The 12s bowed out of the cup at Abbeyfeale on Saturday and so there will be no repeat of last years final appearance. Darragh Rankin-Hehir gave Ballingarry the perfect start with a goal in the opening minute. Abbey equalised before the break but with no more goals the game went to extra time where the home side ran out easy winners.
The youths left themselves just one point away from Division 1 glory with a 2-1 win at Broadford. Sean Lenihan and Shane Doherty form the spot gave Ballingarry a half time cushion but when United reduced the arrears to the minimum in the second it set up a nervy finish. Rathkeale are the only team that can draw level on points with Ballingarry at this stage but to do so they must win both their remaining games and hope Ballingarry lose their final game against NCW. Even then it will only force a playoff, an unlikely outcome.
On Sunday the junior A team left themselves just three points from the Division 1 title thanks to their 2-1 win against Athea United. Kevin Fordes brace secured the points.
Team: Kenrick, N. Cahill, Fitzgerald, C. Kiely, Condron, Corrigan, O’Grady, F. Kiely (D. Alymer), Moore (Doherty), R. Alymer (Moynihan), Forde.
Meanwhile the B team fell at Ferry Rangers where Joe Condron got Ballingarrys consolation.
