Westport 9-11 Ballina 2-12

Westport shot out the lights in an impressive display of team football against Ballina on Wed. evening last at St. Patricks Park.
The early stages saw both teams trading points, with Colm Moran Moran and Alan Kennedy finding their range and Ballina keeping in touch with a couple of points of their own. Ballina then kicked on with some long range points before  Westport  hit a sweet spot and  2 goals from Fionn Mc Donagh  and a goal  from Colm Moran, followed by points from Moran and Alan Kennedy left them going in at half time 3-7 to 0-8 up.
Ballina were quicker out of the blocks after half time and reduced the margin to 4 points with 2 quick goals before Westport kicked on again with Fionn Mc Donagh chipping in with a further 3- 2 , Alan Kennedy 3 points, Colm Moran 1-1,
Paul Lambert and Oisin Mc Laughlin a goal a each.
This was a game where team ethic won out over individual flair, where the man in the best position got the ball.
The win sends Westport into a Co. Semi final where they will play Mayo Gaels.
