You may have seen from the results tab, that Ballycran’s Senior hurling team have now progressed through to the final of the Down SHC Championship and once again meet Portaferry to set up a similar encounter as last September.

Stephen Keith’s remarkable save, seen on the Official Down GAA FB page, has been embedded into this news post and magnified slightly so that you can see ‘Viper’ stretch to block the shot.  Click on the four arrows to enlarge the playback screen.  If you want to see the original clip with audio, then see further down this news post.

Good luck to the players, management and all supporters on the day!

Official Down GAA original clip of Stephen Keith’s remarkable save.

Vipers penalty save

Leading by six points early in the second half Ballycran's Stephen Keith pulls off a stunning penalty save from Ballygalgets Gareth Johnson. It was the first of two second half saves that kept Ballycran on course for a defence of their title, with time almost up Keith made another spectacular save from Gerard Roddy to maintain their three point advantage and ensure that they will meet Portaferry in two weeks time in the County Senior Final.
