U18 LEAGUE DIV 2

April 19th 2019 – Minor League Division 2

Ballintubber 2-16 The Neale 2-8
As reported by Oisín McGovern.
Our Minor team impressed in Division 2 with a solid victory over The Neale on Friday evening. An open, attacking 13-a-side game was served up by both sides with an abundance of kick-passing, but it was John McHale and Gary Dillon’s charges who won out with superior firepower. All but one of our forwards finished with at least two scores to their name while Alan McHale was lively throughout and had a huge hand in setting up goals for Bobby Reilly and Robbie Finnerty. At the back Magnus Malone and Jack Walsh stood out for the Red and White with a number of key interventions while Bobby Reilly and Cillian Redmond worked tirelessly at midfield.
It was the Neale who lead in the early stages when they cancelled out Stephen Burke’s opening score with a goal after a solo run from their corner-forward. The visitors added a pointed free before the Abbeysiders fought back, with Stephen Burke sending a beautiful foot pass into Alan McHale who wove his way inside to set up Bobby Reilly who drove home the ball from close range.
We would stretch our lead to six points over the next twenty minutes as Reilly, Robbie Finnerty, Josh Mahon and Adam Lally all raised white flags. The visitors were awarded a penalty three minutes from the break which they duly converted before adding a point to their tally a minute later, leaving the half-time score at 1-8 to 2-3.
The Neale would level matters with two unanswered points before a quick succession of scores from Robbie Finnerty steered us back in front. The younger brother of Conor and Jamsie Finnerty hit over two points before Alan McHale gave him a sublime foot-pass which, after some good work on Finnerty’s part, ended up nestled in the back of the net. A point each from Damien Jennings, Josh Mahon and Stephen Burke put us eight points ahead just before the fifty-minute mark.
Our goalie Matthew Coyne wasn’t found wanting when called upon to smother a serious attempt on goal by the away side, one which could well have swung the momentum had it gone in. Nonetheless, our Minors saw the game out comfortably as Damien Jennings pointed his second score before Robert Finnerty added his fifth and sixth points.

SENIOR LEAGUE 4 V TOURMAKEADY

SENIOR LEAGUE 4 V TOURMAKEADY
April 14th 2019 
Mayo Senior League Division 4 
Ballintubber 2-16 Tourmakeady 4-2 
As reported by Oisín McGovern. 
Our Junior team made it two emphatic wins from two for Ballintubber this weekend with an impressive victory in Tourmakeady today. It was our blend of youth and experienced which saw us come out on top in this local derby in cold and blustery weather conditions. Our half-forward line of Seanie Larkin, Hugh Geraghty and Noel Geraghty were all superb while veteran Paul Earley never put a foot wrong at centre-back. Similarly, rookies Jack Walsh and Finian Bourke gave assured displays in defence while Stephen Broderick controlled midfield well. Indeed, such was our dominance that our winning margin would have been well into the double digits had it not been for two late goals from the home side. Nonetheless, Jackie Heneghan, Michael Kerrigan, Gerry Dillon and Martin Finnerty will no doubt take plenty of positives from this performance as we prepare to face the Gaeltacht side in the championship later on in the year. 
The home side registered the first score through a David Dolan free in the first minute before a Darragh McGovern point got us off the mark. The Geraghty brothers, Hugh and Noel, then strung together four fine scores before corner-back Finian Bourke added a single. Subsitute Jarlath Staunton, a defender by trade, impressed immediately after his introduction to the forward line with a pair of well-taken scores. 
We proceeded to turn the screw in the final minute of the first half when Alan McHale, making his first start for our Juniors, fed Darragh McGovern who palmed the ball into the back of the Tourmakeady net. However the home side briefly rallied to win a penalty which Kevin Dolan dispatched hard and low past Niall Staunton. 
The home side landed another goal after the break when a high ball was n bundled into the net, leaving the scores at 1-10 to 2-1. The home side added a second point but a point from Noel Geraghty and a massive strike from brother Hugh nudged us two points further ahead. 
Niall Staunton was forced to make a save at one point but we pressed ahead nonetheless. Substitute Dean Loftus added a point while also having a powerful shot saved, which was eventually sent over the bar by Noel Geraghty. Seanie Larkin capped a fine performance with five minutes to go when he intercepted a kick-out before firing home a daisy-cutter of a shot for our second goal. 
A pair of somewhat flukey goals from the hosts provided some consolation in the dying minutes, but the outcome of this game had been all but decided a long time before. 
Ballintubber team that lined out: (1)Niall Staunton (2)Jack Walsh (3)Kevin Shannon (4)Finian Bourke (0-1) (5)Gavin Roache (6)Paul Earley (7)John Kerrigan  (17)David McHale (9)Stephen Broderick (0-1) (10)Noel Geraghty (0-4) (11)Hugh Geraghty (0-6, 5f) (12)Seanie Larkin (1-0) (13)Seamus Thomas (14)Darragh McGovern (1-1) (15)Alan McHale

