Ballyvarley lose narrowly to visiting Kilclief in Junior Hurling Championship clash, Ballyvarley 1-9 Kilclief 3-9.

Back in the day we used to refer to our games with Kilclief as Battles and after watching this latest very competitive rough and tumble clash, I must conclude that little has changed over the years. 

The Reds began the game brightly, dominating the first half but trailed by 0-5 to 1-5 at the interval with Matthew Malone providing the only scoring threat with all five points. A rather soft Kilclief goal gave them the advantage for much of the game. 

HALF TIME Ballyvarley 0-5 KILCLIEF 1-5.

Second half points from Matthew Malone and young Thomas Lennon and a goal from Johnny Lennon left only two points between the sides and it was game on again, but two spectacular goals from the visitors proved decisive.
