Granemore 1-09 Ballymacmacnab 2-05


A late rally was not enough for our minors when they went down to a 1-9 to 2-5 defeat away to neighbours Granemore on Monday. Finnén Maguire opened the scoring account with a point in the 3rd minute before Granemore responded with four unanswered points until Fearghal Nugent finished off his hard work with a well taken goal. Granemore hit back with two points but in between these scores Aodhan Toner converted a penalty to give his side a one point lead at half time. Granemore dominated the early stages of the second half hitting 1-3 without response but the lads did not go out without a fight and points from Stephen King, Finnén Maguire (2) and Shaun Casey reduced the deficit but unfortunately time had ran out. Although a below par performance from the lads there were some good performances from Oisin Fearon, Fearghal Nugent, Stephen King and Conor Mackin.


Team: Ryan McKenna, Brendan Kennedy, Oisin Fearon, Conor McGivern (Capt), Feargal Nuguent (1-0), Ciaran Connolly, Finnén Maguire (0-3), Conor Leonard, Conor Mackin, Aodhan Toner (1-0), Stephen King (0-1), Ryan Watters, Tirnan McArdle. Subs: Shaun Casey (0-1) for R.Watters, Ryan Beagan for C.Leonard