SENIOR CHAMPIONSHIP 2019 GAME 1

April 13th 2019 
Mayo Senior Football Championship
Ballintubber 0-18 Hollymount 1-3
Our defence of the Moclair Cup has gotten off to the perfect start in “The Saucer” today with an emphatic victory over Hollymount/Carramore. Leading by four points at half time we completely controlled the game in the second half, so much so that apart from a solitary Robert Molloy effort at the death, the home side failed to score in the second half. Fine displays in the Red and White jersey were too numerous to name, as we were on top in every single department. Mayo football was given a huge lift when Cillian O’Connor strode onto the pitch in the second half, chipping in with a point and was very unlucky not to finish with a goal. 
Playing with a powerful breeze at our backs we clocked up six unanswered points through Ciaran Gavin, Diarmuid O’Connor, Stephen O’Malley and Michael Plunkett in the first twenty minutes. Having struggled to seriously get going, the home side started to make a game of it when Kevin Feerick blasted home a goal and a point. A point from Darren Coen briefly brought it back to a one-point game. Indeed, it would prove to be one of the only occasions on which he bested Gary Loftus, who marshalled the Mayo panellist superbly all afternoon. A pair of points from Alan Dillon (including one superb score from distance) and a single from Stephen O’Malley left the scores at 0-9 to 1-2 in our favour at the break.
If anything, Kevin Johnson’s men went up a few gears facing into a formidable second half breeze. Our domination of possession and midfield was almost total, as Hollymount/Carramore could scarcely lay a glove on us at times. All nine of our second-half points were reeled off with barely as much as a whimper from the home side, who rarely even came close to scoring. Stephen O’Malley and Keelan McDonnell landed early points before D’OC split the posts with a screamer from a distance that beggared belief.
Mid-way through the second half and with the result all but secured, Padraic O’Connor made way for younger brother Cillian who got to work immediately. His first major contribution came when he shook the side netting of the opposition goalmouth with a serious attempt on goal. Another pair of points from Stephen O’Malley followed before Mayo’s leading point-scorer raised his first white flag of the year. Indeed, the Cranmore marksman might’ve made it a perfect comeback when yet another goal attempt walloped off the crossbar before finding its way to Jason Gibbons who settled for a point.
The hosts had been kept scoreless for an entire 31 minutes before Robert Molloy pointed a consolation, the only blot on what was an otherwise seriously impressive performance from our Seniors.

Senior League Div 1 Game 1

March 31st 2019 Mayo Senior League Division 1
Ballintubber 0-10 Breaffy 0-10
Once again, a winner could not be determined. The fact that the last four meetings between these two teams has yielded a total winning margin of one solitary point say it all about the gap between us and our nearest neighbours. Many will remember that the point in question came in the form of a bolt from the heavens from the left boot of Diarmuid O’Connor, which sent the Moclair Cup to Ballintubber for the fourth time on that famous October evening. Unfortunately, the Mayo captain wasn’t on hand to deliver the clincher on Saturday evening as we found ourselves level in injury time, but unable to break the deadlock. In fairness, a draw was a fair result given the general run of play, as these two teams proved yet again that there is almost nothing to separate them, even without their respective Mayo panellists.
As the score line suggests, this was yet another tit-for-tat arm-wrestle between our championship rivals. It was the Breaffy men that capitalised on a number of early mistakes by the Red and White and initially took the lead with three unanswered points. Brian Walsh and Alan Dillon tagged on scores before Tommy Reilly and Stephen McDermott stretched their lead back to 3 points. Points from the boots of Stephen O’Malley and Alan Plunkett reduced the deficit to two before O’Malley sent a massive free a massive free straight over “the black dot” to leave the scores 0-7 0-6 at half-time.
Goal chances were at a premium in the second half, with Alan Plunkett shooting our best chance wide after weaving his way towards the Breaffy goalmouth. During this time, the visitors retained the lead with Colm Quinn firing off a rocket of a shot from out near Tourmakeady for their tenth and final point. Undeterred, our lads kept pace as Stephen O’Malley and Brian Walsh chalked up crucial scores. Jason Gibbons dominated at centre field while Alan Dillon’s clever play at full-forward provided a steadying hand for our attack. Indeed the Mayo legend had a huge hand in negating Breaffy’s two-point lead, first sending over a huge free with the outside of the boot before turning provider for Brian Walsh to level the game.
With the scores at 0-10 a piece we went in search of a winner. However the few chances we mustered would ultimately go a begging, with Ciarán Gavin arguably coming closest with a daring toe-poke from near the end line which flew wide. In the end both points were shared and we are yet again none the wiser as to who are the better team.
Ballintubber team that lined out: (1)Brendan Walsh (2)Gary Loftus (3)Joe Geraghty (4)Finian Bourke (5)Myles Kelly (6)Damien Coleman (7)Keelan McDonnell (8)Jason Gibbons (9)Ciarán Gavin (10)Noel Geraghty (11)Alan Plunkett (0-1) (12)Brian Walsh (0-3) (13)Padraic O’Connor (14)Alan Dillon (0-2, 1f) (15)Stephen O’Malley (0-4, 3f)

