Western/ Covey League RD8 – Heneghan sprints to victory
WLCC’s Heneghan Sprints To Victory
At Round 8 of the league junior Kieran Heneghan showed youth was on his side when he showed everyone a clean pair of heels in the sprint for the line. On the night the scratch group had to overcome an 8minute H/cap. Out front lone leader Anthony Chappat only new to the Covey Westport line up held on with 5k to go before been swallowed up by the strong men of the Scratch group. In the long up hill finish to the line serval attacks were made but none stuck leaving a sprint to sort out the results. Heneghan explosive burst was enough for him to take the win ahead of teammates Sean O Malley and JJ Flaherty.
