USHA FOUR-WALL NATIONALS – USA HANDBALL

DAY 5 — Play wrapped up on Sunday with several doubles finals throughout the morning.

In the women’s doubles final, Catriona Casey and Fiona Tully defeated Ashley Moler and Mikaila Esser in two games. The Irish tandem played flawlessly throughout the match. Esser and Moler made a late run late in game two, but it was too late as they fell 21-4, 21-11.

The men’s open doubles final between Diarmaid Nash and Martin Mulkerrins vs Max Langmack and Sam Esser was one of the matches of the tournament. Langmack and Esser came out in game one to stun the Irish team, but couldn’t capitalize in game two or three. Despite being a day removed from an incredibly easy singles final, Nash and Mulkerrins found enough energy to win 17-21, 21-15, 11-4.

Thanks to all the players who participated in the tournament and the incredible people and players in Portland who volunteered and planned the tournament!

DAY 4 — We crowned several singles champions on Saturday, including the Open men’s and women’s singles champions.

Catriona Casey produced a stunning display of handball in her victory over Fiona Tully in the women’s final. Casey’s accuracy and ability to go an entire match without making a mistake was incredible and propelled her to victory.

The men’s final was one of the best national finals played in recent years. Diarmaid Nash edged out Martin Mulkerrins 11-9 after dropping the first game. The gallery was stunned by the ability of the two players. Nash’s hands in the front yard were incredible. He was able to handle Mulkerrin’s power and throw shots into the corner, taking speed off the ball. It was an amazing show.

Several other champions were crowned on Saturday.

Martin Mulkerrins defeated Shorty Ruiz convincingly in the first men’s semi-final, 21-7, 21-5. Diarmaid Nash then produced a spectacular performance to beat Sean Lenning 21-13, 21-2 to set up an all-Ireland final tomorrow.

Catriona Casey showed why she is considered the best women’s player in the world in her 21-0, 21-2 victory over Mikaila Esser. Fiona Tully and Ashley Moler followed that up with what was perhaps the match of the day, which went to Tully 21-14, 12-21, 11-5.