KELL CUP SEMI FINAL

KELL CUP SEMI FINAL

March 16th 2019 Kelly Cup Semi-Final

Ballintubber 0-8 Burrishoole 2-7

Our interest in the Kelly Cup was ended by Burrishoole in Islandeady today, with a pair of second half goals from the Clew Bay side proving enough to see them through comfortably. Despite an impressive first-half showing from the Red and White we were well off the pace in the second half, with wet and windy weather conditions doing us no favours. In the end we never came close to turning Burrishoole over as we only pointed twice in the second half.

A quartet of points from the Abbeysiders saw us take a three point lead after 11 minutes. It was in the first half that we played out best football, with young guns Keelan McDonnell and Stephen O’Malley pointing while Ciaran Gavin landed three white flags in his first outing of the season.

With us leading by a point at the break, Burrishoole were a different team in the second half. We were left reeling when they netted a goal after Tom McGing’s punched clearance fell in the direction of their corner-forward who soccer-styled to the back of the net.

From then on, we lost our shape as the men from the barony pointed two more unanswered scores. It wasn’t until the 16th minute that Alan Plunkett pointed our first score of the half before our opponents killed off the game when David Hanley slid a low shot home for their second goal, leaving the scores at 2-7 to 0-7 with less than fifteen minutes remaining.

Facing into a more defensive Burrishoole unit as sleet began to fall, we failed to find a way back into the game, with a solitary point from Padraig O’Connor at the death proving to be the only dent we could make in our opponents lead.

Attentions will no doubt now turn to the opening round of the Mayo Senior League, where we will once again lock horns with Breaffy with an almost full complement of Mayo players available to both sides.

Ballintubber team that lined out: (1)Tom McGing (2)Myles Kelly (3)Gary Loftus (4)Finian Bourke (5)Damien Coleman (6)Hugh Geraghty (7)Jarlath Staunton (8)Brian Walsh (9)Ciaran Gavin (0-3, 2f) (10)Keelan McDonnell (0-1) (17)Alan Plunkett (0-1) (12)Noel Geraghty (30)Jamsie Finnerty (14)Padraig O’Connor (0-1) (15)Stephen O’Malley (0-2, 2f)

March 3rd 2019 – Kelly Cup Round 3

March 3rd 2019 – Kelly Cup Round 3

Ballintubber 3-14 Castlebar 1-9

Our seniors claimed their first win of the 2019 season today as we dealt a heavy defeat to a severely under-strength Castlebar Mitchels side. While it was nowhere near the gladiatorial two-game saga we witnessed between these sides back in October, this was nonetheless an entertaining and open affair for most of the afternoon. Despite a sub-par second half display, an emphatic first-half scoring blitz meant that this was a done deal at half-time. If nothing else it was a timely reminder of what we are capable of when we click as Kevin Johnson’s men played some lovely attacking football at times.

Mitchels had initially led briefly at the start when points from Conor Melvin and Eamon Tierney cancelled out Jason Gibbons’ fisted point. Three unanswered points the followed from Keelan McDonnell, Gibbons and Stephen O’Malley before a Michael Plunkett free found Brian Walsh to drill home our first goal. From then on, we were well in front. Four points followed from Noel Geraghty, Stephen O’Malley and Stephen Finnerty before Padraig O’Connor set up Michael Plunkett for the Mayo panellist to fire a low shot into the net.

