Ballinamore Sean O Heslin’s GAA Club Notes 07/08/2018

Connacht Gold Leitrim Senior Championship – It was a hard-fought draw for the senior lads on Saturday in Cloone when they took on our neighbours Drumreilly in the second round of this year’s championship. As was expected Drumreilly were a stern test and led by 1 point at half time with the score 0:07 to 1:05. The second half started well for Drumreilly with the adding a couple of quick points to give them a three-point lead, the lads rallied and after 10 minutes the sides were level. Both team continued to trade points before Drumreilly scored an important goal to lead by three with 14 mins of the second half gone. It was nip and tuck for the rest of the game with the lads levelling and then taking the lead only for Drumreilly to level near the end, with the final score 1:12 to 2:09. The result leaves the lads on second in the group on 3 points level with Drumreilly and one point behind Mohill, the next match is on Saturday in Pairc Sean against Dromahair at 1730

Smiths Monuments Intermediate Championship – The second round of the intermediate championship took place on Sunday and this time the lads were up against Kiltubrid who proved to be very strong team winning the match with a score of 3-22 to 0-10. Next up for the lads is a match against Carrigallen in Cloone on Sunday at 12:00, your support for these great lads would be appreciated.

Ballinamore Hurling – Well done to our young hurlers who were in action in the Tain u13 final against a very good Warronpoint team. It was a tough match for the lads who eventually lost to this very experienced team, the lads never gave up and fought to the bitter end and showed how far they have progressed over the last year and it was fitting that Kian McGovern received the man of the match award at the end.

The tournament was a massive success which gave the lads some very competitive games and they picked up some excellent skills in these last few months.

A huge thanks to their great management team of Niall Connelly and Paddy O’Connor for their dedication to these young hurlers.

Well done to all the organisers of the Tain Og league for putting Hurling on the map in the weaker counties and encouraging all players of all abilities to play our national game.

Under 12 Girls Championship Final – Well done to our u12 girls who were in action on Sunday in the Championship final against St Bridget’s in Pairc Sean. The girls put in an excellent performance and were just beaten on the day by a very strong team. The final score was 1:07 to 0:14 with St Bridget’s goalie denying a couple of goal scoring chances at the end. All credit to the girls for their performance and hopefully they will not be to disheartened as I am sure there will be plenty more finals for them in the future. Special thanks also to the management team of Adrian Murphy, Mollie Murphy and Katie Duignan for all their hard work and support for the girls
