Anyone make it to Ballycastle yesterday?

Were St Johns that good or were Ballycaslte that bad? Worrying result for the Town men.

was down at it myself, was a poor enough game to be fair. Very flat game and not much excitement in it for a neutral.

the goals killed ballycastle, all 5 of them came from mistakes in defence. the 3rd one was criminal as they had just scored a penalty and then conceded it straight away all from a mistake allowing a ball to get that far into the box.

I expected St Johns to win but not by that much.

tbf i was surprised at the result as St Johns have been playing very well at home this past few games so to get any result there is one worth taking.
 as NAH says the draw against Cdall recently would sum where both teams are.

no complaints about the ref at all last night. tough game and both physical teams not holding back and hard to see everything going on.

Poor enough performance from both sides shooting a lot of wides, esp at frees. Draw was prob a fair result at the end up.

I don't think Dunloys facilities have anything to do with it. They happened to have a lot of very talented players and excellent coaches. If the players don't have the natural talent and the coaches aren't up to scratch it wouldn't matter if they trained in an Olympic village.

agree with this. The facility is wonderful and it gives us, and other clubs, the ability to train all year around. But its the coaches and the natural talent that gets them to that level in all 3 codes.

its a mixture of the academy, good coaches at underage level and luck as well that they have all developed along so well. A building wont make kids play well and develop them into senior hurlers, footballers and camogiers, its the coaches they have and the parents who invest all the time into them.

I was well impressed with the U16 final as a neutral. Loughgiel to their credit gave it everything considering that was their 3rd match that week and could of won it but for some seriously good defending by Cushendall. Didnt get to see all of it as i was on the second pitch with the girls but what i seen it was a great game for a neutral.

i seen this last night on twitter.

fair play to both camps for taking a joint stand on this. Its probably too late to do anything about it as this should of been highlighted at the start of the season but its good to see both camps standing together on this.

Total farce that the CR winners have to win another game to get into the JMcD cup

i think too many people are concentrating on the negatives rather than taking the positives and building on them.

a few years ago we would of been tanked by Galway, Dublin etc in the league. Now we are moaning about narrow defeats to teams like this? to be honest i think we have made good progress in the league and the Joe McDonagh Cup. yes we had 3 disappointing defeats but the teams we lost to would of been disappointed to lose to us as well!

thats the flip side to this. we are not in a position to be assuming that losing to teams the same level as ourselves is a low or a failure of some sort.

off the pitch SV has now got antrim into a good financial state and they are bringing in money and investment to the background, on the pitch it will take the same time to get it right as well. its time to show a bit of faith in people who want the job and have a passion for the county rather than just look for a scapegoat each time it doesn't work.

Ourselves and Rossa played last night in the league. Finished 1-19 to 0-13 to ourselves and it was a good entertaining game. Rossa were up at half time and well worth their lead in the game as well but our lads dug in the second half to get the win.

Disappointed to have lost to Dunloy. Thought we were the better team for much of the game. You'd have to question the free count. Dunloy got 14 scorable frees, we got 5. We gave away 3 points from short passing errors and Dunloy had 4 frees moved forward 10 yards and scored them all. Never the less pleased with the display of a lot of our players. Dunloy now very much favorites for the championship having beaten ourselves and loughgiel.

Def, ive my months wages on us now at 4/1 which is behind yourselves and Lgiel in the betting lol

Was a decent game and nice to come to Cdall and win a game. Its been a while since we have won on your ground so its good to get a win at a tough venue.

Fair play to lads playing two games in a row as well on Sat and Sunday

They played a North Antrim hurling match v Carey on Saturday

This isn't All-county though. In South Antrim, these types of games are played by reserve teams.  To be fair, I understand your point that as a dual club, you are punished for being active and organised but I would have to disagree with using a North Antrim game as an argument against it.

Its not is true but the same lads play football as well which badly hampers a dual club. were already without the 3 county hurlers for the football games which again doesn't help but thats the joys of being a dual club.

Its a feast or famine which is the sad thing when it comes to games.

was at our game yday v st bridget's and it was horrible to watch. its most def at times like this you have to wonder who plans the games for clubs and what their logic is. They played a North Antrim hurling match v Carey on Saturday, the football on Sunday and then tonight they have the reserve hurling championship. thats 3 games in 3 days for some of them.

It made ydays game a farce and a waste of time for st bridget's travelling down from Belfast. Its deeply frustrating for any management to be put in the position where your asking fellas to play 3 days in a row.
