OFFALY’S Darragh Kenny played a leading role in helping Paris Panthers to win the Portuguese leg of the Global Champions League on Saturday, June 16 at Cascais in Estoril.
Kenny completed a double clear round aboard ‘Balou du Reventon’, while a four-fault round from team mate Gregory Wathelet (BEL) with ‘Mjt Nevados S’ proved good enough to take the winners’ trophy.
Darragh Kenny was delighted that his team made the most of a good start in the opening round on Thursday: “It was a very good result for us – we were in a good position going into today, we had the same thing in Mexico and we ended up third, so it’s good to finish on top today. It was important for us to have a good result today [for the overall rankings] – Gregory was fantastic on the first day, he left us with a really good round and score. Today worked out well!”
Louth’s Mark McAuley helped Montreal Diamonds to a sixth place finish, while Mayo’s Michael G Duffy was on the Madrid In Motion team, which finished seventh.
