Under 16 Girls National Cup Round 1 – Cashel Town 1 Ballingarry 7 (Mulcaire 5, Shanaher, O’Shaughnessy)
As the scoreline suggests Ballingarry were far superior to the hosts. Ballingarry raced into a 4-0 half time lead that rendered the second half academic. Star of the show was surely Phoenix Mulcaire who netted 5 times for the winners.

U10 Girls Group 1 – Kildimo Utd v Ballingarry off
U12 Boys Cup Round 1 – AK Utd A 7 Ballingarry 0

The early kick off in Kilcornan away to AK on a rain sodden pitch saw the lads suffer their worst ever defeat. The stronger opposition taking full advantage of their opportunities had a fully deserved 3-0 lead at the break. Ballingarry rallied in the second half but couldn’t get the score to close the gap and were caught on the break for the rest of the goals as they pressed for a lifeline. The score line doesn’t do justice to the efforts of the Ballingarry lads. There is little doubt they’ll be back to their best again for the next match.

U14 Girls National Cup Round 1 – Killenaule Moyglass 2 Ballingarry 4 (McNamara, Hayes, Mullane, O’Callaghan pen)
Munster Junior Cup Round 2 – Ballingarry 1 (Alymer) Athea United 0

A goal 10 minutes from time saw Ballingarry through to the third round of the Munster Junior and a home game against Broadford United in round 3. A poor first half was followed by a much better second period where two stunning saves from Kenrick kept the visitors at bay. The crossbar also came to Ballingarrys rescue before a fine save from Uniteds keeper kept out a certain goal for Aaron Smith. This was all before Rory Alymers superbly placed effort sent Ballingarry through.
Team: Kenrick, Rankin-Hehir (O Connor), Danvers, Fitzgerald, O’Grady, Ryan, Moore, Daly, Alymer, Smith, N Cahill.

Ladies Premier Division – Rathkeale 0 Ballingarry 1 (Gohery)

Ballingarry ladies were away to league title contenders Rathkeale and it became evident from the off that it was going to be a close high tempo affair. An evenly contested first half saw few chances for either side. This though, did not take from the pulsating nature of the game. After the break, play continued in a similar vein where in the 30th minute Claire Gohery recieved a well measured pass near the side line, and with a precision strike the ball beat the Rathkeale keepers reach and flew in over her head to the net. Rathkeale fought tooth and nail to get back on level terms but Ballingarry held on for the win.
Team: Murphy, Lee, O’Connell, Crotty, E. Hickey, Carroll, White, Shire, F. Hickey, O’Gorman, Gohery
Subs: Mulcaire, Mee, O’Keeffe, Harnett, Tangney

Ladies Premier – Mungret Regional 1 Ballingarry 10 (Anderson 3, O’Gorman 4, Mee 2, E Hickey)

Sunday afternoon saw Ballingarry ladies travel away to Mungret. It was clear from early in the game that Ballingarry would be the dominant team but yet it was Mungret that took the early lead against the run of play. Ballingarry quickly settled back in to their traditional passing game and this duely paid dividends as Stephanie Anderson opened the scoring for Ballingarry. Joanne O’Gorman followed suit with another and following a defensive error by the home side Anderson seized the opportunity firing to the back of the net. Another from O’Gorman saw Ballingarry 4-1 up at half time.

Two minutes into the second half Anderson, now on a roll, found sister Rachel with a fantastic through ball and leaving the keeper no chance, completed her hat trick. Three substitutes were introduced 7 minutes into the half, Gohery for White, Carroll for R. Anderson and Cathy Mee for S. Anderson. Joanne O’Gorman went on to help herself to a hat trick and debutant for Ballingarry Cathy Mee grabbed a brace. Try as Mungret may they just could not get on top of these Ballingarry ladies and the score line genuinely did not do Mungret justice as they produced some fine football at times but it was to be Ballingarrys day when O’Gorman, not content with her hat trick scored one more with Captain Emer Hickey sealing the deal with a fantastic score of her own.

Team: Lenihan, Lee, E.Hickey, Crotty, Mulcaire, R. Anderson, Shire, White, F.Hickey, O’Gorman, S.Anderson
Subs: Gohery, Carroll, Mee, Harnett, Keating, O’Keeffe, Tangney

U10 Girls Group 1 – AK Utd 0 Ballingarry 7
U12 Boys Division 2 – Ballingarry 0 Rathkeale 0

The U12s had another fantastic encounter with rivals Rathkeale on Saturday last. The game was full of great skill and effort from both teams all throughout with goal chances at both ends with Rathkeale just having the better of the first half with six shots on goal to Ballingarry’s two.

