Ballingarrys under 12 side progressed to the cup semi-final and a trip to Adare with a hard fought win against Abbeyfeale United. While the visitors had most of the possession Lynch in goal for Ballingarry didn’t have a save to make while the same can be said for the Abbey keeper. The all important goal came just after the break when O’Keeffe collected the ball just inside the Abbey half to drive a hopeful ball forward where it flew in over the keepers head. Ballingarry had to survive some Abbey pressure but held out to keep a league and cup double very much alive.
Also on Saturday the Youths made it to the cup final with an easy win against Pallas. This will be just the second time in the clubs history that the club will be appearing in this particular final.
On Sunday next the LDSL will contest the under 12 inter league Munster final when they entertain Waterford SL at Clounreask. Ballingarrys Mikey Morrissey, Nathan Clancy, Mikey Hickey, Cathal O’Keeffe and Davin O’Donnell are all part of the squad that will be hoping to win this title for the first time.
