Div 3 League Cup Round 1, 2nd Leg – Ballingarry 0 Carrig Celtic 2 – Celtic win 2-3 on aggregate.
It was cup all the way over the weekend at both junior and schoolboy level with both underage teams that were in action progressing while the junior B team went out of their cup. On Saturday after getting a bye in round 1 of the cup the 10s played Mountcollins who are unbeaten in division 3, at home in the cup. After going two up within ten minutes and at this point Ballingarry had the game under control but were unable to score again during the first half. The visitors worked hard to pull one back but Ballingarry regained their 3 goal advantage with the game ending 4-1 to Ballingarry.
The 13s were in Killeaney where their first defence of the cup they won last season got off to a flyer. The home side had no answer as Keith O’Kelly with five, Jack Lyons with a hat-trick and Adam Long saw Ballingarry win 9-0.
On Sunday it was heart break for the B team as they were just 2 minutes away from the league cup quarter final. Leading 2-1 from the first leg Ballingarry could have afforded to go under by a 1-0 scoreline and still progress on the away goals rule. With Carrig leading 1-0 Ballingarry had what appeared a good goal disallowed but still looked to have done enough as the clock ticked down. They had already hit the woodwork through Doyle. However it was the visitors who were to have the last say as they scored from a corner with just two minutes remaining.
In inter league the LDSL under 16s were in action in Cork as they drew with the NTSL 1-1. Ballingarrys Nathan Clancy started for the league.
