The Castleisland Mart Junior Premier Club Championship Round 1
Finuge – 1-07
Referee- Paul Hayes ( Kerins O’Rahillys)
It was Easter Sunday and the venue was John Mitchells GAA where Ballymac kicked off on their Championship campaign.
It was not to be Ballymacs day but not from lack of working hard to obtain a lead position when Finuge dominated the first half by scoring the first 3 points in the first six minutes of the game. A free kick awarded to Ballymac did see Aiden Breen get their side on the score board and another outstanding point from Vinnie Horan seemed to get the competition off to a good start however Finuge never gave up and following 3 more points and a blowing goal they went into half time in firm control despite Ballymacs Aiden Breen giving his side 2 more points just before the break. Half time score 0-04 to Finuges 1-06
After the break Finuge were awarded a free and scored what was to be their last point of the game as Ballymac kept them firmly away from the danger zone and pulled 4 more points out of the hat. However the hard work just wasn’t enough when the ref blew the whistle at the final minute and Finuge took home the win.
Final score Ballymac 0-08 to Finuges 1-07
It wasn’t Ballymacs day but we look forward to more form this ever improving team. We wish Finuge every success in their Championship campaign as they take on Na Gael next weekend.
Next up for Ballymac is Listowel Emmets on Saturday 7th of April at Ballymac at 6.30pm.
