Ballingarrys 15s made their exit from the National cup in Killarney when the local Athletic side hit them for seven. After Jason Murphy had given the visitors the lead it turned into a day to forget as the home side ran riot on the score board.
The 8s went under at Broadford after the homeside scored early but Ballingarry settles and were on the attack for the remainder of the half but the homeside held out and hit again on the break to lead by two at the break. The introduction of Padraig McKenna, Ciara Houlihan and Gearoid Fenniman helped to keep the pressure on in the second half but Broadford were not to be denied.
The 10s were leading 3-1 at Adare and looking good but a late rally from the hosts saw them drop two valuable points. Two goals from Brian Mulqueen and one from Cathal Kavanagh secured the point.
On Sunday the A team took the lead three times against Shannonside through Marcus Moore, Rory Alymer and a penalty from Eoin Kennedy but were denied all three points by a last minute goal. Team: Kenrick; Cahill; Condron; Fitzgerald; Darragh O’Grady; Corrigan; Ryan; Moore; Kennedy; Alymer. Sub Used: Kelly.
On Sunday also the B team were in action with the re-fixed Hogan Cup second round game and gave a fine footballing performance in defeating St Itas B by 4 goals to 1. Kristian Doyle with two, with a well constructed goal and David O’Hanlon with the best goal of the game were the victors scorers.
In Inter-league news the Desmond Schoolboys had two teams in friendly action in Portlaoise where the 16s and 15s played against their counterparts from the Midlands league. Nathan Clancy played a half for both teams in what was a 2-1 defeat for the 16s and a 1-1 draw for the 15s where Liam McCarthan of NCW scored the goal.
