Borrisoleigh Track-Attack Notes – Buffalos Charge Ahead

Mick O’Connor’s Buffalos team were the supreme predators in the third round of the Track-Attack Safari Team Trek which is been kindly sponsored by Camsaw Distributers Ltd (main suppliers of OleoMac and Weibang lawnmowers) and as a result, they are the early leaders with a 25 point lead over the Hyenas outfit who are captained by Joe Holland.

Track-Attackers Donal Ryan and Tom Shanahan

With 7 of a team’s 9 members scoring on a given night, The Buffalos charged to the fore with some very impressive performances with each of their scoring members recording a positive tally towards their teams overall accumulation of points.

One of Track-Attacks newest comers Donal Ryan was joined by Marie Madden in recording the maximum 60 points following an excellent display by both athletes. Rena Ryan chipped in with 47 points while young-guns Luke Cooney and Conor Keane caught the eye with their performances when recording totals of 41 and 40 points respectfully. Siobhan Carey added a further 33 points while team captain Mick O’Connor contributed to the team’s early supremacy with a haul of 29 points.

Joe Holland is priming his Hyena team nicely for an opposition onslaught and are sitting in the long grass waiting to pounce on any movers encroaching in their space! Joe himself led by example on the night, striding it out and recording the top 60 point total. He was equalled in his impressiveness by another debutant Track-Attacker in Jamie Ryan who also covered the course in superb form while also nailing the maximum haul. On the night they also had impressive performances by Aoife O’Meara (52), Paudie McGrath (27) and Evelyn Groome who accumulated 22 points.

Track-Attackers Joanne and Kate Minogue

A single point is the difference between the third and fourth placed teams with Sean OG Hayes’ Leopards team grasping that podium placing. Ailbe Cummins and John Maher were the teams outstanding performers on the night with both claiming the maximum 60 points. They were closely followed by the impressive Adam Galvin with a total of 58 while Kate Bourke (33) and Joey O’Dwyer (31) also contributed handsomely to their overall haul of 258 points.

Paul Boyle, Noreen Ryan and Dylan Fahy were all in flying form for the Impalas outfit and their maximum scores greatly helped the Cian Murphy led team to fourth place on 257 points. Tom Delaney’s Antelope team make up the top 5 thanks in chief to the performance of Templederry’s Edel Minogue coupled with that of the brilliant Gabrielle Hodgins. Olivia Murphy, Marie McGrath and Philip Rabbitte also impressed on the night and with a total of 213 points, they’re poised to have a major say in the eventual outcome of the title.

With 7 weeks of action still remaining, all is still to play for. A big gap between teams can be closed out in a very short space of time due to a team being capable of recording 510 points on a given night. On top of that, bonus points are on offer at various stages of the series starting with round 4 when any team that have 5 of their members recording a PB will receive a 50 point bonus. Don’t forget that any team that have all 9 members of their team present on a night receive a bonus of 90 points.
