Munster Junior Cup Round 4 – Ballingarry 2 (F Kiely, Ryan) Vee Rovers 1 (STDL)
Ballingarry progressed to the fifth round of the Munster Junior cup and a home tie against Cork AUL side Glenthorn Celtic next month. Francis Kiely seemed to have set Ballingarry up for an easy passage when he put the home side ahead after just three minutes but the visitors came more and more into the game and could have been awarded a penalty midway through the half for a hand ball. Fitzgerald also cleared off the line before the break.
Ballingarry doubled their lead just one minute into the second half when Peter Ryan arrived late into the box to score his first goal for the club at the far post. Ballingarry hit the post from a corner twenty minutes from time through Richard O’Kelly before Vee game themselves a lifeline ten minutes from time with a good finish from a tight angle. Ballingarry held out for a well-deserved win against opponents from Tipperary South, a first ever meeting from a club from that league.
