F.A.I. Youth Cup Round 1 – NCW 4 Ballingarry 4 aet (S. Doherty 2, Alymer 2) NCW Win 3-1 on pens.

The under 10 side recorded a 3-1 win at home to stay right on course for the title. Goals from Mark Storin and Mikey Hickey plus an own goal saw Ballingarry ease through. The under 14 side had no such luck as they lost their second successive game of the season at Askeaton. Ballingarrys scorers were David Lynch and Mark O’ Callaghan. The 4-2 loss leaves them still looking for their first points of the new season.

Meanwhile the youths bowed out of the FAI youth cup at the first time of asking at Newcastlewest in what was an absorbing contest. Ballingarry were 3-1 up at the break thanks to Darren Alymer and Shane Doherty but somehow left it slip in the second period with NCW two strikes sending the game to extra time. Even then Ballingarry regained the lead only to concede a fourth minutes from the final whistle in extra time. Sadly from a Ballingarry point of view they could only convert one of their penalties through Darren Alymer and went out 3-1 on penalties.
