Royal Portrush return to the summit

ROYAL Portrush reclaimed the Ulster Senior Cup title with a 3-2 win over defending champions Slieve Russell at Massereene.

Even with the Maguire twins (unbeaten throughout) in their ranks, Slieve Russell simply did not have the strength and depth to match their opponents.

Royal Portrush now join Lahinch in the All Ireland Quarter Finals in Cork on 13-14 August while Slieve Russell join Douglas as one of the three teams hoping to make it to the quarter finals as best losers.
