After an opening day thumping in Enniscorthy, the O’Sullivan racked up a big win of their own on Wednesday night.
After a rather late work schedule change, Mariusz has played his last two Heidenfeld games on his own, and in between the rest of the team playing their games. Last night, he started our round 5 tie against Rathmines B with his first defeat of the season (though he reckons he had a draw), while last Thursday, he rounded off a 6-2 win for the club against Phibsboro with victory over Colm Fitzpatrick. Mariusz was rather pleased with the win, describing it afterwards as one of his best ever wins – and here it is.
A deluge of points since Wednesday means St Benildus – for a few hours at least – are top of three separate divisions. Meanwhile, six of the 11 players with 100% winning records put them on the line – two of them twice – and four of the six remain.
