U12 Boys Cup – Broadford Utd A 3 Ballingarry A 1 (McMahon)
The under 12 boys had an early start this Saturday away to Broadford in the cup. A very entertaining first have saw the teams going in 0-0. Ballingarry started brightly in the second half and went one up thanks to a Jack McMahon goal. Broadford fought back and levelled against the run of play.

U14 Boys Cup – Ballingarry 0 Granagh 3 AET
U14 Girls Division 1 – Newcastle West Town 0 Ballingarry 6 (McNamara 2, Hayes 2, O’Dwyer 2, Kenny)
Ballingarry got back to winning ways following their defeat in Dublin last day out. This was another fine performance against a physically stronger team but Ballingarrys strength is their sheer footballing ability and this again shone through as they ran up another big score. Missing several starters made little difference as Ballingarry were three up by the break. Another three in the second half made it comfortable.
Youths Division 2 – Ballingarry 4 (Kelly 2, Hayes, Shanagher) Mountcollins 1
Ballingarrys Youths returned to league football and winning ways with a 4-1 victory at home to Mountcollins on Saturday. But even though having the lions share of possession in the first half Ballingarry found themselves down 0-1 at halftime. The visitor’s goal coming from a corner after a rare excursion into the Ballingarry half. The bumpy pitch and strong wind made it difficult to sting passes together but to their credit Shanagher and Quille in the middle of the pitch never resorted to long ball and were determined to try to keep possession when others struggled to do so.
Ballingarrys possession increased even more in the second half and they were rewarded 10 minutes in when Kelly got his first of the day brought about by his own determination dispossessing the Mountcollins defender and firing home his shot from 20 yards. It was Kelly again 10 minutes later scoring his 7th of the season finishing from close range from a Hayes cross from the bye line. Shanaghers 30 yard wind assisted free kick sailed in over the keeper made the points safe on 69 minutes. And Hayes capped off a very good 2nd half performance by scoring his 11th youth goal of the season with a close range strike.
Team: Molloy, Long (capt,) O’Connor, Flynn, Tagney, Shanagher, Quille, Southgate, Mulqueen, Hayes, Kelly. Subs used: Storan, Meade, Fitzgerald and Geary.
