FAI Youth Cup Round 1 – Kilorglin 1 Ballingarry 6 (Hayes 2, Sparling, Southgate, O’Kelly, Casey)
Ballingarry totally outplayed their opponents to progress to the second round of the National cup.
U/14 Girls National Cup – Holycross 0 Ballingarry 2 (Kenny 2)
In very wet Saturday conditions the clubs current under 13 girls took part in the under 14 National Cup. Making the journey away to Holycross Tipperary. They started well and were in control for long periods of the first half without creating too many scoring chances in front of goal. Holycross had chances too but were kept out with some fine saves from Kelsey Quinn in goals.
In the second half Ballingarry played the ball around with confidence and knew they would eventually break the deadlock. They were rewarded with a goal 5 minutes into the second half with a Donna Kenny strike. This boosted the girls who then took control. A second Donna Kenny goal followed mid-way through the second half after a great team build up starting at the back and working through midfield. Holycross were kept out late in the game with some great saves from substitute keeper Caoimhe Cunningham. Credit to all the players who played superbly throughout. Many thanks to all who braved the elements and made the trip to support the girls. A special mention to Holycross for a very sporting game and also to thank them for their hospitality. Tea, coffee, a selection of cakes, sandwiches and treats were very welcome.
