Joe McNally League: Race 2 – Report by Adrian O Sullivan
“The Power of three”
After 3 laps of an unforgiving 2017 opening league race in Clonalvy last night, Ken Power powered up the final straight to claim first place in what was his debut scratch race. Overcast and muddy conditions set the tone for an already difficult circuit on which semi scratch managed to stay away from their chasers. The final sprint was a close contest with Brian Bredican taking an excellent 2nd and Karl McKenna in 3rd.
David Hickey took first by a couple of lengths with Keith Nixon putting in a relentless last lap effort to catch semi limit and take 2nd overall.
