Junior A Hurlers had a busy week past, started when the played Ahane in the East Championship on Wed eve last in Boher. Ahane were the better team on the night and came away with the win, final score 0-10 to 1-16. Ballys scores came from Michael Wilkinson (0-5), Conal Ryan(0-1), Larry Browne (0-2) and Dennis Stack (0-2). This outcome determined that Bally would then meet Doon in the East championship semi-final which was played on Sunday eve last in Caherconlish. Bally put in a strong first half team performance with the breeze advantage and build up a 4 point lead by half time through scores from Michael Wilkinson (0-3), Enda Frawley (0,2), Daniel McGuire  and a well worked goal from Larry Browne (1-0) towards the end of the half. The half time score was 1-6 to 0-5 in Bally’s favor. Doon however took control at the start of the second half and registered 4 points to bring the sides level mid-way through the half. Bally dug deep and were rewarded through a point from Enda Frawley but otherwise found it difficult to get other scoring opportunities on target perhaps not helped by the conditions on the night. Doon however continued to take their opportunities and converted another 0-4 points and went away with the win and a place in the East final with a 2 point winning margin. Final score was 1-7 to 0-12 in Doon’s favor. Team: Kieran McCarthy, Matt Mitchell, Joe Teefy, Sean Browne, Paul Martin, Eoin Lyons, Mark O’ Dea, Dennis Stack, Michael Wilkinson, Liam O’Rourke, Larry Browne, Daniel McGuire, Enda Frawley, Damien Browne, Conor Grene, Barry Laffin, Hughie Leonard, Colm Nicholl, John Casey.

U14 Footballers (Naomh Brid): Well done to our U14 footballers on winning the county final when they overcame Kildimo Pallaskenry on Friday eve last in Knockea. Final score was 1-8 to 0-9. Well done to all the players and management on an excellent performance.

Minor Footballers: Well done to our minor footballers (13 a side) on their excellent win over Mountcollins on Friday eve last in Caherelly. Bally played against the wind in the first half and had an early setback when Mountcollins scored a goal in the first play of the match. Bally worked hard and were rewarded with David Tynan scoring Ballys first point followed by a well struck goal from Conal Ryan. Mountcollins then converted 3 points before Conal Ryan got the last point of the half leaving the half time scoreline 1-3 to 1-2 in favor of Mountcollins. Bally started the 2nd half well with David Tynan scoring the first 2 points of the half followed by a goal from Conal Ryan. This was followed by 2 well struck points from Conor Garvey. Mountcollins however made a late surge and put our backline under significant pressure and despite several attempt we managed to clear our lines on numerous occasions through excellent keeping by Owen Kennedy and brilliant defensive play by Alan O’Riordan, Colm Nicholl and Jack Owens. Gearoid Mitchell and Christopher Coughlan worked tiredlessly in the middle of the field to win that battle. In the end Bally came away with a deserved win and excellent team performance.
