In the first game Connor Finn got off to a strong start with a serve that the Fenagh lad got hard to get to grips with in the early stages and went on to win the game 15-10. The second game was a must win one for Scollan and with a combination of good serving and passing shots, he won some key rallies and took the game 15-9. With the momentum from the second game with him Scollan made maximum use of his dominance and gave a top class display of serve and kill shots and went on to take the game 15-3. On his route to the final he defeated Mayos Lorcan Conlon in the semi-final on a score line of 15-4, 15-13. He is now through to his first All-Ireland semi-final which will be played on October 2nd against Ulster opposition in a Connacht venue.
