Callan CBS vs Ballyhale 2/2/2016

The second round of the Juvenile League was hosted in the grounds of Callan Cbs where they welcomed near rivals Ballyhale. On a wet and cold day in near un-playable conditions both teams went at each other from the start and it was evident there was a great desire for victory from both sides. Ballyhale opted to play with a third man at times in the middle third in an attempt to work the ball closer to goal and they applied a lot of pressure onto the Callan backs early in the first half. Jason O’Brien however who was excellent throughout kept his backs on their toes from the goal line and they withstood the early pressure from Ballyhale. Such were the conditions the teams were even at halftime on a scoreline 0-1 to 0-1 proving just how difficult it was to hurl on the day. Callan started the second half at a blistering pace with Mikey Wallace scoring two goals in the space of a couple of minutes, this lead was always going to prove difficult for Ballyhale to close with the poor conditions. Mid-way through the second half however they did manage to work a penalty. An excellently struck penalty by Ballyhale’s centre forward was stopped by O’Brien in the goal and quickly cleared away much to the delight of the Callan backs who were roaring on each other during the treacherous weather. The game finished on a scoreline of Callan CBS 2-4 Ballyhale 0-2. Callan CBS now await to play Grennan College in the next round of the league.

Well done to all the players who showed great commitment and dedication in such tough conditions.

In what could be described as a game of two halves Callan took the lead in the first half with the aid of a gale force wind. A series of points from Darragh Bergin, Scott lawlor and Craig Cahill  had Callan ahead at half time on a scoreline of 0-11 to 0-1.  Grennan started the second half the quickest by firing home a goal and a come back seemed to be on the cards. The Callan response however was excellent with Craig Cahill hitting the net after a long winding run  from midfield. Grennan College showed great heart and determination in the second half scoring three further goals and Callan had their work cut out maintaing the lead built up in the first half. Adrian McLawerence nullified the Grennan response by scoring two goals in quick succession from full forward. Additional points from man of the match Darragh Bergin pushed Callan over the finish line on a scoreline of Colaiste Eamann Ris 3-15 Grennan College 4-3.
