Sunday 10th October 2010
Junior Division 1 – Kilcolman Rovers 2 Ballingarry 4 (C. Doherty, Moore, Corrigan, Forde)
Hogan Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry B 1 (M. Condron) Feenagh 3
The A team team returned home from Kilcolman with all three points safely in the bag thanks to a 4-2 win. They went two up in the first half from two fine goals from Colin Doherty and Kevin Forde, the first the result of superb team work and the second a glorious finish from Forde. The home side pulled one back before the break when some sloppy defending from Ballingarrys defence allowed the opening. The second was barely in progress when Moore conceded a penalty which was converted but the Ballingarry defender made up for his error with a cracking left footed volley to restore Ballingarrys lead. Corrigans effort five minutes from time sealed the result at a period when Ballingarry were in total control.
Team: Kenrick, Moore, E. Cahill (Corrigan), C. Kiely, K. Condron, C. Doherty (Kennedy), O’Grady, F. Kiely, S. Doherty, R. Alymer, Forde (J. O’Grady).
The B team exited the Hogan Cup at the hands of neighbours Feenagh following a 1-3 defeat. The visitors raced into a 2-0 half time lead but captain Mike Condron, with his first goal of the season, reduced the deficit to the minimum. However a late goal from Feenagh put the issue beyound doubt.
On Saturday the youths progressed to the third round of the Munster Youth cup when Shane Dohertys first half strike proved decisive.
In other news the club are delighted to have four players returned to the panel for this seasons under 13 Kennedy cup, Nathan Clancy, Cathal O’Keeffe, Mikey Hickey and Mikey Morrissey were re selected on the panel following last seasons heroics with the under 12 interleague Munster champions and All Ireland finalists. Edward Houlihan remains on the under 12 squad for this seasons competition while in the youngest LDSL emerging talent squad, the under 11s, his brother Niall has been selected. It is always a great honour to represent your league in competition while it is always a honour for the club to be represented. Good luck to each of the boys.
All LDSL games were postponed this weekend as a mark of respect to the late Christy Lynch. Mr Lynch was a founder member of the LDSL which was formed in the early 1990s and was involved with NCW. The club wish to convey its condolences to his family and friends on their sad loss. May he rest in peace.
