Jason Murphy was not in the mood to entertain hot prospect Keith Kavanagh from Wicklow and let his handball do the talking as he claimed a spot in the final of the All Ireland Hardball 60 x 30 minor singles .
This was a fantastic win for the Castlebridge youth who found his ‘A’ game on the right night to fire himself into and All Ireland final .The opening set Jason took after a great battle on a 21-17 score line .
From there on, with his head up and playing some fantastic handball, Jason Murphy took control and pulled out a second set win on a 21-11 score line.
The final takes place next Saturday before Gavin’s quarter final with Jason Murphy set to do battle for the gold medal with Stephen Cooney from Mayo who is one of the best minor players in the country.
