Our minor team travelled to Granemore on Monday evening for their second game of the league. Granemore got off the mark early on with a point before Kieran Hughes rattled the back of the net. Playing against the breeze, the visitors failed to score again for the rest of the half while Granemore scored 7 unanswered points to go in at the interval 0-8 to 1-0. In the second half the home side soon stretched their lead to 6 before the Nab started to get into the game. Ballymacnab scored 5 points without reply from Conor Mackin, Ciaran Connelly and Kieran Hughes (3) with the latter scoring a superb point from a sideline. Granemore then went one up before Hughes scored another spectacular point from the sideline to level the game. Aodhan Toner then hit two points from the dead ball to win the game for his side. A fantastic performance from all the lads with Feargal Nugent and Conor Leonard going through a trojan of work and were the best performers on the night.


Team: Conor McGivern, Josh McGeown, Oisin Fearon, Michael Gribben, Brendan Kennedy, Finnen Maguire, Feargal Nugent, Conor Leonard, Tiernan McArdle, Kieran Hughes (1-5), Aodhan Toner (0-2), Shaun Casey, Oisin McGivern, Tiernan McArdle, Conor Mackin (0-1).
