We played Laune Rangers B at home in the central division on Monday 30th in what was definitely a game of two halves .Rangers started in fine style gaoling inside two minutes.

Ballymac then took over and goals from Dara Chawke and Cillian Gallagher coupled with points form Daire Keane,(0-4) Cillian, Davy Rodgers and Tadhg Brick(0-2) had us 2-8 to 1-0 ahead midway through the half.

Cillian scored another 1-1 and points from Liam O’Brien, James Carmody, Dara Chawke and D Rodgers had us 3-13 to 2-0 ahead at the break.

Rangers, who travelled with a big squad, introduced some subs at half time, and these had a telling impact on the game. They goaled immediately on the restart and any thoughts we had of winning easily quickly vanished. They added another 2-4 to cut the gap to 3 points at the midway point.

Two points each from Cillian and Dara Keane extended our lead , but Rangers replied with 2-1 to level the scores. A well taken goal by Josh lifted the siege, followed by a Davy Rodgers point and Daire Keane goal. Rangers again replied with 1-1 ,but thankfully there was no more time left and we held on to win by 3 points.

TEAM : E Culloty, D Dunne, C Dunne ,K Lenihan, D Leen,L O ‘Brien, C Godley, T Brick, J O’Keeffe,C Gallagher, D Rodgers, J Carmody ,D Chawke, D Keane, D Lynch, Subs J Sugrue, J Lowe, E Leahy.
