Junior Division 3 – Ballingarry B 2 (Doyle, Barry Fitzgerald) Adare Utd B 0
Ballingarrys youth side travelled to Clonmel on Saturday where they bowed out of the Munster Youth Cup to 2004 winners Clonmel Celtic by the only goal scored six minutes into extra time by the home side. The game was as tight as the scoreline suggests with chances few and far between. David Condron was the busier of the keepers without ever having to be spectacular. The only goal of the game was scored by the Celtic centre half when a free conceded by Gerard O’Leary was delivered to the far post where the player headed home. It was the only highlight of a largely dull game played in poor weather conditions.
The 14s remain top of division 3 with a hard earned 2-1 win at home to Kilcornan. Sean Moran gave Ballingarry the lead early on but the visitors were level at the break thanks to a well struck goal from distance. Ballingarry were to regain the lead from the spot when Mikey Hickey converted following a hand ball by the Kilcornan defender. It was a lead that Ballingarry were to maintain to the end.
On Sunday the B team recorded just their second league win of the season with a 2-0 home success against Adare United B. Ballingarrys scorers were Kristian Doyle and Barry Fitzgerald.
