Miley Connors progresses in the Junior B

Miley Connors (Wexford) took on Tomas Lennon (Laois) in the Leinster final of the Junior B singles 60X30 Leinster championship this evening.  The much fancied Wexford man started the first game at a blistering pace and dominated early on not allowing his opponent time to settle into the game. Connors who won the Junior B county title played great handball and showed comfort killing the ball with both hands. This enabled the Wexford player to secure the first game on a scoreline of 21-6. So to the second game where the Laois player began to settle into his stride and make some aces. The second game was very close at 12-12 until the Barntown man regained the toss and from there he really pushed on playing beautiful handball. After some very hard work in the second game Connors ran out a comfortable winner at 21-12. A great start to the day for Wexford handball with one Leinster medal secured.
