Our seniors travelled to Armagh Harps for a league tie on Friday evening. A below par performance from the lads saw the home side produce their best and recorded a comfortable win on the scoreboard.

Harps dominated the early exchanges, racing into a 6-0 lead and it wasn't until 14th minute that Ballymacnab got off the mark with a point from Ryan Kennedy after linking well with Michael Beagan and Brian McCone. This score kick started the 'Nab into action and after a Gavin McParland point on the 16th minute, Pauric Gribben burst through from the resulting kick out and lobbed the 'keeper for the first goal of the game. Paul Kennedy won the kick out and set up another attack, resulting in a Brian McCone point to level the game after 18 minutes. The teams remained level in the next few attacks with another Brian McCone point followed a point for the Harps. Ballymacnab went into a quick two point lead with a pointed free from Brian McCone and a Damien McGeown point from play. However, Harps finished the half well with points, in between another from Ryan Kennedy, to lead 0-12 to 1-07. Michael Beagan got Ballymacnab off to a perfect start with a point within a minute from the restart but Harps went on to dominate the remainder of the half with Ballymacnab responding on the scoreboard with pointed frees from Gavin McParland and Brian McCone.
