FAI Junior Cup Round 3 – Ballingarry 1 (Moore 1) St. Brendans Park 2
Ballingarry bowed out of the National cup on Sunday to Kerry Premier champions Park with a goal in the last minute of normal time. In fairness the visitors were the better side but it was Ballingarry who took the lead when Marcus Moore found the target from all of thirty yards five minutes before the break. Minutes before Park had struck the crossbar while Kenrick saved from point blank range.
Ballingarry got two glorious chances early in the second half to double their lead when Forde hit the post and Clancy shot over when an error put him through on goal.
Park gave warning what was to come as they took control as the end neared. The crossbar saved Ballingarry from a free outside the box while Park thought they had scored from a corner but the ball was cleared off the line.
Eight minutes from time they did equalise. The ball was delivered into the box from a free and when Ballingarry failed to clear the ball was scrambled home. Kelly had a chance to win it for Ballingarry but with extra time looking a certainty Park struck the deadly blow when the ball was headed into the path of the Kerry forward and he made no mistake from twelve yards.
Team: Kenrick; Doherty (Alymer); Fitzgerald; Corrigan (O’Kelly); C. Kiely; Moore; F. Kiely; Reilly; Clancy; Forde (Ryan); D. Kelly
