“Patsy Corr Three-A-Sides Cup in Hibs Club”:


This week saw the preliminary round of the Patsy Corr cup take place in the Hibs showrooms. There were 28 teams there all vying to get through to the next round and next weeks semi’s & final.

Board One

Match One

Star Celtic “B” 0 vs 2 Crumlin Star “A”

Peter Fitzpatrick and Tony Kelly were drew against each other in the singles with Peter just edging it. This left Star Celtic’s Henry McTasney Jnr & Daniel Haywood with the difficult task of facing Crumlin’s Dougie Bowes & Seamy Martin to try and take it to the trebles game but they found this task to great as Crumlin win this and went through 0 vs 2. Unfortunately there were no high scores, finishes or 180’s written on half of the match-cards for me to make comment on. If completing cards please put all these on them so I can report the quality of the games.

Match Two

Clonard Hibs “B” 2 vs 0 Swilly “B”

This game had three of both clubs best throwers but once again no scores etc so I can do nothing more than report the result. Tommy Fitzpatrick won the singles for Clonard against Kevin O’Neill and John Doyle along with Pearse Maguire won the doubles beating father & son pairing Tom & Tucker Kearney.

Match Three

Donegal Celtic “A” 2 vs 0 Casey’s “B”

Sean Armstrong played the singles for D/C and he beat Olcan Kearney of Casey’s. The pairing of James McStravick & Chinky Smith then put them through by beating Casey pair of Gerard Holmes & Eugene Brannigan.

Board Two

Match One

Hibs 58 “C” 0 vs 2 Casement “D”

Paddy McGuiness beat Jap Craig in the first game of singles then watched as his doubles team of Kieran McGuiness & C McGuiness beat Hibs pairing of Paddy Dempsey & Jim Boardman to put them through till next week.

Match Two

Casement “B” 2 vs 1 Swilly “A”

In the second match on this board we had the first game of the night to go to the “Trebles game”. Paul Goodman got a great win against Gerry McCormick for the Swilly and Ricky Saddler & Paul Condon levelled with a doubles win over Patrick & Felix McGeown. The trebles was a close run affair but the Casement trio came out winners.

Match Three

Hibs 58 “D” 1 vs 2 St. Mathews “C”

I marked this one so I can testify to the nerves being shredded both by players and their supporters. Adam Lynch threw good darts in the singles leg to beat Gerard McGuiness. The doubles went first one way then the other and both teams had multiple attempts at doubles with Mick McCartan eventually popping double one with his doubles partner Chip Craig to level the game against Sean Patterson Jnr and Seanpol McKernan. The trebles game was exactly the same but St. Mats experience eventually told and they went through to next week.

Board Three

Match One

St. Mats “B” 2 vs 0 Swilly “D”

Seamus Roberts (25) 100, 100, 100 beat Dan Walker in the singles leg. In the doubles the talented and experienced team of Jap McKinley & Joe O’Kane then beat Swilly’s Conal Crawford and Mick Sullivan to put themselves through without too much trouble.

Match Two

Star Celtic “C” 0 vs 2 Donegal Celtic “C”

This was another game that didn’t need the trebles game as a decider. Joe Corr beat Martin Maloney and their pairs team of Alan Hanna & Caolan Kearney beat Henry McTasney Snr & Daniel Anderson for a 0 vs 2 win

Match Three

Casement “A”1 vs 2 Swilly “C”

In this singles game Paul Wisdom turned back the clock and took out Brendan McStravick even though he must give his younger opponent 40 years start. Eamo Mac & Mick Burns levelled the game taking the doubles against Martin Lawlor & John Quinn and the Suffolk team used their youth and fitness to outlast Casement in the trebles to win the last game.

Board Four

Match One

Hibs 58 “B” 2 vs 1 Casement “C”

The first game on board four went to the trebles. Damien Corbett beat Henry McCann in the singles. Micky Tierney & Venti Lenzi then levelled it taking the doubles against Tony Corr & Sean Patterson. The trebles was a very tense affair and with Henry McCann sitting on X16 Damien Corbett took out a brilliant 92 finish with his last dart to put the Hibs team through.

Match Two

St. Mats 2 vs 0 D/C “B”

This match pitched one of the favourites for the trophy in against a bit of an unknown quantity as D/C had an old favourite of the league back playing in Paddy McCrory. His first game back was in the singles and he was shown no mercy at all as Martin Irwin (24) 101 Fin took it. Their pairing of Davy McCusker 180 & Billy McDade then made it 2 vs 0 taking out Matt Doone & Paul Doone.

Match Three

Clonard Hibs “A” 2 vs 0 Clonard Hibs “C”

This game paired two teams from Clonard Hibs against one and other. The difference between the A and C teams was evident from the off as Adam McDade (18) 87 fin took the first against Anto Officer and Conor Hanna & Dan Delaney made it 2 vs 0 with their doubles victory over John McCann & Anto Smith.

Match Four

Casement “E” 0 vs 2 Crumlin Star “B”

John Dillon (26) 125, 100, 100, 85 continued his good form this season with a great win in the singles game over Sean Kerr 85, 83, 83, 60. He then watched his teammates Ben Lagan & Jim Flannigan 100, 100, 81 win the doubles as well beating Joe Doone & Pat Burns 140, 100, 86, 85 to put them through to finals night next Wednesday

Match Five

Casey’s “A” 1 vs 2 Crumlin Star “C”

Matt Boyle 100, 85, 81, 80 won the first game against Peter McAlorum 100, 85, 81 only to see Freddie Stilges & Hugh Grieves 117, 95, 95, 78, 69 level it in beating Paul Smyth & Dan Cahoon 135, 100, 100, 85, 85. The Trebles game must have been a cracker, just going by the scores hit, as Crumlin’s team hit scores of 140, 140, 121, 98, 60, 60 to beat Casey’s treble teams scores of 100, 100, 100, 85, 85, 60 to progress to next week on a 1 vs 2 scoreline.


*All teams please be at the Hibs rooms next Wednesday early as the finals night kicks off at 9pm*

Best of luck to all teams left...Sean P
