Limerick Desmond Youth Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 5 (O’Kelly 3, Quille, Hayes) Ferry Rangers 0
The only club game to survive the weekend weather saw Ballingarry progress to the last eight of the Desmond youth cup with a comfortable win against visiting Ferry Rangers. Two goals from Keith O’Kelly and a marvelous strike from Josh Quille had the home side 3 up at the break. Mark Hayes added a fourth in the second half with a delightful chip and O’Kelly completed his hat-trick when he broke through the Ferry defence and drilled past the advancing keeper. David Geary was unlucky not to score when he dribbled past three defenders only to see his effort come back off the post. Best on the day were O’Connor, Shanagher, Quille and O’Kelly.
Team: Molloy, S O’Connor, Storin, Quille, Mulqueen, Shanagher, Flynn, Southgate, O’Kelly, Hayes.
Used Subs: Tagney, Geary.
In the Munster youth cup Ballingarry will host Clonmel Town in the last 16 following their 10-0 win against Bansha on Saturday last.

Both Ladies cup draws were made last week and in both Ballingarry received byes in the first round. In the Premier cup they start their defence of the trophy in the semi-final while their defence of the Desmond cup begins at the quarter final stage.
