Carlow Town H.C. 0-4  Ballinkillen 3-10

This contest was as one sided as the score line suggests. If there was a contest on this occasion it was left to the Wall family to determine if daddy David could outscore his offspring in any week, as David lined out at corner forward on the junior team scoring 2-03 while Dion produced 0-9 last Sunday for the seniors (a draw in any man's book).

The game was only a minute old when Tommy Cummins set the tone with a well taken goal; then David Wall opened his scoring with a free on the 5th minute. Sean O’ Gorman opened the Carlow Town score with a long range free from inside his own 65, with a stiff wind at his back. Shane Farrell replied for Ballinkillen a minute later after linking up with Tomas Kinsella, driving through the defence and hitting a good point. Tomas Kinsella added on the 18th minute when a 65 was played short for him to slot home. Immediately on the puck out Ballinkillen won the ball - as they did for most puckouts - and worked the ball to Ciaran Canavan to score. David Wall used all his experience to slip in behind the defence for a breaking ball to get Ballinkillen’s second goal with Tommy Cummins scoring the last score of the half from a delivery by Tomas Kinsella. The backs were in total control with Pakie Hughes, Patrick “Salt” Murphy and Vivian Foley in command.

Half time score 2-05 to 0-1, Ballinkillen started the second half as they did the first, this time from Wall scoring his second goal of the evening. David scored the next two points from play before being replaced. Ciaran Canavan added to the Ballinkillen score before Laurence Farrell scored two good points for Carlow town, winning hard ball and converting. Tommy Cummins finished the scoring with a point on the 28th minute to leave the score line 3-10 to 0-4 for the Ballinkillen outfit. In truth Patrick Minchin did not have to do much in goal, backs were in command, center field of Tomas Kinsella and James Cox worked well and forwards always competed with Tommy Phelan, Cummins and Farrell stronger.

Team: Patrick Minchin, Keith Lennon, Paddy Foley, Pakie Hughes, Vivian Foley, Patrick Murphy, Lorcan Kinsella, Tomas Kinsella 0-1, James Cox, Tommy Phelan, Shane Farrell 0-2, Ciaran Canavan 0-2, Paul Brenan, Tommy Cummins 1-2, David Wall 2-3. Subs James Nolan, Larry Doyle
