Last week saw the end of Portsalon’s quest for glory in this season’s Donegal League over 50’s competition. The return leg against Rosapenna golf club was played on Wednesday evening in glorious sunshine. Team captain Joe Harkin and his team had a lot to do to overturn a five match lead. The games were all evenly matched and Joe’s captaincy came to end as the first match ended on the 16th green in favour of Rosapenna. Indeed the quality in this first match as the Rosapenna pair of Con and Pat Bocce were six under the Portsalon pair of D P Logue and John Sweeney were four under quality golf at its very best. The team captain Joe Harkin congratulated Rosapenna and wished them well in the next round. He thanked all the players who participated in this seasons event and had a special thanks to those who were called in at the last minute. Club Captain DP Logue congratulated Rosapenna and praised both teams for the friendship which was evident in all the matches.
The Portsalon team in the Ulster fourball travelled to Rockmount on Sunday last for their return leg match. Leading by three matches to two from the first leg it left a lot to do for the Kingdom team The team were defeated by four matches to one which left the overall score six matches to four in favour of Rockmount. Hugh Mc Ginley would like to thank all who played and represented Portsalon in this seasons Ulster Fourball competition. In the senior league Portsalon had a short journey to Letterkenny for the return leg match on Monday evening last. Leading by five matches to two from the first leg This was always going to be a major task. The Portsalon team got off to a great start as Eamon Mc Dermott won by 3 & 2. The excitement was building as Pascal Cullen was two down with two to play and he won the two remaining holes to take the match into additional holes. Then it the turn of D P Logue to enter he was one down with three to play and he ended all square. Pascal Cullen halved the first tie hole and teed off on the second as D P Logue gained victory on the first tie hole with par. This left the overall result in Portsalons favour, who will now meet either Rosapenna or Ballyliffen in the next round.
