in top form but the wily Sean may have a trick up his sleeve.

Joe Keaney won the individual prize for week 5 on countback from Stephen Garvey. Both shot 34 points.
