This Junior A Football championship tie, played at Ballygarvan, was most competitive and some excellent points recorded in the opening half gave Shamrocks a sound base from which to move forward in the game. Ballinhassig put in a big push before half time to see two points between the teams Shamrocks 0-8 Ballinhassig 0-6.


The second half was a tough and demanding period with Ballinhassig bringing out the best in our backline.  Some four excellent points were well deserved and a Ballinhassig penalty goal give them sustenance.  However the lads in green had the wherewithal and the bottle not to concede any more scores before the final whistle.
