Connacht Cup Semi Final
Castlebar Celtic held a 2-0 lead over Ballinasloe Town at half-time in Celtic Park earlier today but unfortunately for Stevie Gavin’s side the game never resumed as it had to be abandoned due to the torrential rain that fell in the first half. The Sligo officials had little choice but to come to that decision as it was clear that game was becoming dangerous due to the heavy rain. Mark Howley had given his side the lead on twenty-five minutes and a Jordan Loftus penalty before half-time had Celtic in control but in the end, it did not matter and the game will now be replayed on Sunday next at 2pm in Castlebar.
U21 Division Two
Ballina Town’s first appearance in the U21 league ended in defeat as a hat trick from Mark Maloney earned Claremorris a 3-1 win in Belleek. The opening goal arrived just before half-time as Maloney got his side’s first goal of the day and he made it two on fifty three minutes to put his side further in-front. Maloney completed his hat-trick on seventy-one minutes and even though Ballina pulled a goal back six minutes later it was Darragh Kennedy’s side that took all three points on the opening day.
Ballinrobe Town kick started their U21 season with a 5-0 win over a good Swinford side in James McEvaddy Park. New signing Danny O’Toole was the star of the show as he hit a hat-trick for Pat O’Sullivan’s side with the other goals coming from Garry Mellett and Shane Flannery.
Conn Rangers B caused a minor upset on Sunday morning as they earned a 2-1 win over Glenhest Rovers in Beltra. Goals from Sam Thornton and Kevin Breslin in the first half proved to be enough for Rangers who held on thanks to an inspired display from keeper James Hughes despite Glenhest pulling a goal back in the final five minutes
McDonnell Construction League Two
Ballyvary Blue Bombers were in fine goalscoring form on Sunday morning as they out eight past Crossmolina B in Keelogues.

Ciaran Traynor and a first ever senior goal from Matthew Williams did brighten up the day somewhat for the away side.
