O'Hanlon Update

Hey again! This is the promised, though unfortunately low on specifics, O'Hanlon update.

The O'Hanlon year started quite brightly, with a heavy win 4.5-1.5 versus Bray/Greystones B, and continued well with a 3.5-2.5 win over St. Benildus, though 1 of the points against was a result of our forfeiting a board, which has been a persistent problem for us over the last few seasons.This left us relatively highly placed after two matches, with 7 wins, 2 draws, 2 losses and a forfeit (which counts as a loss).

Sadly, the next two games, against Bray/Greystones A and Drogheda, didn't turn out so well. Against Bray, an unexpected withdrawal left us with a forfeit and -1 points for not declaring it beforehand, and a tough opposition team yielded little in the way of points to make up for it. The result was 4.5-0.5 (after the deduction) and this was followed up by another loss to Drogheda. Away, to the furthest club from us in the division, we could only muster 5, and so again forfeited a board. The result was 5-1, leading to a lot of work needed to regain a firm footing in the upper regions of the division.

Due to the slowness of the upkeep of the website, the table isn't available, so this rather vague update is all that can be given right now. Stay tuned for more (and more lucid) updates!
