Good night's work for Cavan handballers

Cavan handball star Michael Finnegan.

It was a successful evening for Cavan handballers as both Michael Finnegan (Senior Singles) and Stephen Smith/Thomas Edward Donohoe (U15 Doubles) advanced in the championship at Cavan venues.

Finnegan was in awesome form in Kingscourt as he routed Galway's Martin Mulkerrins 21-1, 21-12 in the senior round of 16.

The Tribesman returned from Arizona yesterday after a superb win in the final of the USHA Collegiates over Mexican Daniel Cordova - however, such was Finnegan's power and accuracy that it would have made little difference.

The experienced Cavanman dominated from the service box and "flattened the ball" at every opportunity.

Meanwhile, in St Pat's, dual stars Smith and Donohoe advanced to the Ulster U15 final with a 15-7, 15-2 win against Tyrone. Smith, who won an All Ireland Scór na nÓg medal in set dancing last Saturday night in Derry, controlled procedings from the left while Donohoe was rock-solid and killed well on the right side of the court.

They meet Monaghan in the Ulster final on March 9, also in Kingscourt.
