Ballinkillen 0-2 MLR 5-6

This game was played in a very sporting manner in perfect conditions in a sunny McDonald park in Ballinkillen on Saturday the 6th April. The first half finished 0-2 to 1-2 for MLR, the hard-earned Ballinkillen scores coming from Eoin Whelan and Jack Treacy.
The second half won't be remembered with fondness by Ballinkillen players or supporters.
A dominant and skillful MLR team kept Ballinkillen scoreless and helped themselves to 4 goals and 4 points to leave the final score at Ballinkillen 0-2 MLR 5-6.
MLR's Barry Coady and Fiachra Fitzpatrick were impressive in a team that was very strong all round.
Positives for Ballinkillen were the determined displays from James Cummins, Conor Tracey, Sean Smithers and Eamonn Normanly as well as the strong turn out of 22 players for the game.
This was a tough start to the league campaign for our U-12s, but hopefully it will see us in good stead for the rest of the year.

Ballinkillen Team:
Colin Byrne, Louis Brennan, Eoghan Chada, James Cummins, Cian Delaney, Ryan Farrell, Mark Foley, Pat Hickey, Patrick Kavanagh, Aaron Lennon Corcoran, Jack McLoughlin, David Murphy, Donnacha Murphy, Padraig Nolan, Eamonn Normanly, Thomas O'Donoghue, Jack Ryan, Sean Smithers, Adam Tobin, Conor Tracey, Jack Treacy(0-1), Eoin Whelan(0-1).
