Well done to the Kilmeena ladies that fielded a team against Ballyhaunis in the first round of the Group C minor Championship. Kilmeena were tight on numbers with just 15 available to play. Special thanks to the nine U-16 girls that stepped up to play alongside their under 18 team mates this evening. Kilmeena opted to play with the wind in the first half. Lisa Hastings (1-03(1xF), Grace Gibbons (0-02) and Leah Walsh (0-01) got some fine scores from play. Halftime score was 1–06 to 3-04 in favour of Ballyhaunis.
Despite Kilmeena’s best efforts in the second half, the larger panel of players from Ballyhaunis made a difference where they pulled away, outscoring the home side by 3-03 to 0-02. Running from deep, the energetic Aine Gallagher got Kilmeena’s only two scores in the second half.
Final score was Kilmeena 1-08 to Ballyhaunis 6-07. Congratulations to Ballyhaunis and best of luck with the remainder of the competition.
