Premier Division – Ballingarry 3 (Clancy, Kiely, D. O’Kelly) Killeaney 2
Division 3 – Shannonside B 7 Ballingarry B 1 (Rankin–Hehir)
Ballingarry recorded their first Premier win of the season winning by the odd goal in five against visiting Killeaney. The foundations of their win were laid in the opening ten minutes when Dean Clancy and Francis Kiely hit a goal each. Denis Kelly added a third before Killeaney were given a golden opportunity to reduce the deficit before the break. Pa Healy conceded a penalty and collected his second yellow but the spot kick struck the post and was cleared. The half also saw the visitors hit the crossbar and Kenrick make a number of outstanding saves.
Killeaney upped the tempo in the second half as Ballingarry opted to hold what they had. A second penalty saw Killeaney find the net after Doherty handled in the box and a late second for the visitors saw Ballingarry endure a nervy finish. Richard O’Kelly did hit the crossbar near the end.
Team: Kenrick; Doherty; Condron; Fitzgerald; Healy; O Grady; Clancy; J O Kelly (Alymer); R O Kelly; D O Kelly; Kiely
The B team were at Shannonside where Daire Rankin-Hehirs first goal for the club proved a consolation as the hoimeside were easy winners. It also proved a forgettable day for the three debutants on the day William Reidy, Aaron Smith and Anthony McDonagh.
