Whitehead end Balmoral's undefeated streak to close gap on Bangor at top

By David Mason

Whitehead brushed aside Balmoral at Belvoir Drive on Saturday to move menacingly into the slipstream of NIBA Division One leaders Bangor.

The current title holders travelled to Belfast knowing that Balmoral had yet to taste defeat in the league this season, but that statistic was blown out of the water on their departure.

Certainly, on this form, the east Antrim boys will not be far away when the title medals are handed out in August. Moran set the tone by skipping his rink to an eight shots win over Clifford Craig (28-20). Marty McHugh and JR Wilson also made a significant contribution by beating Drew Donaghy (19-14) and Annesley Harrision (27-23), while James Caldwell beat Matt Reid (21-20).
