The first pair of Ed Mulligan and Malachy Quinn got Corballis their first point with a solid 5 &4 win. Match 2 went to Kilmashogue with Brendan McGovern and Kevin Burke getting the away win, leaving Kilmashogue on an aggregate 4.5 needing just one more win to claim victory. Matches 3 and 4 went to Corballis, tying the final at 4.5 each, so it all came down to the final game where Corballis’ Paul Kilberd and his playing partner Joseph McGann sealed the win in dramatic style.
