Desmond Cup Round 2 – Ballingarry 2 (Alymer, F. Kiely) Killeaney 1 AET.
Three of the four games played by the club over the weekend were cup games with a full quota progressing, with the fourth game an under 10 league game that saw Ballingarry register a 0-0 home draw with Kildimo United. Earlier the 14s had entertained Kildimo’s 14s in the second round of the cup. Coasting at 2-0 with goals from Sean Moran and Davin O’Donnell they somehow let it slip and found themselves 3-2 down with just two minutes remaining. At that point it was gung ho from Ballingarry and fortunately they were awarded a penalty when Aaron O’Connor was upended in the box. Mikey Hickey duly converted to send the tie to extra time. Mikey Morrissey with a screamer from twenty yards restored Ballingarrys lead in the second period of extra time before Nathan Clancy secured their passage with an equally fine but different finish two minutes from the whistle.
The youths were in Pallaskenry where they found themselves three up after just fifteen minutes with two from and another from Sean Lenihan. Pallas made it interesting with a converted free at this point but two more goals from Minogue and Shane Doherty saw last years finalists through.
On Sunday it was the junior A side that were in cup action with Premier visitors Killeaney making them work all the way for their win. No score at the break soon changed after the re-start when Killeaney took the lead before Rory Alymer sent the game to extra time where Francis Kiely sent Ballingarry through.
Team: Kenrick, N. Cahill (D. O’Grady), K. Condron, C. Kiely, Corrigan, F. Kiely, Kennedy, S. Doherty (C. Doherty), Moore, Alymer (Forde), Kelly.
