Junior Hurling: Bally played their final adult game of the season losing out to Pallasgreen in the east intermediate semi final on a score line of 2-12 to 1-19. The match was played in wet underfoot conditions in Boher field, the teams were quiet even through out with Bally getting the first goal of the match from Colm Teefy, Daniel Owens had our second goal soon after and we led 2-02 to 0-6 after 20 minutes. Pallas finished the half stronger but points from Daniel Owens placed balls had the teams level at the break 2-04 to 0-10. We re established our lead after the break with points from Michael Martin and Daniel Owens but our opponents responded and the teams were level again half way through the second period. Pallas struck for a goal with ten minutes left on the clock we tried to respond but could not find the levelling goal we required leaving us losing out by four points at the final whistle.

Junior Football: The final group game of the JAFC took place in Martinstown under lights on Tuesday last against table toppers Castlemahon. In a contest that was always going to be a stern test of our lads we battled manfully in the opening half working hard and connecting well throughout the field. Playing on the counter attack for most of the half Daniel McGuire struck for an excellent goal after a lengthy run from half way, this left us with an unlikely lead at the break 1-06 to 0-8. The opposition were soon level after the break and they established a lead that we could not claw back despite our best efforts and we eventually ran out losers on a score line of 0-18 to 1-08.
