Ballymacnab 1-20 Wolfe Tones 1-09


Wolfe Tones were the visitors on Saturday afternoon to compete in a league fixture. With the visitors already relegated and our seniors requiring at least a point mathematically to secure their league status it was little wonder that the lads came away with a comfortable victory.


Ballymacnab opened up a campaigning lead in the early stages with points from Brian McCone (2), Gavin McParland, Brendan Toner and Michael Beagan before the Tones opened their account with a point on the 9th minute. Ballymacnab responded immediately with a point through Brian McCone and an excellent finished goal from Gavin McParland producing the first three pointer of the day and by half time the 'Nab lead 1-13 to 3 points with Brian McCone, Joe Gribben, Gavin McParland and Jack Grugan among the scorers.


Two long range points from Jack Grugan and Joe Gribben at the beginning of the second half added to the tally but the visitors responded well and dominated the next ten minutes with three unanswered points. On the 47th minute the visitors were awarded a penalty that was brilliantly saved by substitute keeper Conor McGivern. However, he was harshly deemed to have come off his line and the kick was retaken and this time converted. Points from Joe Gribben, Brian McCone, Gavin McParland and Brendan Toner added to the Ballymacnab tally to record the victory.
