Tydavnet Juvenile handball Finals

The semi-finals and finals of both groups 1 and 2 took place on Tuesday night. In group 2 Ronan King defeated Darragh McCague after a great match in the first semi-final that Ronan eventually won 15-13, 8-15, 15-11. In the second semi-final Killian Sherry defeated Liam McCague in another very good match that ended 15-13, 15-8. Killians Z serve was proving a real match winner and in the final against Ronan it was this serve that caused most damage and after a great final Killian emerged victorious 15-13, 15-12 to lift the Jack Murphy shield.

In group two, the first semi-final was between Conor Mohan and Fintan Hackett and Conor won a good game 15-7, 15-12. The second semi-final was another good match between James McCague and James Curley and it was James ace serves into the left and right corners that won him the match. The final between Conor and James was probably the best juvenile final we have witnessed in years. These two players reached the county juvenile championship finals earlier at U15 and U16 and this match proved why. Both players have most of the shots, with good defensive shots and lethal kills and returns. On the night Conor held out for a great win and became the second player to lift the Evelyn Mohan perpetual shield but this game could have gone either way. Well done to all the juveniles who took part in the leagues and it must be said that the standard was the best ever and even though the games were intense and the disappointment of losing was obvious, all the players showed excellent sportsmanship throughout and at the end of the day there were no losers.The group 3 semi-finals and final shall take place soon.

Adult handball championship

On Friday last Paul Cassidy defeated Cormac Sherry in the novice 1 championship final to take his place in Junior for next season.

Scoil Mhuire Win 3 Ulster titles

The Monaghan boys won three out of four Ulster titles at the finals of the Cumann na mBunscol competition which was held at the Donegal venues of Glenfinn and Ballybofey on Saturday.  With 8 Ulster counties entered it meant that three victories would be needed to win the coveted Ulster title.
First into court was Justas Dambinskas and he was in the best form ever as he progressed to the under 13 singles final against a Tyrone oppponent.  He played superbly in the final and won with great serves and “kill” shots.
In the Under 13 doubles Jakub Szkup and Konrad Kowal had little difficulty in winning this grade despite coming up against a highly-fancied Tyrone pairing of Daire and Ronan Curran.  This was a superb team effort by the Monaghan lads, with Konrad in devastating form throughout.
Hot favourite in the under 11 singles, Eoghan Mc Ginnity wowed the large attendance with his full array of shots on his way to victory.
Newcomers, Tiernan O’Rourke and Deivydas Kaklauskas, won 2 games to reach the under 11 doubles final. They were up against a great Tyrone pairing and came very close to upsetting the odds.
At the Ballybofey venue Louise Mc Ginnity and Viktorija Kaklauskaite represented their school, St. Louis Girls.  They both surpassed expectations despite being relative newcomers to competitive handball.  In fact Louise won one game and only lost out on aggregate scores.
The venue officials in Donegal are to be congratulated for looking after so many visitors throughout the day.
