Ballymac u16 boys played St Pats Blennerville away on Wednesday the 21st of June in the first game of the County League.

Ballymac played this game short many of their regular starters; in fact, they had just fifteen players. Ballymac started the brighter and were first to score with a goal from Jack Tobin. A couple of minutes later this was cancelled out when the home side goaled.

Two points apiece for each team left the score after ten minutes at 1-02 each. Ballymac then hit a purple match and went on to score 1-04 before a reply came from St. Pat’s. The goal came from Jack Tobin, two points from Daragh Broderick and a point each from David Rogers and Adam Joy.

St Pat’s hit back with two points before half time. Daragh Broderick kicked one more for Ballymac to leave the half time score at St. Pat’s 1-05 to Ballymac 2-07. St Pat’s laid down a marker in the first ten minutes of the second half and registered 3-01 before David Rogers kicked a point for Ballymac.

From then on until the final whistle it was all one-way traffic as St Pat’s ended up with a final score of 6-14. One more point from Daragh Broderick left the final score at St.Pat’s 6.14 to Ballymac 2-09

The U14A team travelled to Mallow on Saturday the 24th of June to participate in the Munster Feile Competition where Ballymac competed alongside some of the top clubs throughout Munster.

With Clubs in attendance such are Nemo Rangers, Eire Og, Ballincollig and Kenmare a great days football was a certainty.

Ballymac were in Group 3 alongside Cork Premier 1 champions Eire Og and Clare Div 1 runners up Ennistymon. First up was Eire Og, which proved to be cracking game of football which set the tone the Ballymac boys, and this was maintained for the rest of the day. Ballymac edged this one on a score line of 2-04 to 1-04.

Next up were the Clare footballers Ennistymon and with confidence high Ballymac controlled this game from start to finish and won on a score line of 3 07 to 1-02.

It was now Semi-Final time and it was another Cork team for us. Midleton were the opposition and it took Ballymac time to settle into this game. Much credit is due to this team for a never say die attitude where they came from behind to win this one on a score line of 1-05 to 0-07. We were now in the final and were up against Ballincollig of Cork. The word around

Mallow all day was that this team were firm favorites’ to win the competition outright and to their credit, they delivered.

However this was an enthralling final which quite simply had everything a final should have with both teams serving up some outstanding passages of play, with 8 goals and some fantastic point taking it was simply breathtaking to have Ballymac playing out of their skin in a Munster Final.

Unfortunately Ballincollig had that little extra on the day and won on a score line of 5-04 to 3-06. This was a Fantastic day out for Ballymac and to come away with the runners up medal in Munster Feile is a credit to all players and management involved and gives great confidence going forward as a group.

Our U14A team played their first round of the Division 1 Central Region against Castlegregory away last Monday evening the 19th of June and were beaten on a score line of Castlegregory 0-16 Ballymac 1-11.

Our U14B boys played Castleisland Desmonds in Ballymac last Monday evening the 19th of June in Division 3 of the Central Region. We came up against a very strong Desmond’s team who outplayed our boys on the evening and were comprehensive winners on a score line of Ballymac 2-03 Castleisland Desmonds 5-21.

Next up for the U14 A boys is a home fixture against Na Gaeil on Thursday the 29th of June at 7.00pm. The next game for the B team is an away trip to Annascaul/Lispole next Tuesday the 27th of June at 7.15 in Lispole


Blue Team Division 4

The under 12 blue team finished their Co. League campaign in fine style winning away in Beaufort on Sunday the 18th of June.

This was easily the team’s best display in the league. Most notable was their blocking down and long-range point taking. The team were excellent throughout and even with Beaufort came at us in the second half the lads responded brilliantly.

Tommy Palmer was again sound in goals. M. Culloty, P. Heffernan, Aiden, and Luke Horgan were outstanding in defense. Our midfield pairing of D. Calvin and S. Rice worked tirelessly and were very impressive.

Our forwards consisting of M. Prendergast, N. Collins, R. Lowe and S. Mansfield showed real class and scoring ability which gave us a big lead and Beaufort had no way back. Evan Boyle when introduced was excellent as was A. Marquez. The final score was Ballymac 5-22 to Beaufort 5-13.

There is a 3 to 4 week break until the next competition, which will be the Central Region competition. Ballymac U12 boys took part in the Diarmuid O’ Brien memorial football blitz in Newmarket last Saturday the. 24th of June.

Ballymac under 12 boys (blue team) competed in the Diarmaid o Brien annual blitz in Newmarket on Saturday 24th of June.

Ballymac had won this the previous two years. The team were in a very competitive group consisting of Croke Rovers, Firies and St. Peters. Missing two regular starters due to holidays did not help and the team found the competition tough. They played Croke Rovers in their first match and led for most of the first half but then conceded three goals at crucial times in the second half and never recovered.

Croke Rovers went on to win by six points. We played our neighbors’ Firies in the next match and the team were much improved. Having lost to Firies earlier in the Co. League Ballymac really put it up to them and it was only in the closing stages of the game that Firies got the scores to win it.

This meant we were out of the competition but our last game was against St.Peters and this was where the boys played their best football. A brilliant display of passing and scoring resulted in a 4-05 to 0-00 win.

The experience gained on the day against tough opposition can only stand to the players. They did their very best but just came up short on the day. The mentors were very proud of the boys on the way they represented Ballymac.

The panel on the day were, Tommy Palmer, Michael Culloty, Padraig Heffernan, Luke Horgan, Aidan Horgan, Sean Rice, Diarmaid Galvin, Niall Collins, Raymond Lowe, Sam Mansfield, Cian McCarthy, Michael Savage, Alvero Marquez, Michael Prendergast and Shane Gilroy.
