Ballinamore Club Notes – 30/08/17

Béal an Átha Móir Seán Ó hEislin


Senior Championship


It was another impressive victory on Saturday evening in Cloone for the senior lads, this time they were up against an equally impressive Mohill team where a win for either team would cement their place at the top of group one. The lads were in flying form and certainly started the much brighter of the two and within the first quarter were leading by six points with the score 0:8 to 0:2 with some magnificent scores. Mohill improved over the next 10 minutes and added four of their own points before Ballinamore were to get their next and despite our early dominance we only wet in leading by two points with the halftime score 0:9 to 0:7. Within a minute of the restart Niall scored another great point before Mohill again pulled one back, it was not until the 43rd Minute that the game swung back to Ballinamore with Niall grabbing a very important goal after a Wayne free came back of the upright. Mohill were not to be denied and added a couple of impressive points of their own before Ballinamore scored three massive points each better than the last, first up was Wayne with a free, followed by Niall again after great run by Brian Leydon and again Niall with another impressive score, this left the score at 1:13 to 10 going into the last 5 minutes. Mohill grabbed another two points before Paddy grabbed the final point of the game to leave the final score Ballinamore 1:14 Mohill 0:12


Well done to all the lads hey put in a great performance all over the pitch


Oughteragh Gaels

Oughteragh Ladies reach the Championship Final!

Congratulations to our ladies team who will contest this year’s Intermediate Championship Final against Mohill on September 10th following a brilliant win over St Frances’ in Bornacoola. We eventually emerged as 3-11 to 2-10 victors in what was an enthralling game throughout but had to battle back from a 5 point deficit at half-time and the attitude on show was nothing short of exceptional. September will be a big month for the club with two finals on the way and anyone who is available to come out and support on either date, please do so.

Team: Lisa Maguire, Leanne McGrath, Ciara O’Dowd, Abbi Sweeney, Aoibheann Flynn, Kirby Gilgunn, Katie Duignan, Eilish O’Dowd, Roisin McHugh (0-7), Emma McGovern (1-1), Laura O’Dowd (1-2), Maeve Hamill, Siobhan Earley (1-1), Mary McNulty, Ciara McGoldrick.

Subs Used: Aoibhin McGoldrick, Leighanne Flynn.
