A Team Survive

Friday May 13th
Premier Division – Ballingarry 2 (Kiely pen, Fitzgerald) Glin Rovers 2

At one point it appeared that relegation was a certainty having experienced one of the worst starts to a season in memory, but a string of results towards the end of the season, the latest a 2-2 draw with Glin Rovers on Friday, saw them finally secure their Premier status with a couple of games to spare. Six wins, one draw and one loss from the last eight games did the business, the pity being if they had shown that kind of form at the start of the season they could well have been in the shakeup at the finish. As it stands survival and a cup final appearance will keep all happy.

The game Friday saw Ballingarry go two goals up through a penalty from Francis Kiely and a powerful header from Brian Fitzgerald. However the visiting Desmond cup finalists showed tremendous fighting spirit to draw level with a stunning free kick to share the spoils.
Team: Kenrick, Healy, R O’Kelly, Fitzgerald, Corrigan, N Clancy, Kiely, O’Grady, Daly, D Clancy, Forde.
