Results Week Ending October 16th 2016

It was National cup all the way over the weekend as four teams from the club were in action and with the exception of the U12s the other three got through.

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.

U14 Boys National Cup – Avenue Utd 1 Ballingarry 2 (M Molloy 2)

Sunday October 9th

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.

This was a fine performance from the girls as they gave another display of passing football that left the opposition full of praise. Unfortunately the win their play deserves still evades them but with their style of play that will surely change.
