Junior Division 1 – Ballingarry 3 Abbeyfeale United B 0
A great weekend on the playing front for Ballingarry as both teams in action making progress.
On Saturday the under 17s recorded a first as they progressed into the semi finals on the domestic cup. A hard fought encounter against visitors Glin Rovers went all the way to penalties following a 1-1 draw. Kevin Forde was the home sides scorer in the first half. Forde was again on the mark during the shootout as was John Ruttle, James Hayes, Marcus Moore and Steven O’ Brien as Ballingarry went through 5-4.
On Sunday the juniors cut the lead at the top of Division 1 to just two points with a well deserved win against Abbeyfeale United B. Francis Kielys early strike had the home side up by the minimum at the interval with further second half goals from Denis Kelly and Darragh O’ Grady making sure of the points.
With just half of their league programme now completed Ballingarry find themselves well placed for a rapid return to the premier.
