A share of the spoils was the final result in our highly entertaining Senior game away to Dromintee on Sunday evening

Gavin McParland got Ballymacnab off the mark with a point in the first minute but a goal for Dromintee on the 5th minute and a point on the 9th minute gave them an early advantage. Points from Pauric Gribben, Gavin McParland and Jack Grugan levelled matters by the 15th minute. Three consecutive for the opposition put them back in the driving seat but a 28th minute goal from Joe Gribben levelled matters once more. From the resulting kick out Jack Grugan and Gavin McParland linked well with Chris Loughran who fired home a second goal in as many minutes. Converted frees from Gavin McParland and Jack Grugan gave their side a 2-6 to 1-4 lead at the break.

Points from Gavin McParland and Pauric Gribben were exchanged with that of the opposition but a goal on the 38th minute gave Dromintee a much needed lift. However, this was short lived as Jack Grugan kicked three unaswered points to leave 5 points once more between the sides. However the game was to take another twist as Dromintee replied with a brace of points and an injury time goal to record a draw.

Despite the draw, this was another all round good team performance with solid performances from Chris Loughran, Dominic McParland, Pauric Gribben, Jack Grugan, Gavin McParland and Kieran Hughes. Unfortunately Ruairí Gribben picked up a nasty injury approaching the end of the game and all at the Club wish him a speedy recovery.
