Defeat for Doyle in the Emerald Master A Singles
Benny Doyle (Wexford) took on Johnny Brennan (Kilkenny) in the Emerald Master A Singles tonight in Garryhill. Doyle entered the alley with Wexford already having two Leinster singles titles in their pocket. The first game proved to be an epic encounter with both players leading at different stages. However the Kilkenny man jut edged the first on a scoreline of 21-20. This was a tough blow for Doyle as he had played some great handball in the first. The second game was a very tense affair but Brennan from Kilkenny proved too strong and won the second game on a scoreline of 21-11. Doyle who won the 40×20 All Ireland showed great fitness throughout the match but Brennan was a hurdle too far this time around.
