Michael Egan did the double over his doubles partner Cathal O’Connor when he won the County 60×30 Minor title in St Comans Handball Club yesterday (Sunday) afternoon.
Having beaten Cathal in a thrilling 40×20 match earlier in the year Michael was expected to win this as his style is very much ‘big alley’ oriented. In addition Cathal had taken time off handball in order to complete his Leaving Cert.
The standard was not as high as would normally be expected by these two as Michael led from start to finish. Apart from the start of the second game the result was never really in doubt with Michael winning 21-10, 21-13.
Michael will play against Mayo’s Patrick Murphy in the Connacht Semi-Final this weekend.
