Ballingarrys under 14 side made a little bit of club history as the lifted the cup for the first time at Clounreask on Sunday last with a well deserved 5-2 victory against division 1 champions Killeaney. Captain Alan Murphy gave Ballingarry the lead after just five minutes when he drove a long range free all the way to the net.

Killeaney equalised from a fine header before hat-trick hero Aaron Smith gave Ballingarry the lead again just before the break. The second half was just seconds old when Smith again sent Ballingarry 3-1 up with a tap in following great work from Killian Begley. Killeaney wouldn’t lie down and reduced the arrears again with a fine effort from an acute angle. Smith made it 4-2 when he rounded off the best move of the game before man of the match Alan Murphy scored a glorious fifth following a magnificent solo run from his own half.

The junior season ground to a half with a 2-3 home loss to NCW on Sunday, a result that sees NCW clinch second place above Ballingarry. Francis Kiely got both Ballingarry goals which were his 50th and 51st goals for the club.

The under 15s will try to emulate the 14s when they contest their first ever 15s cup final against NCW next Tuesday evening May 29th at Clounreask. It promises to be a cracker as both teams have an array of talent on show.
