All-Ireland 40×20 Junior B Semi-Final – There was no joy for Jarlath Scollan in the Junior B All-Ireland Semi-Final where he suffered defeat at the hands of Waterford’s Kavan O’Keefe, losing on a scoreline of 5-21, 18-21. Although Jarlath got off to a strong start in the first game going 4-0 up, O’Keefe took control and completely dominated the game with fantastic kill shots and top class serving. The second game started the same way with Scollan again going 4-0 up before losing serve, but unlike the first game, he won some key rallies, keeping the Waterford man under pressure. Trailing 14-19 he regained serve and with an upset looking likely, he lost a crucial rally at 18-19. O’Keefe then edged out a victory taking the game 21-18.
