Junior Division 3 – Pallaskenry B 1 Ballingarry B 5 (P. Forde 3, O’Hanlon 2)
It was league success for Ballingarry but cup failure over the weekend. On Saturday the under 13s went out of their cup at home to Creeves. No score at the break with the best chance falling to Conor Houlihan but the keeper saved. A bad mistake led to the opening goal and it was all downhill after that with the visitors running out easy winners.
The youths recorded their first win of the season with a fine 5-2 victory at home to Adare. A superb performance saw them recover from a goal down with all Ballingarrys goals coming from under 15 players Barry O’Connell (2), Anthony Forde (2) and Shane Doherty with one.
On Sunday the junior sides season of woe continued with the Premier cup the latest competiton to exit. Killeaneys one nil win sees Ballingarry with just the Desmond cup to look forward to. No such fare for the B team who took another giant step towards the Division 3 title. Padraig Forde added another hat-trick to his already impressive career CV while a brace fron David O’Hanlon secured all three points from their visit to Pallaskenry.
