The unbelievably brilliant TJ's A mauled the Sheepy's 5-1. The Bowling Ally club were lambs to the slaughter from the minute they found out Pat Brady wouldn't be available for the final. It was literally shooting ducks in a barrel as the Sheepbridge lads flapped about getting picked off one by one.
Any chance Sheepbridge had was reliant on both Paddy Tavey and Harvey Lavelle both winning but however small the chance was it evaporated after the 1st frame. Laurence McAlinden put TJ's 1 up and effectively ended the match as a contest when he beat the 'out of sorts' Paddy Tavey. N.Irish international Tavey had no answer to the in-form McAlinden's superb potting.
Harvey Lavelle is 1 of the biggest names in the Newry and Dristict Pool league. Jack Courtney was a beaten docket when he saw the draw. Courtney is and has been a brilliant player for TJ's A but Lavelle always has the measure of him and it was no surprise the ex-corrinshego ace levelled the scores
Declan McMahon v Niall McVerry was the perfect match up - for TJ's A. McVerry might have had a chance against one of the weaker TJ's players but McMahon has too much in his locker and the result was never in doubt. 2-1 TJ's A.
Manny Byrne came up against an old Corrinshego rival in Bernie Magee. The tactical genius Magee couldn't prevent the free potting Byrne from making it 3-1. Raymie McKenna put the mighty TJ's on the hill after he beat the hapless Barry Duffy. The result was a forgone conclusion but who was going to strike the killer blow?
Tristan 'The Typhoon' Byrne started the season in blistering form but it's fair to say he blew him self out as he's ran out of steam a bit. But he probably couldn't believe his luck when he was drawn to play Bernard McVerry to wrap up the Vegas Cup. Byrne is a quality dart player and had a decent Carnbane league soccer career but it is in the world of Pool where he truly excels. McVerry had no answer to the superb Byrne and the TJ's A legend wrapped up 2 out of 2 trophies and only a miracle will prevent 4 from 4.
Sheepbridge had a decent season. Runners up in the league and runner up in the Vegas Cup. That's their season over and whether this team stays together or not they should be fairly proud of their achievements this season.
As for TJ's A they march on in pursuit of the double quadruple!
