Our below par performance combined by a rejuvenated opposition saw our seniors defeated at home to Dromintee on Wednesday night.


A minutes silence was observed before the game in memory of our former player Brendan Harvey and fellow Gael Austin Loughran who both passed away recently.


Dromintee registered the first score in the first minute. Ballymacnab had to wait until the 7th minute to make their mark on the scoreboard when Damian McGeown made himself available to collect a pass from Richard Gribben and kicked a well taken point. Dromintee responded with a point before Richard Gribben proved provider once more to the lively Damian McGeown who kicked another point in what was his first start of the year. Dromintee added another two points before a James Gray point on the 16th minute reduced the deficit to the minimum. Once again the visitors responded quickly and dominated the final quarter as Ballymacnabs only response was a point from Brian McCone to leave his side trailing by 5 at the break.


Ballymacnab made an encouraging start to the second half and only a save from the ‘keeper denied Gavin McParland with a chance of a goal, at the expense of a point. Three unanswered points from the opposition were meet by a pointed free from Brian McCone on the 38th minute. However, this was as good as it got for the Round Towers as the opposition added further points in quick succession while the white flag was raised for points from Gavin McParland and Jack Grugan.
