Despite a good opening to the game with points from Alan Rainey and Chris Gallagher to take an early lead our challenge tamely petered out in this Junior B Hurling Championship clash at Whitehill. Ballymena got their act together, and got the scoreboard ticking over at an alarming rate. At half time the game was as good as over despite further points from Canice Mooney 0-3, Colm McKee and Gearoid Cosgrove but on the night we did not appear to have any answers to the Ballymena onslaught as we trailed 3-10 to 0-7 at the break.
Ballymena took control from the restart and we never got into any rhythm or had the opportunity to make any impression on the score as they ran out convincing winners 6-13 to 0-13. Second half scores came from Chris Gallagher 0-2, Canice Mooney 0-2 and Colm McKee 0-2.
