Handball hat-trick of results
WEXFORD HAD a tremendous hat-trick of results at the weekend in the All-Ireland 40 x 20 handball championship semi-finals in the Intermediate, Under-21 and Masters grades.
Barry Goff proved what a class act he is, not only to be able to combine inter-county handball and hurling in one weekend, but to absolutely hammer his oppenent in amazing style.
Barry played top-notch handball beating Declan Frawley to keep the Intermediate double alive.
Myles Cash put in one of his better performances of the year to qualify for the final of the Under-21 singles after he beat Brendan Fleming from Cork.
To complete a magnificent hat-trick, Tony Breen and Jimmy Goggins were far too good for their opponents in their bid to hold on to their Silver Masters doubles title as they demolished Pat Morris and Micheal O'Dea from Cork.
Unfortunately a fourth Wexford win was denied in the cruellest of fashion as Jim Bergin and Tom Donohoe lost to Pat O'Brien and Tony Buckley from Cork.
