HISTORIC FIRST VICTORY FOR CATALONIA OVER THE IRISH
After ten years and nine international encounters Catalonia has finally recorded a win over Ireland. In a friendly international match this weekend at Platja d'Aro, a brilliant performance by the Catalans in the Sunday singles saw the locals record a 10-6 verdict. The scores were level after day 1, 4 matches each. Ireland led 3-1 after the foursomes but the home side shaded the afternoon fourballs to tie the match overnight. Inspired by long serving Marc Lloret who beat Ireland's No. 1 Ray Murphy in the bottom singles and encouraged by big wins by Joan Perich and Dani Coleman, Catalonia won six of the eight individual jousts to record a famous victory.
