posted 7 May 2015, 02:50 by PRO St Pats,Tullow,Carlow

The fourth round of the Div 5 league took place on Wednesday 22nd April for St Patricks at home to Ballon. Bro Leo Park was a maze of activity once again with the walking track and underage teams creating a buzz around this match along with the sunny weather! St Pats had to brighter first half leading by 1-3 to 0-4 at the interval with the goal coming from Ben Hade.

Ballon scored ten points in the second half with 5 of them coming in the last four minutes. Willie Nolan scored a cracker of a goal with ten minutes remaining and Pats looked like they would win the encounter when leading by 4 with four minutes remaining. However, a lack of concentration, and perhaps fitness, by the home team coupled with some clinical finishing by the village men saw victory snatched from Pats. Best for Pats on the night included Willies Nolan and O’Brien, Anto Moran and Paul Shepard.

St Pats Junior Cs have now played four games with only one victory(against Pal), they will need to get wins from many of their remaining games to have a chance of making the league semis.
