On Friday the A team restored their three point lead at the top of division 1 with a 3-2 win under lights at Abbeyfeale. Ballingarry started slowly in freezing conditions and were too casual but still went 1 up through Darragh O’Grady from a shot from edge of the box following good work from Kennedy. Poor Ballingarry defending led to the homeside equalising before Forde restored Ballingarrys lead from a swift counter making the most of Dohertys fine pass. Abbeyfeale again restored parity from an own goal to leave the sides level at the break. Ballingarry were much better in the second half and went ahead for a third time when Denis Kelly scored after O’Gradys shot was spilled by the keeper. Ballingarry had chances to extend their lead before the end and never looked like giving up the lead thereafter.
Team: Pat Kenrick, N. Cahill (Moore), E. Cahill, C Kiely, C. Doherty, Kennedy, Condron, Darragh O’Grady (Trainor), Kelly, F. Kiely, Forde (Ryan)
Also on Friday the Desmond youths gave themselves a mountain to climb as they fell 3-0 at Turners Cross to the Cork AUL in the second round of the Inter league.
On Saturday the 12s made hard work of gaining all three points from visitors Adare United with a 3-1 win. Mikey Hickey got them off the mark with a well struck free before Adare restored parity to leave the half time score 1-1. Aaron Smith was fouled in the box early in the second half but when Hickeys penalty was saved Edward Houlihan was on hand to slot home the rebound. Smith got the third in the last five minutes.
The 8s were involved in a thriller at Shanagolden sharing 10 goals with Shannonside. A brace each from Michael Russell and Darragh Casey with another from Jack Molloy saw them share the points. Finally the 16s are still looking for their first win of the season following their 2-0 home defeat against NCW Rovers. The B team were in action on Sunday but went under 3-0 against Glin Rovers B.
