U12 Boys Division 2 – Breska Rovers 1 Ballingarry 3 (O’Connor, McMahon, Kelliher)
The clubs 12s completed their league season undefeated with a 3-1 win in their final league match of the season away to Breska. In perfect conditions this was a good competitive skilful game. Ballingarrys lads wanted to keep their unbeaten league record and Breska were eager for a good result to finish their campaign. The first half was an even contest with few chances but very competitive with Jamie Forde’s exciting drive and shot and Sean Duffy’s defending the highlights but it remained 0-0 at halftime.

Ballingarry were positive from the start of the 2nd half with good passing and movement all over the field. An excellent free kick from Declan Walsh wasn’t cleared by the Breska defence and the ball fell nicely to Cathal McMahon who shot to the bottom corner of the net. Five minutes later Breska were level with a good goal from a long ball. After the equaliser Breska were on top and pressed hard and had four opportunities but Sam Faughnan was excellent in goal to keep the visitors level. It was an end to end game at this stage and a hard working Ronan O’Connor put Ballingarry ahead with a good run and a fine finish. 2-1 to Ballingarry.

Again Breska pressed hard and again Sam was equal to their efforts and it was his clever long ball to set Billy Kelliher free from the halfway line with two defenders chasing and the goalie to beat he scored our third to wrap up the game after another determined performance. Well done to all and especially to younger players Sam, Declan, Ronan, Jamie and Sean who were excellent.

A massive game in the relegation battle went the way of the visitors. Ballingarry gave a tremendous second half performance to recover from a 2-0 half time deficit. Goals from Marcus Moore and Bradley Daly had them on track for a share of the spoils but a last minute goal from a free gave Killeaney all three points.
Team: Kenrick, C Kiely, O’Grady, Fitzgerald, N Cahill, Clancy, Smith, Moore, Daly, Forde, Ryan.
