Mitchels upped the pace in the second half but missed a couple of good goal chances. Points by Shane Queenan, Tony Sweeney & Art O'Suilleabhain were matched by Ballinasloe who ran out deserving winners in the end

U14 Suck Valley League
Ballinasloe: 1-6 - Castlebar Mitchels: 0-1
Mitchels U14s suffered their second defeat in this year's league, going down by 8 points to Ballinasloe. In a competitive first half, the Castlebar boys had plenty of the possession, but couldn't convert their chances into scores. They trailed at the break by a single point.
The home side added 1-5 without reply after the break. Nevertheless, this was a much improved performance by Castlebar and, missing some big players, gives hope for the year ahead. Tackling and hassling improved, while work needs to be done on lifting and striking.
Best for Castlebar were Ronan Byrne, Shane Nugent and Conor Murphy.
Castlebar : M Parsons, C Murphy, S Nugent, B Crowley, S King, C McManamon, K Feeney, G Dunne, R Byrne, O Ralph, C Scahill (0-1), J Gallagher, C Gallagher, A Abbasi, E Mulkerrin, M Browne.
