The game was played in very wet and windy conditions.
Warrenpoint got the better off the start by scoring two goals to lead half way through the first half.
Ballela opened their account with a goal from Ronan McCrory and followed by a point from Owen McGreevy.
Just on the stroke of halftime Owen McGreevy got a goal to leave Ballela winning by a point at half time.
Conor O’Hare in the Ballela goal was getting good distance on his puck outs and Paul McCusker, Shea Beattie and Cathal McClure were getting a lot tighter to their men in defence.
At the start of the second half Aidan McAleenan come on for Shea Beattie and Michael Heaney moved to defence with Owen McGreevy and Cathal McClure in midfield.
Ballela started the second half the stronger with Michael McGreevy and Niall McAleenan going close to scoring.
Then Ballela hit a goal scoring blitz with Owen McGreevy from out the field, and a great strike from Michael Heaney and two from Cathal McClure.
Shea Beattie returned to the field for the last five minutes. The last score of the game was another goal for Cathal McClure. The final score was Warrenpoint 2.00 Ballela 7.01.
