Hogan Cup Round 1 – Athea Utd B 2 Ballingarry B 3 (O’Hanlon 2, O’Grady)
Ballingarry’s 15s traveled to Ennis to play the CDSL Under 15 Division 1 champions in the National Cup and recorded a marvellous 3-0 success. In truth Ballingarry were never troubled dominating from the start with the only question being how they didn’t score more. As it was they had to wait til the second half for all their goals with Aaron Smith netting two and Darragh Rankin-Hehir the third. Best for Ballingarry on the day were captain Nathan Clancy and Darragh Rankin-Hehir.
The 8s were unlucky at home to Abbeyfeale United getting off to a flyer with Cian McGoey bagging two before Abbey drew level and then went up a goal. Sean O’Connor brought Ballingarry level before United got what proved to be the winner. The 12s recorded their second successive draw with Brian Mulqueen getting both Ballingarry goals against Adare United.
On Sunday the Bs were the only junior team in action and enjoyed the luxury of a missed last minute penalty and still progressed to the second round of the Hogan cup. Athea Uniteds second string provided the opposition where a brace from David O’Hanlon and one from John O’Grady saw Ballingarry through.
