The girls got their season off to a flyer with a hard fought home win against Broadford United.

Sarah Frawley gave Ballingarry the lead with a fine individual goal early in the second half, before the hard working Emma McNamara scored the third to close out the game. Kelsey Quinn was solid in goals with all 16 layers getting a run and all playing their part during a performance that left the coaching staff feeling proud and looking forward to the season ahead.

Premier Division – Rathkeale 8 Ballingarry 1 (Daly)
It was one of those days that every club has to endure and that every club recovers from. The 2-0 half-time scoreline offered little hint of the second half mauling that was to follow with Bradley Dalys goal nothing more than a consolation.
Team: Kenrick, Condron, O’Kelly (E Cahill), Fitzgerald, C Kiely (Danvers), Clancy, F Kiely, Moore, Smith, Daly (Corrigan), O’Grady.
Division 2 – Glin Rovers B 3 Ballingarry B 1 (Fitzgerald 1)
Barry Fitzgeralds goal wasn’t enough as the B side returned from Glin empty handed.
Premier Division – Ballingarry 0 Broadford United 2
Ballingarry started their season in disappointing fashion losing at home to Broadford United 2-0. The goals were scored in either half, the first from the spot after just 16 minutes and the second a beautiful half volley from the edge of the box ten minutes into the second half. Ballingarry can have few complaints as the visitors bossed long stretches of the duel. Ballingarry did have a half chance just before the games opener when Rankin-Hehir just failed to reach an inviting cross form the left but from here on it proved a difficult game for the home side.
Team: Kenrick, Condron, O’Kelly, Fitzgerald, Cahill, Moore, F Kiely, Clancy, Daly, Rankin-Hehir, Darragh O’Grady.
Used Subs: Danvers, Grimes, C Kiely.
