A below par performance on Saturday evening away to Whitecross saw the seniors go down by two points.

The home side opened their account with a point from a close range free on the 3rd minute. Ballymacnab responded immediately firstly through a spectacular point from Gareth Watters and another from Brendan Gribben after being set up by Brian McCone. The home side responded by cutting through the 'Nabs rearguard and scored what proved to be the only goal of the game. Both sides were guilty of missing a number of score able chances with the next score coming from a Jack Grugan free on the 14th minute before Whitecross extended their lead with a brace of points from frees. However, Ballymacnab finished the half on a positive note with two well taken points coming from Jack Grugan and Ryan Kennedy to leave a point in arrears at half time.

Whitecross added a point with the resumption of the game but points from Dominic McParland and a free from Brian McCone levelled the game on the 40th minute. Whitecross hit the front once more and lead by three by the 53rd minute. Good play from Gareth Watters set up Brian McCone for a point and a Damian McGeown point left just one between the sides on the 55th minute. As Ballymacnab 'pushed on' for an equalising score it came on the 59th minute through a Brian McCone point from the dead ball. The game was now up for grabs but it was the opposition who grabbed the initiative and add two points to record the win.
