The Senior Football team secured their Senior status with style on Saturday afternoon with a fantastic performance against Fingallians. They had the perfect start and had scored 2-08 in the first 25 minutes while Fingallians could only muster up 1-01. The two first half goals game from Shane McCann and it looked like Ballinteer were going to have a lot to spare as they 2-08 to 1-02 at half time. However Fingallians didn’t lie down and came firing back in the second half with 3 goals, reducing the deficit to just 4 points a one stage. This didn’t stop Ballinteer however who went and scored another goal through Nicky Deveraux. The game ended 3-11 to 4-02. The victory insures Senior football in Ballinteer for the 13th year in a row. Congratulations to the whole team and management.
