Our under 14 ladies travelled to Templenoe on Sunday last to take on the Inbhear Sceine Gaels girls in the first round of Division 2 of the County League. On at the early time of 11am to accommodate the girls to travel back to Killarney to see Kerry playing an early start Sunday morning was required. Great credit to the parents who had all players in the grounds forty minutes before the throw in. In perfect conditions with a slight breeze we ended the first half down a point on a scoreline of 0-5 to 1-1 . Both teams found scores hard to come by but in saying that there was some excellent defending from both teams. Cora Savage found the net to get us on the score board with an excellent run beating several defenders to finish to the net with aplomb. This was the least the girls deserved at that stage due to their hard work and determination up to then. The second half started with Ballymac having the aid of the slight breeze and had to withstand alot of pressure from the home side conceding a fortuitous goal to leave us trailing by 3 again but the girls rallied brilliantly with Sinead Mc Keown and Cora Savage dominating at centre field to take the lead with five minutes to go. Grainne Galvin chipped in with a goal to give us a point lead . The south Kerry girls replied with a point to leave it level going into injury time . While we had a chance to win it , it was the south kerry girls who got the winning point to take the spoils with a deflected shot which went over. This was a game in which neither team deserved to lose. For Ballymac, Lorna Daly played excellent in goals making some great saves and clearances. All the backs played well on the day but Roisin Rahilly excelled in the half back line ably assisted by Roisin Long. Sinead(0-1) and Cora (1-5) carried the game through out to the opposition from centre field and up front all the girls gave it their all with Kate O Connor,captain Mary Ann Fleming and Grainne Galvin(1-0) trying hard.
