Ballinrobe travelled to Balllina on Sunday for this top of the table clash, and they went home with a well-deserved victory. Colts with several regulars players missing, had a starting five of Simon Walshe, Martin Wynne, David Melia, Padraic Roche and Oisin Ginty. Ballina got off to a good start with several impressive baskets both inside and out from Martin Wynne. Robert Bowe pushed Ballinrobe into the lead 14-11 with good baskets . At the end of the first quarter Ballinrobe lead 22-16.
Ballina Colts started the second quarter with three pointers from Padraic Roche to level the scores 22-22. The two teams went basket for basket for the rest of the quarter, until Jamie Wall hit some good shoots to push Ballinrobe into the lead 44-32.

At the start of the second half Martin Wynne got some very good drives to the basket to keep Ballina in touch. At this stage Ballina were in trouble under the boards, and could not match Ballinrobes much stronger and taller presence. Maurice Horan and Robert Bowe got several scores inside to increase the lead to 58-43. At the end of the third quarter David Mc Dermot scored a big three pointer to leave the scores 63- 46.
At the start of the final quarter Jamie Wall pushed the lead to 26 points 74-48. David Melia started the Ballina comeback with a big three pointer. Ballina Colts went into a full court press and with great steals Colin Kennedy and Padraic Roche cut the lead to 65-76. Once again Roche and Wynne got good scores and the lead was cut to 5 points 75 - 80 with three minutes on the clock.
At this stage Ballina lost Padraic Roche with an injury and both David Melia and Oisin Ginty were fouled out. In the final minutes Ballinrobe got several easy baskets to finish winners by 98-75, with Ballina failing to score in this period. Best for Ballinrobe were Jamie Wall, Maurice Horan and Martin Mc Andrew. Ballina had good displays from Padraic Roche and Martin Wynne.
