Egan too hot to handle

Michael Egan did the double over his doubles partner Cathal O’Connor when he won the 60×30 County Minor title in St. Coman’s last 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 and 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 and other than the start of the second game the result was never really in doubt, Michael winning 21-10, 21-13. He plays the Connacht semi-final against Mayo’s Patrick Murphy this weekend.
