Our u 17 Team played Beale / Finuge in Ballymac on Monday 7 th of June in round 1 of the Division 2 A county league .
A light drizzle before the game made conditions sloppy on the pitch .
The visitors were first off the mark with a fisted effort from Robert Stack , but Ballymac soon responded with a point from Niall Collins .
A great battle took place around the middle of the field , with 3 Kerry minor panelist’s on view .
Our own Donal Daly was winning some great Ball , and Niall Collins was having a dream start having clocked up 4 points after 20 mins.
Ballymac edged in front in the second quarter when Donal Daly had the ball in the net from a penalty. The visitors replied with some points of their own from their talisman Kelton Molloy .
A fisted point from James Kenny & a goal by Gary Lynch give us a six point cushion at the interval, Ballymac leading by 2 08 to 08 points .
Ballymac got the dream start in the second half when Niall Collins pointed to bring his tally to 6 points .
Soon after Maurice O’Connell had the ball in the visitors net and a further point off the left peg gave us a comfortable cushion as we headed for the last ten minutes.
Kieran Slattery was outstanding in goals keeping a clean sheet. His kick outs were sublime . Our backs were outstanding right throughout the game , repelling the visitors forwards time & time again . Skye Lynch reignited our midfield section and his point from 30 yards was sublime.
Our forwards created some wonderful scores and can be proud of their performance.
They were unlucky with some of their chances but the link up play was sublime.
Over all a great start to the County league , thanks to Finuge / Beale for a fine sporting game and
thanks to all parents for supporting us on the night .
