BGS defeat St. Colman's Midleton in U19 Tennis
11 Feb 2019
Congratulations to the Bandon Grammar School U19 A Tennis team who defeated St. Colman's School, Midleton 4-1 in the first round of the schools shield competition on Monday 11th February.
Captain, Thomas Gale brushed his opponent aside in the first of the singles game 6/0,6/1 before Mateo Barthelemy succumbed to a strong Colman's player 0/6,5/7 in his singles game.
A dogged performance by doubles pairing Anton Frank & Eoin Houston saw Bandon beat their opponents in a championship tie break to give Bandon Grammar a slender 2-1 lead going into the final set of matches.
Needing only 1 win from the final two doubles matches to guarantee victory, an excellent 6/2,6/4 win for doubles pairing Thomas Gale & Anton Frank saw BGS clinch victory before a Mateo & Eoin 7/6,6/3 victory sealed a resounding 4-1 win overall.
Many thanks to Bandon LTC for the use of their facilities for the matches
