Tinryland Under 15 Handball team, representing Carlow, scored a narrow win over Kells (Kilkenny) by 71 pts to 69 last week to qualify for the Leinster Semi-Finals of the Community Games.
Kilkenny’s Mark Dwyer got the Kells boys off to a flying start with a 30 pts to 6 win over a below form Matthew O’Toole. The doubles partnership of Colm Nolan and Kevin Barrett then finished level with David Delaney and Niall Smyth of Kells on a score of 35-35.
This meant that Shane Redmond had to make up a 24 point deficit to draw level with the Kells boys going into the last singles game. He then produced an excellent performance to defeat Michael Fennelly by 30 pts to 4 to give victory to the local boys at the Rathcrogue Venue by the narrowest of margins.
This team will now play in the Leinster Semi-Finals in Carlow this weekend along with the Girls Under 16 Basketball team.
