Westport turn on the style:Westport 5-21, Ballina 3-5

If the scoring prowess of their hugely talented under-14 panel is anything to go by, the future of Westport football is in good hands. Saturday’s division 1 league decider at McHale Park, Castlebar turned out to be a very one-sided affair after a hugely impressive display from the young men in navy and blue. All of Westport front eight got on the score-sheet, with the full forward line proving particularly prolific. David Groden top-scored with 1-5, Stephen Loftus weaved his way to 2-1, centre forward Mark Moran landed   1-4, and Cian McAllister crowned a fine display with 1-1. Pat Lambert chipped in with five points for good measure. It was awesome stuff against a Ballina side that refused to wilt and battled bravely as Sean Tracey, Aaron Winters and Daniel Zagata all scored goals. But they trailed by 4-8 to 1-4 at half time and never did enough to stem the tide. It was a hugely impressive Westport display and Captain Mark Moran collected the shield at the end, to the delight of jubilant Westport support that must already be looking forward to more success in the future.
