Lisburn captured the Fred Daly Trophy when Jack Shellard scrambled a par to win the decisive point at the 19th at Tramore Golf Club.

The final was poised at two points apiece during a titanic battle with Connacht champions Galway and all eyes turned to match five where the destination of the title was on the line.

Fittingly for such a closely contested decider, it required an extra hole to find a winner. Shellard had to produce heroics on 18 just to keep the contest alive. Trailing Harry Colbert, Lisburn's anchor-man eagled the closing par five to square the match.

The two remaining combatants returned to the first in a bid to settle their encounter. Although Shellard missed the green and left his pitch four paces from the hole, he drained the 12-footer, which rocked Galway and ultimately proved decisive when Colbert missed his putt for par.

Aaron Marshall (1 hole) and Josh Black (4&3) also won points for the Ulster side but wins for Liam Nolan (2&1) and Sean Nohilly (5&4) meant that the final hinged on the bottom match.

In the Irish Junior Foursomes, Munster winners Mitchelstown will meet Co Sligo and Leinster champions Waterford face Warrenpoint in Sunday morning's semi-finals.

The final is scheduled for a 1pm start. Meanwhile, the inaugural Junior Inter-Club All-Ireland is down for decision from 9am.
