County Junior B C’ship v Balla match report
Davitts 2-9 Balla 2-16
Davitts and Balla met in the first round of the Junior B Championship in Ballindine on Saturday evening and it was the visitors that collected the two points after a very impressive display. Balla laid the foundations for this victory in the opening half, building up a 2-9 to 0-4 lead before the break. They shot two goals and four points in the last ten minutes of the first half as Davitts struggled in several positions throughout the field.
Davitts will get some consolation from their spirited second half display especially in the final quarter when they narrowed the deficit to four points with five minutes remaining. Balla fired over the last three points of the game and, on this form, will be a force to be reckoned with in this competition.
