Ladies footballers just lose out to Man O War

The Ladies footballers were in action against Man O War last Wednesday. It was always going to be a tight affair with Johns having suffered defeat at the hands of the same opposition the previous week. Man O War got off to the better start and a couple of opportune goals saw them head into half time with a five point lead.

The momentum swung in the second half with Johns closing the gap between the two sides with some nicely taken points. Ballinteer began piling on the pressure and were unlucky not to convert some good goal chances in the closing stages of the match. In the end Johns fell just short, succumbing to a one point loss on a scoreline of 2-05 to 0-10 to Man O War.

Next up is a home game to Parnells in Marlay on Wednesday, 10th June. Throw in is 7:30.
