the fourth match on the 19th.The two nominated players then played sudden death from the first hole and this was a rematch of the first pairing with Barry Connor taking on Peter Doherty of

last.Trailing 4-1 from the away leg the home team knew what they had to do and with the first pairing of Mark Bradley & Brendan McGee.Three down with three to play the task looked even more difficult but winning the Par 5 16th was vital and then a Par at the long Par 3 17th.Was enough to make it up the last where Mark Bradley produced a brilliant birdie four to halve the match from where Rosapenna would  claim the next four games to reach the necessary 4.5 matches.This was a great effort from all the players against a very strong Ballybofey/S side.Well done to the team captain Garvin Toye and
