All County Hurling League Division 1A
Ruairi Og 4-18 Ballinascreen 1-6
Table toppers Cushendall extended their unbeaten run in the All County Minor Hurling League when they accounted for visitors Ballinascreen in decisive fashion at Pairc Mhuire on Friday evening
Leading by 2-10 to 0-2 at half time thanks to goals from John McAlister on seven minutes and Ed McQuillan on twenty the game was all but won. McQuillan also added five points during that period as he led the Ballinascreen defence a merry dance.
After the break the Derry boys performed a bit better and though Cushendall did add two more major scores through McQuillan and Eoin McAlister the boys from Screen found the net themselves through left half back Emmet Dougan. Dougan (who scored 1-2 of his team’s total) was one of a number of the Ballinascreen players who really caught the eye as was corner forward Caolite McAlinden who showed he could hurl in any company.
