U12 Boys Division 1 – Ballingarry A 2 (Walsh, Forde) Broadford Utd A 2
On a very cold Saturday morning on 6th December, Ballingarry U12 A team played hosts at the Paddocks to Broadford A. Ballingarry got off to a fantastic start with Declan Walsh scoring on 5 minutes following a string of passing play within the oppositions half. Ballingarry continued to play confident attractive football, playing passes across and out from the back led by captain Ronan O’Connor into midfield. This pressure was rewarded through a deserved penalty decision following a handball in the Broadford box which was converted on 15 minutes by striker Jamie Forde. Broadford were a different side in the second half and controlled most of the remaining 30 minutes. Broadford scored two goals from corners to draw level with 10 minutes remaining. Ballingarry Keeper Ami Yadov was in exceptional form and made some crucial saves in the last quarter. Both sides had chances to clinch three valuable points, but a draw in the end was a fair result.
Man of the Match for Ballingarry was right full Cillian McMahon who gave us an attacking option, delivering passes with precision and making some vital tackles in the closing minutes. Well done to all the team, who continue to learn and improve with each game!
