Club News week commencing July 7th


Minor Footballers (13 a side all county) were back in action after the leaving cert break playing Galtee Gaels away on Friday eve last. It was a very competitive and even contest in the first half with both sides exchanging scores throughout the half. The lads worked hard with some great team work leaving the half time scoreline 2-2 to 1-4 and a single point advantage to Bally. The second half started as an even competition but Galtee Gaels started to dominate after about 10 minutes and converted a series of scores from play and frees. Our defense were under contact pressure for long periods but held out well with Owen Kennedy in goal clearing his line on a number of occasions. Despite trailing by 6 points in the last 10 minutes the lads kept battling hard and a late surge from Alan O’ Riordan from the full back line set Bally up for a late revival and in the in-form Conal Ryan converted. Trailing by 2 points in the dying minutes Bally were awarded a short range free and despite a lined goal Conal Ryan once again hit the back of the net and giving Bally a single point lead just as the final whistle blew. A great team performance and never say die attitude resulted in an excellent win for Bally. Team: Owen Kennedy, Alan O’Riordan, Darragh Kelly, Liam Nicholl, Christopher Coughlan, Colm Power, Colm Nicholl, Gearoid Mitchell, Conal Ryan, Adrian Lennon, Jack Owens, David Tynan, Dylan Conway, Sean Teefy.  

U14 Hurlers (Naomh Brid) also had an excellent win over Monaleen back on Wed July 2nd. Bally started strong and went in at half time with 4 point lead and scoreline of 2-4 to 1-3 with the 2 goals from Naomh Brid coming from Daniel Owens. The lads continued to work hard in the second half and a goal from Cillian O’Brien gave Bally a 5 point cushion going into the final 7 minutes of play, however Monaleen did not lie down and a late surge resulted in them scoring 2-1 and giving them a 2 point lead going into injury time. One last attack from Bally led by Brian O’Grady passing a great ball into Cillian O’Brien who did not disappoint the home supporters when he smashed the back of the net and giving Naomh Brid a single point lead as the final whistle blew. An excellent win for this young bunch of players that never give up. A great overall team with strong individual performances led by Jack Franklin in goals, Josh Sheehan and Conor Egan very strong in defence, and Cillian O’Brien and Daniel Owens excellent in the forwards.
