Senior Championship v Ballinamore
Unbelievable match when you consider Annaduff led by 3-5 to 0-5 with 8 minutes of normal time remaining. This match had everything good scores/ bad wides/ great blockdowns/ terrible decision making / great decision making, a chance of a fourth goal for Ballinamore in the final seconds that hit the upright but may have been covered by Conor McLoughlin probably saved Annaduff from defeat however it must be said Annaduff were much the better team for the first 45 minutes.Annaduff led at the break by 1-2 to 0-2 with our goal coming from Ronan McCormack in the 22nd minute after a well taken free from Sean McNabola.The second half was very exciting with Annaduff getting two goals in the 16th and 17th minute from Ray Cox and Joe Cox however Liam Ferguson and Shane Moran showed real skill and fighting spirit in what looked a lost cause for Ballinamore at this stage. Ballinamore scored three goals in the final minutes before Shane McWeeneys last second free gained Ballinamore a priceless point
