North Connaught Hurling Champions!!


Congratulations to Mr Woolleyโ€™s Senior Boys Hurling side who once again claimed the North Connaught Hurling Senior A title. Following on from our victory over Sligo in the semi-final we faced old rivals Rice College, Westport, in the final today at the C.O.E in Bekan. This was the third consecutive final meeting between the two sides and the Ballyhaunis lads were keen to make up for recent defeats. Ryan Keadin goaled early for the BCS ladsย and further points from Oisin Greally, Liam Lavin and Conal Hession settled the early nerves in what was a fiesty affair in cold conditions. Solid defending from Danny Hill and Eoin Ryan, in particular, kept Westport at bay and the Ballyhaunis lads led by 5 points at halftime. A brace of goals by Keadin in the second half settled the tie and although the match remained competitive throughout the Ballyhaunis lads ran out deserved winners. The final scoreline read BCS 5:11 – 3:04 Westport. Ballyhaunis CS are back on top in Mayo again!!! Well done to all involved.
