Covey League 2018

After Round 3 of the 2018 Covey League Padraic Furlong leads the way. Starting in the first group on the road he kept enough strength in the legs to power home for a strong finish. Aaron Doherty drops to 7th after missing out this week, showing just how things can change in only one round.
