Premier Division – Carrig Celtic 4 Ballingarry 2 (C Laffan, Connolly)
A debut goal from both Conor Laffan and Dave Connolly wasn’t enough as Ballingarry lost on their travels to Carrigkerry. The home side took the lead early against the run of play only for Conor Laffan to equalise but two goals in the final two minutes of the half gave Ballingarry a mountain to climb in the second half. In fairness to the visitors they did rally but were again suckered when Celtic scored a fourth against the run of play. The best goal of the game from debutant Dave Connolly proved no more than a consolation.
Team: O’Grady, J O’Connor, Quille, Fitzgerald, Long, Moore, K Laffan, C Laffan, Hanley, Hayes, Southgate.
Used subs: Healy, Connolly, Flynn.
