Not much too report from tonights game in James Stephens Park. In cold and miserable conditions we lost on a score of 3-14 to 1-7.
The highlights of a first half was a finely taken goal after ten minutes by Pearse Walsh after a high ball in from Aiden McLoughlin and a great penalty save by Sean Kavanagh. Against a strong wind the half time score was Ballina 1-9 Swinford 1-2.
With their lead Ballina were able to sit back in the second half and take us on the counter attack with some good running from deep. The game petered out to a finish.
