It was Ballerin’s greater ability to take their chances that won the game. They led by 0-7 to 0-3 at half time which was a slender enough lead in the after playing with the stiff breeze. Just as it looked like Glenullin might take over Seonaidh Mullan grabbed the all important goal. The defence played brilliantly in the face of strong second half pressure. They enjoyed a reception in the club rooms after the game and will now get geared up for the Ulster championship.
