Ballymacnab 3-12 Shane O’Neills 1-10

Shane O’Neills were the visitors on Monday evening for this league tie. Almost from the throw in Ballymacnab were on the attack and Jack Grugan tapped over a point. The visitors response was almost immediate when their attacker cut through the ‘Nab defence to fire a shot to the top corner of the net. However, Ballymacnab were soon level with points from Conor Murdoch and an Aodhan Toner free. Two individual points from Jack Grugan edged Ballymacnab back in front before the Shane’s responded with two of their own to level once more. Aodhan Toner pointed a free on the 25th minute to put Ballymacnab back in control before two Jack Grugan points in quick succession, set up by Rory Gray and Conor Murdoch respectively. Shane’s responded with another point to leave Ballymacnab leading 0-08 to 1-03 at the break.


Jack Grugan exchanged scores with the Shane’s attack early in the half before Conor Murdoch pounced on a long range free from Aodhan Toner to fire to the net on the 36th minute. Two minutes later Ballymacnab got their third goal when their one touch play through Conor Leonard and Kieran Hughes set up to Jack Grugan to fire home. From then Ballymacnab dominated and added points from Stephen McGuigan, Aodhan Toner and Kieran Hughes to record the victory. A good spirited win with Oisin Fearon, Fearghal Nugent, Conor Leonard, Jack Grugan and Rory Gray most eye catching.
