U/12 Boys Div 6 League Final – Ballingarry B 0 AK Utd C 3

Ballingarrys under 12 boys season ended in Woodfield with the league title going to AKs third team following an entertaining encounter. Ballingarry conceded after ten minutes, before that keeper Sean Faughnan had made two good saves. Ballingarry almost equalised after fifteen minutes when Thomas Roche saw his effort saved. Ten minutes before the break Ballingarry had a good chance to draw level when Bernie was fouled and Daly saw his free go just over the bar.

However Ballingarry were given a mountain to climb in the second half when AK got a second goal just before the break. Two minutes into the second half United got a third that clinched the game. Ballingarry did threaten during a much improved second half showing. The introduction of Long and Molloy made a difference with both threatening. This was a fine effort form Ballingarry with many fine performances throughout and no doubt the experience of playing in a final will stand to come in the seasons ahead.

Youths bow out – Munster Youth Cup Rd. 3 – Ballingarry 0 Broadford Utd 1
Following from the heroics of the previous week Ballingarry were left bitterly disappointed to be knocked out of the provincial tournament by Broadford. An under strength Ballingarry never got going creating few chances, the best of which fell to Mark Hayes when he saw his effort saved near the end of the second half.

Sunday November 18th – Ballingarry denied at the death.

Premier Division – Ballingarry 1 (Laffan) Kildimo Utd 1
A draw was probably a fair result although Ballingarry will be disappointed at the manner at which they conceded. A mix up between O’Grady and Fitzgerald presented the visiting forward with the easiest of chances with just five minutes remaining. Before that Ballingarry had taken a first half lead through Kevin Laffan. Mark Hayes saw his penalty saved before Aaron O Connor drove over from six yards. The second half saw a much improved Kildimo go close on several occasions before they eventually accepted the late gift.
Team: OGrady, Hartnett, Flynn, Fitzgerald, Cahill, Hanley, Smith, O’Connor, Hayes, Long, Laffan.
Used subs: J O’Connor, Moore, O’Kelly, Mulqueen.
