Handball: 60×30 Juvenile Connacht Finals

Two Roscommon players had mixed results in the 60×30 Juvenile Connacht Finals held in Fenagh, Leitrim last weekend.

Eoghan Carthy, fresh off his excellent semi-final win over Gavin Kelly had a good win over Leitrim’s Benoit McKiernan in the Boys U14 Singles.

Benoit is a talented player who regularly trains with the players in St. Coman’s but at the moment he lacks the experience to beat Eoghan.

All the same, he made the Roscommon youngster work quite hard for his points and there were a number of entertaining rallies throughout before the St. Coman’s player ran out a 15-3, 15-4 winner.

Kilglass’s Allana Coggeran is a recent convert to the big court and her lack of experience there also told when she took on Sligo’s hard-hitting Karley Cooney in the Girls U15 Singles.

Allana started very slowly and was well down before she showed what she was capable of. However, the Sligo girl always held the middle of the court and kept Allana out behind her and took a comfortable 15-8, 15-0 win.
