Ballymacnab 1-10 St.Brigid’s 1-04

Our minors got the better of St.Brigids at the second time of asking with a 1-10 to 1-04 victory at Pairc na Gael in the Championship Quarter Final Replay on Monday evening.

Both teams were evenly matched in the first half with the first score coming on the 8th minute when Ryan Watters flick to Eoin Smyth saw him slot the ball pass the 'keeper. Oisin McGivern followed with a pointed free before the visitors opened their account with a point on the 16th minute. Oisin McGivern once again responded with a point but St.Brigids found the net on the 26th minute and a point from Oisin McGivern was cancelled out with a point for the opposition to leave the 'Nab 1-3 to 1-2 ahead at the break.

Ryan Watters and Oisin McGivern added points at the start of the second half as St.Brigids clawed back a point from a free before an individual point from Shaun Casey put Ballymacnab 3 up. From then Ballymacnab got into their stride and began to dominate and with the accuracy of Oisin McGivern and the leadership of Shaun Casey and Finnén Maguire Ballymacnab  ran out convincing winnings.

Well done lads on your just reward for effort and  will now meet Wolfe Tones in the Semi-Final stage on Saturday 23 August @ 415pm in Clann Eireann.

Team: Shane McClelland, Niall McKee, Shaun Casey (Capt 0-1), Stephen King, Brendan Kennedy, Josh McGeown, Finnén Maguire, Caoimhín Rafferty, Oisin McGivern (0-8), Ryan McKenna, Michael Gribben, Ryan Watters (0-1), Eoin Smyth (1-0).