Mitchel’s weren’t for rolling over though, as they pointed three scores of their own before Conor Melvin beat Brendan Walsh to land the visitors’ only goal. We stretched our lead yet again as Stephen O’Malley and Jason Gibbons landed points as the Red and White began to really put the foot down. When Michael Plunkett raised a second green flag with a low shot after an assist from Brian Walsh, the contest was effectively finished Jason Gibbons pointed his fourth score in what was a very impressive half-hour from the man from Annies, leaving the score at a staggering 3-11 to 1-6 at the break.

With management making four changes at half-time, the second half proved to be a much less exciting affair, with Mithels only landing two points while we failed to score from play. Tubber’s young guns showed well during this time, with Darragh McGovern, Gavin Roache, Matthew Fox, Jack Walsh and goalkeeper Niall Staunton all getting game time. Three pointed frees from Noel Geraghty, Stephen O’Malley and Padraig O’Connor were all we chalked up in the last half-hour with the elder O’Connor coming close adding a fourth goal for us at one point.

KELLY CUP R2

KELLY CUP R2

February 24th 2019

Kelly Cup Round 2

Ballintubber 0-11 Westport 1-9

Our seniors fell short this afternoon against a Westport side that were a fraction sharper and more clinical both on and off the ball. It could’ve gone either way, but our lads lacked a killer edge that might’ve seen us come away with a win today. Stephen O’Malley was our main man up front while last year’s Minor captain Finian Bourke marked his first Senior start with a typical no-nonsense display at corner-back.

It was a brilliantly-taken goal from Westport that proved to be the game’s decisive moment, as it drove a wedge between both teams that we couldn’t plug in the second half. Deprived of the services of three of the O’Connors and Mayo U20s Jamsie Finnerty and Ciarán Gavin, the Red and White will no doubt shift gears in the coming weeks as the Senior League approaches.

With Clogher temporarily decommissioned, Ballintubber Resource Centre hosted Tony Duffy’s up-and-coming Westport team. Playing on a heavy surface, it was the visitors who started stronger. Their tally read 1-6 by the 22nd minute after Westport’s wing-back nestled the ball in the back of the net after firing a bullet of a shot across the goal past the outstretched Tom McGing. Two Noel Geraghty frees were all we accumulated in that period of time before Brian Walsh pointed our first score from play. Points from Alan Plunkett and another Noel Geraghty free followed, brining our half-time tally to 0-5.

Stephen O’Malley was our stand-out player over the sixty minutes, winning plenty of frees in the first half before swinging over his first dead ball shortly after the restart. The former Rice College marksmen pointed a lovely effort from play before the evergreen Alan Dillon kicked a peach of a point from distance shortly after being introduced.

Colm Moran was a constant thorn in our side, kicking a fine score along with midfielder Shane Scott to push the Covies three-points in front again. O’Malley and substitute Stephen Finnerty swung over frees before the end, but an equaliser proved elusive. The fresh legs of Damien Coleman, Jarlath Staunton, and Stephen Finnerty helped us make one last push for a draw, but Westport did not yield. Stephen O’Malley saw a final shot fly wide at the very end, as the whistle blew exactly on the hour mark, leaving Tony Duffy’s side to come away with both points.

Ballintubber team that lined out: (1)Tom McGing (2)Gary Loftus (3)Joe Geraghty (4)Finian Bourke (5)Seanie Larkin (6)Hugh Geraghty (7)John Kerrigan (8)David McHale (9)Jason Gibbons (10)Noel Geraghty (0-4, 4f) (11)Brian Walsh (0-1) (12)Keelan McDonnell (13)Alan Plunkett (0-1) (14)Padraig O’Connor (15) Stephen O’Malley (0-3, 2f)

