The seniors were back in action after the holiday break when Culloville were the visitors to Pairc na Gael on Sunday.

Ballymacnab were quick off the mark and registered four points through Brian McCone (3) and Damian McGeown before Culloville registered their first score on the 11th minute. Ballymacnab continued their good play and were rewarded for this on the scoreboard with points from Dominic McParland, Rory Grugan and Brian McCone to lead by 6 after 19 minutes of play. Four minutes later saw the first goal of the game when Brendan Toner's shot hit the upright and Chris Loughran reacting quickest to palm the ball to the net. Jack Grugan followed up with a point before two from the opposition left 8 between the sides at the interval.

Rory Grugan edged his side further in front at the beginning of the second half with a pointed free but on the 33rd minute a mix up in the defence saw Culloville grab a goal. Damian McGeown and Rory Grugan exchanged points with that of the opposition and by the 52nd minute a second Culloville goal left just three between the sides. However, the 'Nab regrouped again and finished strong through points from Brian McCone (2), Chris Loughran and Damian McGeown to maintain their postion in mid table.

Team: Sean Hughes, Chris Loughran (1-1), Ruairi Gribben, Kevin Beagan, Dominic McParland (0-1), Michael Beagan, James Gray, Tony McKee, Richard Gribben, Brendan Gribben, Rory Grugan (0-3), Damian McGeown (0-3), Brian McCone (Capt 0-6), Brendan Toner.
