BALLYMAC 4—10 BEAUFORT 0—11
Our third County League fixture was at home to Beaufort last Saturday evening. Played in brilliant spring sunshine we could have been further ahead at the break, but we pulled away in the second half to win easily. High-energy performances from Josh 0’ Keeffe and Tadhg Brick helped in no small way to secure two more league points. ML. Hoare pointed early on for us and when Barry Lyons was fouled, Daire Reagan pointed from the free. Beaufort also added two points. ML. Hoare then won possession, passed to Daire Reagan who worked his way through for a well-taken goal. Cathal Dunne put Dylan Dunne through for a point with Beaufort also pointing. The visitors added two more points before Tadhg passed to Cathal who in turn picked out Barry and as he made his way goalwards. Tadhg Brick was again on hand to finish to the net. The Half time score was Ballymac 2—04 Beaufort 0—06. The second half started well for us with Barry Lyons scoring a goal after good work by Cathal and James Mc’Donnell. However, Beaufort replied with three unanswered points. ML. Hoare and Daire Reagan pointed from frees, followed by a point each from Daire Reagan and a fine point by Daire Broderick. Beaufort again pointed, while at the other end Josh intercepted a kick out and drove through for a fine goal. D. Reagan and ML. Hoare scored our final points with the visitors getting a late point. Eddie Rodgers, Keelan Brosnan, and Chris Lowe all played a vital part in this victory, which is a huge boost ahead of the visit of Fossa next Friday evening.
