Dunnes Bar ACL Division 1 –It was another fantastic performance by the senior lads on Saturday evening, playing in glorious conditions with a great crowd in attendance. This time the opponents were Gael na Meilge who as ever would prove to be a difficult hurdle to cross. Our opponents started well kicking the first three scores of the games, before Dean McGovern fisted our first point on 10 minutes, this was followed by a quick exchange of points to leave the score 0:2 to 0:4 in favour of the visitors. The next four scores went to us, the first from the impressive Peter Reynolds with a free and an excellent Bryan Leydon point to level the scores, followed again by Peter firing over a couple of frees before two unanswered scores from the visitors left the game tied on 0:6 to 0:6 Peter and Bryan again added a couple of points either side of a Gael na Meilge point to leave Ballinamore leading by one at the break by a score 0:8 to 0:7 The visitors again opened the scoring at the start of the second half to level the scores before Keelan McHugh grabbed an important goal to give us the lead, it was nip and tuck at this stage with first the visitors scoring followed by Luke with a free to leave the score 1:9  to 0:9 with 46 mins on the clock. The next score proved to be an important one with Mark McCrory adding a goal to increase the lead to 6 points, the visitors continued to push forward looking for goals and Denis Dolan made an excellent save to deny them before Mark McCrory rifled in another excellent goal to leave the scores 3:9 to 0:9. The visitors would claim the final two scores of the match to leave the final score Ballinamore 3:9 to Gael na Meilge 0:11.
