The under 14 footballers had a comfortable win over Castledawson, they ran up a 5-13 to 1-3 interval lead allowing the subs a run in the second half. Ballerin ending up winners by 5-19 to 2-05.
Jordan Hyndman was the shooting star scoring 4-4, the other scorers were Shane McIntyre 1-3 Daniel Walton 0-4, Matthew Connolly 0-3, Killian Mullan 0-2, Stephen Ferris, Dylan Mullan, Brendan Harkin 0-1 each.
This week’s game is a difficult away game at Lissan where we have had some great under 14 games in the past.
Congratulations to senior footballer Stephen Mullan who got married on Saturday.
The Golf Day last Friday at the Roe Park Limavady was very successful and the weather was kind.
Best of Luck to Derry at Celtic Park on Sunday.
The seniors travel to Magilligan on Wednesday evening in the first round of the James O’Hagan Cup.
The under 14 footballers suffered their first league defeat when they were well beaten by a very good Drumsurn team on a final score of 1-20 to 1-6. However there was little indication at half time that Drumsurn would win by such a wide margin as they led by just 0-6 to 0-3 at that stage.
The Ballerin scorers were Colstas Papachristopololus 1-1, Shane McIntyre 0-4 and Daniel Walton 0-1.
Not a good result for the seniors at Limavady where they suffered a heavy defeat with an understrength team. Even so it was a poor performance, they started well but the loss of Paul Ferris the team’s leading scorer mid way through the first half was a blow.
For variety of reasons they were without Eugene Mullan, Paul Keane, Pascal McKay, Joe Doherty, Leigh and Mark Ferris, to add to the problems both Paul Ferris and Gary Keane went off injured.
With injuries mounting and tough games coming up against Claudy and Foreglen it will take a big effort to get back on the winning trail. The scorers were Liam Brown 1-0, Damien Cassidy and Shane Ferris 1-0 each, Pascal Hull, Gary Keane and Paul Ferris 0-1 each.
