Game NotesKiltimagh won their fifth game on the bounce when they defeated Ballina in round 6 of the league. Kiltimagh showed their resilience in this game as they were under pressure from Ballina’s lively forwards for large parts of the game. However, some tremendous defending ensured that no green flag was raised at the Kiltimagh end. Ballina opened the scoring with a free and Liam Lydon fisted over to tie matters up. Kiltimagh took the lead soon after with a splendid Steve McDonnell point. However, Ballina then hit a purple patch and scored the next 6 points in a row to lead 0-7 to 0-2 after 20 minutes. A Ronan Malee free was followed by a David Lydon point and Kiltimagh were back in the game with 3 points between the sides. Ballina stretched it out to 4 again before Sean Forkan hit over Kiltimagh’s fifth point. As the half drew to a close, Ballina hit another point and it looked like they would lead by 0-4 at the break, and in fairness, that would not have flattered them such was their dominance at times in the first half. However, Kiltimagh were to have the final say of the half and Sean Walsh blasted the ball to the net to leave just the minimum between the sides at the short whistle. While Ballina stretched their lead after the break, Kiltimagh eventually came to grips with the Ballina challenge. David Lydon burst through to hit a cracker of a goal and put Kiltimagh ahead for the first time in 30 minutes. A Malee free extended the lead to 2 and then the teams exchanged points with TJ Byrne hitting over a free from the right of the posts. Ballina hit back and sent over 4 points to lead by 2 with 10 minutes remaining. David Lydon brought that back to a single point but another Ballina point took it back to 2. Then as Liam Lydon was bearing down on goal, he was upended in the square and a penalty resulted. Eoghan Lavin, just on the field, made no mistake and sent a scorcher to the net to put Kiltimagh ahead again. Ballina did their best to equalise but Lavin again was centre stage when he hit over a 45 to close out the game for Kiltimagh.
