John Browne reports on the final match of Oakland’s winter league which was fished on Sunday…

We had the final round of the Ger Hennesy Winter league on Sunday. It was tight going into the final day to decide the overall winner with 4 still with a chance of winning it. It was a miserable morning with wind and rain and the main contenders were hoping for a good draw.

The match winner on the day was Leo Lynch who made the best of his end peg draw. He knew he needed a section win to give him a fighting chance of winning overall and bagged 88.260kg on Section B. It was great effort but he fell just short by the narrowest of margins.

Ronan Minogue, also on Section B and leading the League overall, nipped into 2nd place with just 19.550kg. The 2 league points that Ronan picked up meant that he and Leo both finished on 9 points overall, but some big catches earlier in the series saw Ronan winning on weight.

Not far behind finishing on 10 points and 3rd overall was Kieran Reeves.
