Results Week ending April 7th 2019 – Ladies just one point from title

Tuesday April 2nd

U14 Division 2 – Broadford 2 Ballingarry 2 (Mullane, Kelliher)
Well done to the lads last night on their performance on a bitter cold evening in Broadford.

Following a good start Ballingarry took the lead after 10 minutes with a fantastic individual goal from Billy Kelliher beating the keeper with a great shot into the top corner of the net. It remained 1 nil to half time even though the visitors created some good chances and were unlucky not to score. 

In the second half Broadford were more competitive and were rewarded with a deserved equaliser shortly after the break. It was a very close hard fought game from there on until Cathal McMahon hit the post and Jack Mullane finished the rebound to the net to make it 2.1 with 10 minutes left to play. Unfortunately a dubious refereeing decision with time almost up led to their equaliser and deprived Ballingarry of the win. 

A good all round performance with a special mention to Ballingarrys subs for waiting patiently on the side line in the bitter cold for their chance to play.

Sunday April 7th

Premier Division – Ballingarry 2 (A O’Connor, Singh) Rathkeale 3
A stirring second half performance that saw Ballingarry cancel out a 2-0 half time deficit wasn’t enough as Rathkeale found a third late on to secure the points. Aaron O’Connor and a first junior goal for Dylan Singh had seen Ballingarry look good for a point until that late strike.
