Ballymacelligott GAA Club Notes 5th March 2023
by Joanne Long PRO
Spa GAA v Ballymac GAA – Minor County League Div 2A – Round 2
Spa GAA 2-14
Ballymac GAA 1-07
Our Minor team played in the second round of the County League Division 2a against Spa GAA in Killarney on Saturday.
Ballymac started the game well with some good play and some great chances but were unable to convert some early goal opportunities. However, it was Spa who took control of the half thereafter with some excellent conversion of scores.
In the second half, Spa continued to dominate where our lads found it difficult to get a foothold in the game. However, our boys never gave up and fought right until the end.
Final Score – Spa GAA 2-14 Ballymac GAA 1-07
Luke Griffin (1-01), Micheal Savage (0-3) Eoin Moriarty (0-02), Conal Savage (0-01)
