Our Reserves got off to a winning start in the first game of the South League with a 3-13 to 2-12 win away to Silverbridge. Silverbridge were quick out of the blocks and only a good save from Conor McGivern in 1st minute denied the home side a certain goal. Ballymacnab got the first score of the game through a well worked effort from Fearghal Nugent after a good pass by Richard Gribben and followed up with further scores from Oisin Fearon and Aodhan Toner. Ballymacnab continued their early dominance with an individual goal from Kieran Hughes and Fearghal Nugent followed with an opportunistic goal. Silverbridge hit back with a number of points and a goal from a converted penalty.
