Sarsfields 1-8 Ballindereen 1-11

Sarsfields suffered a disappointing 3 point loss to Ballindereen in their first game of this years minor championship played in Bullaun on Wednesday week. Sarsfields started brightly in the first half and a goal from Shane Callanan from a ground stroke had both teams level at 1-4 to 0-7 at half time. Things could have been even better for Sarsfields as Dylan Madden was denied what would have been a great goal by an outstanding save from the Ballindereen goalie. Ballindeereen got on top a little in the second half but points from Ian Kelly and Stephen Earls - a fabulous solo effort- seemed to have secured a victory for Sarsfields. However, a goal and a point late in the game ensured Ballindereen were victorious on a score line of 1-11 to 1-8. The scorers for Sarsfields were Stephen Earls 0-3 (0-2 frees), Shane Cannallan 1-0, Dylan Madden 0-2 (0-1 free) and Ian Kelly 0-2 and Alan Ward 0-1.
