Seniors start off with Victory

There was a good start to the season for the Senior Footballers and Junior A Footballers on Sunday as they both started their Cup campaigns with victories.

The Seniors travelled to Dalkey for an 11am throw in V Cuala and they got off to the perfect start with 3 unanswered points and an impressive start by Gary Mitchell, slotting two over the bar early on. Cuala battled back a small bit but Ballinteer kept matching them and the score was 8 points to 4 at half time. In the second half, Ballinteer turned it up a notch and great team work between Centre Back Dave McElligot and Full Forward Kevin Power ended with McElligot slotting past the goalkeeper to end the match as a contest. Ballinteer continued to slot a few points over the bar with the match ending 1-12 to 0-07.

The Junior A’s travelled to Drimnagh on Sunday Morning also to take on Good Counsel and had a good 16 points to 12 victory over them.