The second half served up more of the same. Great attacking play from both sides gave the supporters good value on a bitterly cold afternoon. Ballingarry had the edge in this half and came very close on a couple of occasions to breaking the deadlock. However Rathkeale were always dangerous on the counter attack and Sam Faughnan had to make an important save in the dying minutes to keep the score level.

Once again like the previous meeting both teams set out to play football and again it was a great game from start to finish. Well done to all the lads they played really well and to the subs for waiting patiently on the side line on this cold afternoon.

FAI Oscar Traynor Trophy Group C – LDFL 0 WCL 0
An entertaining scoreless draw was the outcome in this group game at Clounreask with Aaron Smith making his debut in the second half. Dean Clancy was an unused substitute.

U16 Girls National Cup Round 1 – Cashel Town v Ballingarry OFF
Premier Division – Broadford Utd 2 Ballingarry 0

Broadford United completed the double over Ballingarry with this 2-0 defeat at Cove Park on Sunday. An early goal for the winners set them up and in truth United could have been well up at the break having hit the post twice. A much improved performance form Ballingarry in the second half merited a point but with Ballingarry throwing everyone forward Broadford broke to seal victory with their second in the last minute.

Team: Kenrick, N Cahill, Daly, Fitzgerald, C Kiely, Moore, F Kiely, Ryan, Clancy (Rankin-Hehir), Danvers, E Cahill.

All Ireland U12 Girls Blitz Finals – Group C – Home Farm 2 Ballingarry 0; Monasterevin 0 Ballingarry 2 (O’Dwyer, Hayes); Parkvilla 2 Ballingarry 0; 9th/10th Place playoff – Wilton 2 Ballingarry 0

For the third season in succession Ballingarry qualified to represent the LDS/GL in the All Ireland U12 Girls Blitz Finals at Clonshaugh and finished a very creditable 10th overall. Of the four games they played they won one and lost three. After losing their first group game against Home Farm they played superbly in beating Monasterevin with goals in either half from Nicole O’Dwyer and Sarah Hayes. Against Parkvilla in their third game they were by far the better team but could not score from the many chances they created and eventually lost 2-0, a result that put them out of the competition.

Saturday October 8th

U10 Boys – Newcastle West Rovers A 2 Ballingarry 8
U12 Boys National Cup – Ballingarry 0 Lough Derg 4
The better team won on the day even if the score line was a little flattering. Ballingarry had their chances and it was against the run of play that the north Tipp lads opened the scoring midway through the first half. Once they added a second there was no way back for Ballingarry.

U14 Girls National Cup – Ballingarry 4 (McNamara 4) Askeaton 0

A superb performance from the girls saw them defeat visiting Askeaton. Ballingarry were always the better team and were well worth their half time 1-0 lead. The second half saw their fine passing play get the rewards it deserved with another three goals, all four coming from the boot of Nicole McNamara.

FAI Junior Cup Round 3 – Ballingarry 3 (Smith 2, Clancy) Shannon Olympic 3 AET (Ballingarry win 3-2 on pens)

Aaron Smith seemed to have sent Ballingarry through to the fourth round of the FAI as the game entered the final minute. Even a saved penalty from Francis Kiely seemed not to matter however debutant Sean Herlihys rash challenge in the box saw the referee point to the spot and the game was sent to extra time. Ballingarry were behind for only a few minutes before Smith pounced after Kenricks free was spilled. Smith gave Ballingarry the lead one minute after the re-start when O’Reillys perfectly weighted pass form the left was volleyed home. Clancy was fouled in the box and the spot kick was Ballingarrys insurance to round four, that was until the penalty was saved.

Then the last minute spot kick to the visitors and extra time. Two goals evenly shared in either half of extra time with Clancy giving Ballingarry the lead in the opening period saw penalties decide with Ballingarry proving the better by the odd successful spot kick in five in the shootout.
Team: Kenrick, Danvers (Moore), C Kiely, O’Grady, Clancy, Ryan, Kiely, Smith, O’Reilly (Herlihy), F Kiely, Cahill.
