Junior A Hurling: On Friday the 3/9/21 the lads played the opening game of the championship against Old Christians in Fedamore. Christians raced into the lead with an early point before Bally responded well getting three unanswered scores. Christians then won a penalty which was buried in off the crossbar in an unstoppable shot. Dan McGuire immediately responded with a point before Dan Owens cut the Christians defence wide open and buried a goal for bally. Very soon after Killian Liston caught a high ball on the edge of the square and made absolutely no mistake from six yards out leaving bally ahead at the first water break 2:06 to 1:04. The second quarter was completely controlled by bally who didn’t let old Christians score. Conor McCarthy with two goals in 4 minutes and some well taken scores from all angles of the field saw us leading comfortably at half time 4:12 to 1:04. Bally started the second half where they left off getting four unanswered points before a rally from Old Christians saw them get the score board ticking over again. Haulie then stuck another goal for bally to knock the fightback out of old Christians. In the last quarter the Old Christians keeper made a super save to deny conor mc carthy a certain goal. Bally knocked over a few more scores to run out winners on a score line of 5:24 to 1:08. The lads play Dromcollogher Broadford in round 2 on Saturday night in Croom at 6pm.
