ACHL Division 4
Our Junior hurlers got their league up and running versus Portlaoise in Pairc Ui Faolain on Saturday evening. In a close fought match, they lost by 1 point.
ACFL Division 2
On Sunday at the refixed time of 4pm our Intermediate footballers took on Clonaslee St Manmans in Cappinrush. Sporting quite a few sore heads from the previous evenings celebrations Ballyfin took a bit to get going, but can consider themselves unlucky to go in at the break down 1-7 to 2 points. The management moved around a few personnel at the break and it seemed to make the difference. We made a great comeback with goals from Kevin Murphy and a Peter Brophy to get within a point of the visitors with the game going into injury time. Unfortunately that one last chance to get a draw didn’t come our way and we lost by a point on a score line of Ballyfin 2-06 Clonaslee/St. Manmans 1-10.
Keep an eye on the fixtures section for all this weeks games.