Kelly Cup Round 1

Kelly Cup Round 1
February 17th 2019 
Kelly Cup Round 1 
Ballintubber 0-8 Breaffy 0-8 
There’s rarely more than a kick of a ball between these two teams and that was exactly how it panned out today as we shared the points with Breaffy in Ballyheane. In truth, this was true February football as far as the scoreboard and the overall atmosphere was concerned. Nonetheless, a relatively young Ballintubber team showed well for most of the game against a very evenly matched Breaffy team. Senior debuts were handed out to Keelan McDonnell and substitutes Finian Bourke and Matthew Fox, with manager Kevin Johnson no doubt looking to strengthen the depth of his panel in the run-up to the opening round of the championship. 
With both teams lining out without any of their Mayo Senior or U20 players, corner-forward Stephen Finnerty opened the scoring for the Red and White followed by points from team captain Alan Plunkett and Stephen O’Malley. All the while full-back battled diligently with Breaffy danger man Liam Irwin, with the Cartoonbower man ensuring that the former Minor and U21 All-Ireland winner didn’t register a score from play by full time. 
Although we strung together some nice passing moves against the wind, we only registered one more score before the half time whistle through Noel Geraghty as the score read 0-4 a piece at the break. 
With neither team firing on all cylinders, the second half would prove to be a similar low-scoring affair, far removed from the white heat of the championship which we witnessed back in October. A pair of frees from Stephen O’Malley and a single from Alan Plunkett put us a point ahead before Darragh McGovern was red-carded for a high challenge midway through the half. Now with an extra man, the home team pressed forward, threatening the goal on at least two occasions without forcing a save from Brendan Walsh. However, their accuracy was very poor and we went a point in front when substitute Padraic O’Connor pointed after a neat exchange with Alan Plunkett. Breaffy struck an equalizer shortly afterwords but neither team could strike the killer blow in the remaining seven minutes, meaning it was honours even at Jarlath Killeen’s full-time whistle. A home encounter with Mitchels awaits us in Round 2. 
Ballintubber team that lined out: (16)Brendan Walsh (2)Gary Loftus (3)Joe Geraghty (4)Jarlath Staunton (5)Seanie Larkin (6)Hugh Geraghty (7)John Kerrigan (8)David McHale (9)Brian Walsh (10)Keelan McDonnell (17)Alan Plunkett  (0-2) (12) Noel Geraghty (0-1, 1f) (13)Stephen Finnerty (0-1) (14)Darragh McGovern (15)Stephen O’Malley (0-3, 3f)

U21 B Championship

December 2nd 2018

Mayo U21 ‘B’ Championship Group 3


Kilmeena 4-9 Ballintubber 0-17


Our interest in the U21 ‘B’ Championship was ended in Ballintubber this afternoon at the hands of a battling Kilmeena outfit. Having beaten us at home in this competition last year, an audacious four-goal smash ‘n’ grab in the second half was enough to see the lads from Clew Bay run out four-point winners. 
Despite falling short at the group stages today without the services of the inured Stephen O’Malley and Finian Bourke, this group has certainly shown some promise under the mentorship of Damien Coleman, Cathal Hallinan, Stephen Broderick and Seanie Larkin. All but a few of those that featured today will be eligible for this grade next year, and will no doubt feature heavily for our Juniors and Seniors in the near future.
Played out in wet, slippery conditions, we pointed in the first minute through Parke native Jack Doocey, who gave an excellent display at midfield today in his adopted Red and White jersey. Kilmeena then rattled off five unanswered scores, with danger man Jack Carney leading the way in the scoring. Matthew Fox and Hugh Geraghty then pointed before Noel Geraghty took his point when a goal was on. Three frees from Senior regular Ciarán Gavin and a neat point from Jamsie Finnerty left us us 0-8 0-6 ahead at the break.
We shifted up a gear after the throw-in, with Jack Doocey, Cillian Redmond, Darragh McGovern and Keelan McDonnell all pointing to give us a commanding seven-point lead. The white flag had barely been raised to signal Keelan McDonnell’s score when a slick passing move from the visitors saw Jack Carney firing home their first goal. We were hit another right hook a minute later when a high ball was fielded on the end line by a Kilmeena player who passed to his midfield partner Ryan McGonigle to raise a second green flag.
A point from Jamsie Finnerty stretched our lead back to two as we headed into the final ten minutes, but Kilmeena were very much now smelling blood. Disaster struck in the twenty-fifth minute when a high ball was mishandled by ‘Tubber shot-stopper Niall Staunton before being bundled into the net by an alert Kilmeena player.
Having been seven points ahead earlier on in the half, we now found ourselves trailing a rampant opposition by a point. Despite our best efforts, Kilmeena were now very much in the driver’s seat as Jack Carney fired over a single. We were then clinically finished off when one of the visitors’ subs drove a piledriver of a shot past Aaron Mannion towards the end of normal time.
Not content to accept our fate, we pushed hard in injury time for a draw that may have seen us through to the knock-out stages. Jamsie Finnerty fired over the last score of 2018 by a Ballintubber player to bring the deficit back to four, but it made little difference to a Kilmeena outfit that ran out deserved winners in the end.
Ballintubber team that lined out: (1)Niall Staunton (2)Jack Walsh (4)Luke Murphy (5)Aaron Lally (6)Hugh Geraghty (0-1) (7)Ciarán Gavin (0-5, 5f) (8)Jack Doocey (0-2) (9)Keelan McDonnell (0-1) (10)Matthew Fox (0-2, 1f) (11)Noel Geraghty (0-1) (12)Cillian Redmond (0-1) (13)Jamsie Finnerty (0-3) (15)Darragh McGovern (0-1)
