Handball: McCann squeezes through to last 16

Published 19/02/2013 | 04:00

Just 16 players remain in the hunt for the O'Neills 40x20 All-Ireland Men's Open Singles crown after two rounds of qualifiers were played over the weekend.

Antrim's Ricky McCann secured his passage with a tie-break win over world 'A' singles champion Carl Browne. Meath's Browne had earlier accounted for Roscommon's Neil McDermott on a 21-6, 21-13 scoreline.

Antrim's Owen McKenna booked his place with victories over Peter Funchion of Kilkenny and a walkover from Wexford's Gavin Buggy. Joining them in the last 16 will be Dominic Lynch of Kerry, who defeated Roscommon's Rikki O'Gara by 21-7, 21-12.

Mayo's Stephen Cooney defeated Tyrone's Shane O'Neill 21-13, 21-13 to book his place in the next round while Johnny Willoughby of Wicklow and Tipperary's Ger Coonan defeated Darragh Daly of Tyrone and Antrim's Paul Graham respectively to ensure their place in the live draw.

Brendan Fleming of Cork and Galway star Martin Mulkerrins also advanced to the next stage where the top eight in the country – including world number one Paul Brady – will be seeded.
