Two of four scheduled Lough Derg FC (Ballina/Killaloe) league games went ahead last Saturday 28 January, 2012 and both were away.
The u11s travelled to Ballymackey and came out on the wrong end of a 1-4 loss. Having been 0-2 down at halftime, and really never having come to grips at all with the game in the first half, the Lough Derg team came out, after the team talk, a bit more clued-in to the game than the first 25 minute display.
The Lough Derg midfield comprising of Cian 0 Neill, Cameron McCauley and Michael Gough began to get to grips with their opposition and put some nice moves together going forward as a unit. Perhaps, if they and indeed the entire Lakers team, had started as brightly then the visitors might have gotten something from the game. That said however, a great team ‘’battling together’’ ethic is being fostered by the coaches and is beginging to pay dividends and is to be commended.
