Kilkenny College Senior Boys Golf team progressed to the Semi Finals of the Leinster section of the Irish Schools matchplay with a hard fought 3½ - 1½ victory against Gonzaga College.
The match which took place at Beech Park Golf Club last week, in horrendous weather conditions, was in the balance right to the end as Joshua Glass won his match on the 16th for a 3 and 2 victory which provided the vital third point which guaranteed the win. This added to wins in the first and last match by Brendan Dowling, 9 and 7 and Harry Duggan 6 and 4 respectively. The fourth match went to Gonzaga as Ross Steedman lost 6 and 5 to his opponent. With the result already decided the third match was called in with the match halved as a result. The victory, the reverse result of last year’s final sees Kilkenny College into the semi-final where they will take on either Blackrock College, Malahide or St Andrew’s College in the New Year.
