John Mitchels 1-12, Ballymac 1-05
Ballymac Seniors played John Mitchels in a doubled up fixture for Tralee Town League and St. Brendans Board game on Sunday at Mitchels.
A very heavy pitch made it hard to play good football. Great credit is due to both teams for the sporting manner in which the game was contested.
Ballymac were once again under strength which meant a starting place for a number of the younger players.
Mitchels played with the strong wind in the first half and opened well scoring 1-04 before an Aiden Breen free got Ballymac off the mark. Four more Mitchels points were followed by another Breen pointed free leaving the half time score 1-08 to 0-02 to Mitchels.
The second half saw Ballymac start much brighter, scoring three points, Aiden Breen (Free), Thomas Lyons and Breen again from play to match one from the Mitchels. Two more Mitchels points followed to make the score 1-11 to 0-05. Some neat play and a good run and pass from Eoin Sugrue resulted in Aiden Breen crashing the ball to the Mitchels net. A pointed free from Mitchels was the last of the game. Final Score Mitchels 1-12 Ballymac 1-05
