Saturday November 5th
U10 Girls Group 1 – AK Utd 0 Ballingarry 7
U12 Boys Division 2 – Ballingarry 0 Rathkeale 0
The U12s had another fantastic encounter with rivals Rathkeale on Saturday last. The game was full of great skill and effort from both teams all throughout with goal chances at both ends with Rathkeale just having the better of the first half with six shots on goal to Ballingarry’s two.
The second half served up more of the same. Great attacking play from both sides gave the supporters good value on a bitterly cold afternoon. Ballingarry had the edge in this half and came very close on a couple of occasions to breaking the deadlock. However Rathkeale were always dangerous on the counter attack and Sam Faughnan had to make an important save in the dying minutes to keep the score level.
Once again like the previous meeting both teams set out to play football and again it was a great game from start to finish. Well done to all the lads they played really well and to the subs for waiting patiently on the side line on this cold afternoon.

U16 Girls National Cup Round 1 – Cashel Town v Ballingarry OFF
Premier Division – Broadford Utd 2 Ballingarry 0
Broadford United completed the double over Ballingarry with this 2-0 defeat at Cove Park on Sunday. An early goal for the winners set them up and in truth United could have been well up at the break having hit the post twice. A much improved performance form Ballingarry in the second half merited a point but with Ballingarry throwing everyone forward Broadford broke to seal victory with their second in the last minute.
