Ballina lead the way for Mayo clubs
Ballina currently lead the way for the Mayo clubs in the Connacht Junior League following three rounds of Division 1A. The north Mayo men picked up their second win of the season last weekend thanks to a bonus point win over Tuam at home. It was just what Ballina were looking for after going down in the previous round to second place Monivea. The Creggs Road side crossed the line with tries from Robert Forbes, Conor Forde, Paul Neary, and David Newman to wrap up a 29-3 win. This weekend the Ballina men will make the short trip to Cloondeash to take on a winless Castlebar side in round four of the competition. Last weekend the county town side went down to a 22-7 defeat at the hands of Corinthians, and despite leading by 7-5 at the break, thanks to a David Staunton try which was converted by Ronan Conway, they weren’t able to hold on to the lead and were steamrolled in the second half, with Corinthians hitting two tries. Castlebar haven’t had a good start to the season and will be looking for a much improved performance on Sunday against Ballina.

Ballina stay at the top of Mayo pack following derby win
Ballina kept their place at the top of the Mayo clubs in the Connacht Junior League with another win at the weekend. The Creggs Road club picked up their third win from three games this season with a hard fought win over Castlebar. The 12-5 win over Castlebar was played in Cloondeash. Castlebar, who are currently winless this season, would have hoped they could have seen off the side whom they beat in the Cawley Cup final last year, but they came up short. The homeside did get the first try of the game through Fintan Casey in the first half, but the north Mayo men got their own touch down just before the break when Michael Clarke touched down. There was little separating the sides until Stephen McCarron got in for a try that was converted by Andy Moynihan. That scored condemned Castlebar to their fourth loss on the bounce, but the county town side have managed to pick up three losing bonus points so far this season, so a win should be on the horizon for them in the near future. This weekend they will get their chance to pick up a win again, but this one looks like a long shot for them. They have to make the trek to second in the table Monivea, who have four out of four wins so far this season and only trail leaders Sligo by one bonus point. Last weekend the Monivea boys saw off bottom of the table Tuam by 34-0 away from home. Ballina will look to pick up their fourth win of the campaign when they entertain Galwegians at home, Wegians come into the game with one win from three and weren’t in action last weekend, so Ballina should feel confident of taking the points on Sunday, but will probably come up short of getting a bonus point win.
