St. Mellans Handball Club: Juvenile County Doubles. We had the remaining boys doubles championships at the weekend in St.Mellans, we had no U13’s, in the U14’s we had a straight final where John & Peter Treanor defeated fellow club men Dillon O Reilly & Cameron Mc Meel 15-8, 15-5, in the U15’s we had 3 pairings, Jake Mc Geough & Mark Deery defeated Noah Mc Meel & Oisin Mc Caffrey then in the final they also won where they beat Aaron Cassidy & Gary Treanor 15-14, 15-1, then in the U16’s Aidan Mc Kenna & David Mc Kenna lost the 1st semi to Aidan Mc Geough & Simon Poleski from the Harps, Padraig Treanor & Mark Cassidy had a good tussel against Brendan Hamil from the Harps where it went to tie-breaker and they won it 15-12, 14-15, 11-10, but our boys came un-done against the Harps boys Simon & Aidan in the final, but we must compliment all our boys & girls for turning up and doing their best to keep our game alive and well.
Girls U16 Final. We also had the conclusion to the girl’s championships at the weekend where Eythna Boyle traveled to the Harps to play defending champion Louise Mc Ginnity in the U16 Singles final, Louise hasn’t been the reigning champion from U12’s for no reason as she stamped her authority on the game throughout, she won both games 15-1, 15-0, but I think if Eythna have had a bit more alley time I think she would have made a bigger impact on the score line, the old saying practice makes perfect, again thanks to all who have turned out in the clubs colour’s over the championships.
Juvenile Team League. Our Juvenile League is running very smoothly so keep all games played up to date.
Mono League. The Mono League is progressing along nicely with pretty much all games played up to date, so please ensure you play you game on or before the allocated time, and any outstanding games try and get them played during the holidays as the semi-finals will be sorted shortly after Christmas, thank you.
Adults Singles & Doubles. We will soon be drawing up the adults singles & doubles for commencing shortly after Christmas so anyone thinking of playing that maybe didn’t play in the team league are more than welcome to come and play.
Get Well Soon. We would like to wish 3 of our juveniles a speedy recovery from injuries, Dermott Mc Kenna, Molly Flood and Ella Mc Kenna, get well soon all.
