The lads had a home game in this round when Tourlestrane were visitors on Wednesday. There was a strong wind towards the Ballina end which the visitors had in the first half.
We started well but were 3 points down when Tourlestrane were awarded a close in free which was smached to the net, They also scored a soft goal just before the break to leave them leading 2-4 v 0-0.
Things did not improve at the start of the second half when the visitors scored 1-1 in the first few minutes. At last our lads started to play and the defensive bravery of Colm Naughton was easily seen. Paul Flynn went on a scoring spree and got his first goal after a pass from Kenneth Flynn, he then scored a long range goal after a pass from James Boland. He then proceeded to score a 65 after a good save by the opposition keeper. Odhran Quinn put him through for his final score.
The team were now playing as a team but they left their final comeback too late and ended up losing 3-1 v 4-4.
Team: Dáire Barrins, James Boland, Ronán Wilson, Colm Naughton, Jason Tuffy, Odhrán Quinn, Paul Flynn, Kenneth Flynn, Fergal Boland, Owen Gillard, Brian Durkan, Oisín Flynn
