U16 Girls Division 1 – Ballingarry 6 (Shanaher 3, O’Doherty, Collum, Delee) Shannonside 0
Under 14 Division 1 – Ballingarry 1 (Quill) Broadford Utd 2
Under 11 Division 1 – Kilcolman Rovers 3 Ballingarry 5 (McMahon 2, Mullane, Parabat, Picard)
A poor start from Ballingarry saw them fall 3-0 behind after twenty minutes and it took until just before halftime for Ballingarry to get a lifeline when Dylan Picard scored with a lovely strike fromm distance. Five minutes into the second half Ballingarry got a second. After good work from Jack Mullane and Tim O’Donoghue the ball landed at the feet of Finlay Parabat and he dispatched the ball to the net with confidence. Ballingarry took control from there and piled on the pressure creating a number of chances before Cathal McMahon scored the equalised from the spot.
Once again the lads character and determination proved too much for the opposition with the fourth goal coming from Jack Mullane with a great individual effort with five minutes remaining. Cathal McMahon pounced on a poor pass to slot home number five to complete the scoring.

Munster Junior Cup Round 4 – Ballingarry 3 (R O’Kelly, D O’Kelly, E Ryan) Galbally United 0
Ballingarry eased into the last 16 of the Munster Junior Cup with a 3-0 win against visiting South Tipp side Galbally United. They were already 1 up through Richard O’Kelly when the visitors had a man dismissed for an off the ball incident but didn’t put clear day light between themselves and United until early in the second half when Denis Kelly fired in from twelve yards.
The issue was put beyond doubt ten minutes from time with the pick of the bunch from Eoin Ryan, a beautiful strike from outside the box.
Team: Kenrick, Clancy, Fitzgerald, Cahill, Healy, O Grady, Kiely, P Ryan (Lenihan), E Ryan, Kelly (Forde), R O’Kelly (D O’Grady)
