Ballingarry draw 1-1 in Desmond Cup Final

Friday May 25th 2007
Ballingarry and NCW Rovers drew an exciting cup final in front of a big crowd on Friday last. Rovers started the better with O’ Grady the busier keeper but it was Ballingarry that went the closest when Kennedy brought a good save fron the keeper. The Premier side went ahead eleven minutes into the second half when Clancy put Kelly in with a fine through ball for the Ballingarry striker to finish well in the corner.

NCW were back on terms midway through the half when O’ Grady fouled Joyce in the box and then Joyce himself took the spot kick that restored parity. End-to-end stuff from there to the finish failed to produce a winner and now both sides will meet again on Friday next June 1st, when the cup will be decided either way.

Team: J. O’ Grady, M. Corrigan, Darragh O’ Grady, C. Kiely, A. Barrett, Clancy, N. Condron, J. Scanlon, F. Kiely (N. Cahill), D. Kelly, E. Kennedy.
