FAI Junior Cup Round 2 – Listowel Celtic 4 Ballingarry 3 AET (Moore, Kennedy, F. Kiely)
On Saturday, the youths registered a significant result at home to Rathkeale with a win that maintains their 100% record and keeps them clear at the top of the tree. A goal down at the break it needed a stern talk at the break, a tactic that worked a treat as goals from Shane Doherty and Jeff Doherty saw Ballingarry complete the recovery.
In the under 12 division 1 Ballingarry recorded a 1-1 draw against NCW a result the sees them remain top. Mikey Hickeys long range free kick had Ballingarry ahead at the break but a penalty conceded by the same Ballingarry player had the visiters level, a score that also ensured a point for the visitors. Ballingarry could have won a tight game near the end when Jack Hartnett was unlucky form Aaron Smiths pass.
In the 8s Ballingarry were two up at Shauntrade only to succumb to four second half goals.
On Sunday, Ballingarry were just seconds away from a third round appearance in the FAI Junior Cup at Listowel until the home side sent the tie to extra time where they got the winner. Unlike the last round when Ballingarry conceded a last minute equalizer against Adare United there was to be no fairytale ending as they went out by the odd goal in seven. Marcus Moore gave them a 1 -0 half time lead which Eoin Kennedy doubled early in the second half. The Kerry lads reduced it to the minimum before Francis Kiely restored Ballingarrys 2 goal advantage only for the eventual winners to score two late goals, the last in the fourth minute of added time.
