BALLA Secondary School have captured the Connacht Colleges GAA First Years title.

They defeated St Bridget's, Loughrea, in today's final at Corofin by 2-9 to 2-3.

A very balanced Balla team had a shaky start when Loughrea got a goal in the opening minutes.

The central Mayo side missed a number of scoring opportunities until Josh Mahon got the first score, a fine goal.

Balla continued to battle hard, getting another Mahon goal prior to half time to give them a narrow lead of 2-1 to Loughrea's 1-2.

Balla dominated the second half and showed some lovely displays of football throughout.

Balla scorers: Josh Mahon (2-4) Aidan McHale (0-4) and Shane Nally (0-1).
