Under 13 Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 2 (Hayes, Mulqueen) Granagh United 3
Sunday April 21st
Desmond Cup Round 3 – Ballingarry 6 (Forde 2, Kelly 2, F. Kiely, OG) Abbeyfeale United 2
On Sunday Ballingarry eased into the last eight of the Cup and a trip to St.Itas thanks to this comprehensive defeat of Abbeyfeales second string outfit. The original fixture had to be abandoned due to an injury to an Abbey player and one assumes that any chance they had of progression disappeared on that day. Francis Kiely opened the scoring with a magnificent goal after ten minutes. Kevin Forde got the first of his two before the visitors pulled one back. An unfortunate own goal from Dohertys cross gave Ballingarry a 3-1 half time lead.
Ballingarry coasted in the second half with further goals from Denis Kelly (2), and another from Forde. United added a second and missed a penalty before the finish.
Team: Kenrick; Clancy; Doherty; Fitzgerald; Healy; F Kiely; C Kiely; O’Grady; Forde; Alymer; Kelly.
On Saturday goals from Mark Hayes and Bryan Mulqueen weren’t enough as Ballingarry went out of the under 13 cup at the hands of fierce rivals Granagh United.
