A hectic weekend of football saw six Ballingarry teams in action with four of the six winning. Friday evening in NCW saw the under 16s record a 5-1 trouncing of the locals. Five different scorers were on the sheet as they came from a goal down to secure the three points.
On Saturday the 14s had a fine win in the local derby against Granagh. They led 3-0 from super strikes from Nathan Clancy and Sean Moran (2) before two late goals from the visitors saw a nervy finish. The under 10s hit nine in a fourteen goal game with Jack Hartnett grabbing a hat-trick while the youths went down in Abbeyfeale with Shane Doherty getting Ballingarrys consolation.
On Sunday the A team were left still looking for their first point of the season when newly promoted Askeaton collected all three points from a 3-1 success in Ballingarry. Darragh O’Grady with Ballingarrys first goal of the season but the points were well gone by then as the visitors led 3-0.
No such form from the B team as they got their season off to a flyer in Abbeyfeale against Mountcollins. David O’Hanlon with his second hat-trick for the club and Kristian Doyle were the Ballingarry hitmen. The day saw four players make their club debuts, Alan Cronin for the A’s while Gary Cronin, Barry Fitzgerald and Tadhg Flynn for the B team.
