Monday April 13th: Under 11 Cup Final (Athea) – Abbeyfeale United 1 Ballingarry 0

The highlight of the weekend was the under 11 cup final but sadly for Ballingarry they went under by the only goal of the game played in Athea. A keenly contested game throughout where there was little between the teams was decided by a harshly awarded penalty after just five minutes. The Abbey striker fell under a challenge from Keith Murphy and referee John Roche was quick to point to the spot.
On Saturday the under 17s booked a final date with Carrig Celtic as they try to become the first team from the club to retain a trophy. This cup semi final was a cracker throughout with Ballingarry coming from behind twice to level with NCW. First Barry O’Connell and then Mark Snow equalised for the holders to see Ballingarry finally go through on penalties.
Both junior teams enjoyed wins on Sunday with first the A yeam winning in Killeaney thanks to a Kevin Forde goal and then in the evening the B team kept right on course for a historic league success with captain Brian Fitzgeraldss headed goal proving decisive at home to Ferry Rangers. Finally the under 12 side became the first team to finish out their league campaign when they were well beaten in Broadford.
