CLONARD HIBS WIN EDDIE CORBETT CUP

The Crumlin Star rooms were packed for the semi-finals and final of the Eddie Corbett Cup with a 701

format. The draw saw St Matthews’s versus Donegal Celtic and Hibs 58 versus Clonard Hibs

In the first semi St Matthews raced into a 4 0 lead thanks to Joe McAttamney, then man of the match

Con Kielty, hitting 180/125 /100, Pat McGahan and John Considine who beat Harry Smith, Alan Hanna,

Kevin O’ Carroll and Gerard Smith respectively. DC took the next two legs thanks to Paddy

McGuinness and Patrick McGeown beating Billy McDade and Jap McKinley. The next game saw

Jimmy Lavery beat the unlucky Matt Doon to make the result 5 2 to St Matthews

The next semi started with a man of the match performance from Davy McCusker beating Conor

Toner in 28 darts. Clonard Hibs raced into a 3 1 lead through Dan Delaney, Conor Hanna and Adam

McDade, beating Mark Lynch, Martin Mooney and Tony Corr. Not to be outdone Hibs 58 took the next

three to go 4 3 ahead thanks to some great darts from Martin Corbett, Peter McDonnell Snr and

Tucker Clarke taking care of Dan Sloan, Kevin Campbell and Pearce Maguire. Not over yet though, as

John McCann stepped up to beat Damien Corbett in a tight game to make it 4 4. The last game saw

Sean Patterson take on Anto Smyth and it was to be Smyth with a solid performance edging out

Patterson to leave the result 5 4 to Clonard Hibs.

Onto the final Clonard Hibs versus St Matthews; There was never more than one game in this the whole

way through and it was Adam McDade beating Joe O ‘Kane with a superb 81 bull finish when needed,

after O’Kane had 5 ton plus scores but could not find the double. Then it was 1 1 with Jap McKinley

beating Anto Smyth in 31darts. Dan Sloan took care of John Considine to make it 2 1. Billy McDade

made it 2 2 beating Pearce Maguire. Up stepped Kevin Campbell to win in 31 darts against Joe

McAttamney in a heavy scoring game, 3 2 Clonard. Next to the oche were John McC ann and Martin

Irwin and it was Irwin with a man of the match performance in 29darts making it 3 3. Dan Delaney

with the help of a 180 beat Jimmy Lavery, where both men had a few darts at a double, but Delaney

makes it 4 3. St Matthews were not going away, and Pat McGahan stepped up to beat Conor Hanna

in a tight finish to send it to the last game 4 4. So, it’s down to the last game and its young Conor

Toner against Con Kielty. It started of nip and tuck, but it was not to finish like that with Toner taking

out a superb 144 finish in 30 darts (T20 T20 D12) to win the trophy for Clonard Hibs

Congratulations to Clonard Hibs, unlucky St Matthews and thanks to the Crumlin Star. Back to the

League next week.
