County 4-Wall League Division 2 Final: Noel Holohan strolls to victory in one-sided encounter
Review by AOB
The D2 decider between Noel Holohan, Templeudigan and Barry McWilliams, Horeswood was expected to be a tight affair as two players with bags of experience faced off, but it turned out to be a rather disappointing encounter as the Templeudigan stalwart came home a decisive 15-8, 15-1 winner.
Expectations of a cracking final were raised right from the off when the first rally consisted of approximately 12 shots, but it proved to be a false dawn as the tie quickly developed into a hit and miss contest. In that context Holohan was marginally the more reliable of the two and he build a steady lead before closing out the first game 15-8.
Hopes that McWilliams would make it more of a contest in the second died very quickly as the Horeswood man simply could not get into any kind of rhythm despite his best efforts. By contrast, Holohan, with the scent of victory now in his nostrils, went looking for winners at every opportunity. His second game winning margin of 15-1 sums up how successful he was in that regard.
