Pat Broderick, Kinsale, qualified for the final of the Reenascreena club's junior C/novice 1 tournament with a hard earned victory over Lisbealed's Sean O'Riordan on Saturday last. Their semi-final joust on the Tullig Road had passages of brilliant bowling and it was O'Riordan who looked most likely having beaten 'O'Sullivan's bungalow' in seven well thrown shots.
Broderick was accurate too in this segment and contained the leading man to the extent that the margin between them was no more that fifty metres. O'Riordan then had the misfortune to see two in succession whipped off leaving Broderick now to the fore.
The Lisbealed man hit a marvellous tenth in a game effort to regain the front spot but, when Broderick defiantly beat that mark by seventy metres, a place in the final was beckoning for the Kinsale man. He closed the contest out with a splendid eleventh and will play tournament favourite, Raymond Ryan, in the decider at Reenascreena on Saturday afternoon next.Carbery's underage stars are currently involved in the new series of tournaments at the Phale Road. In U16 Brendan Crowley won a thrilling contest with Darren Santry and also participating were Diarmuid O'Callaghan, Martin Collins, Shane Shannon, Jack Breen, Brigit McCarthy and Isobel Shannon.
