The 16s became the first underage club team to exit their cup when the fell 5-1 at Kilcornan in the first round. Aaron Smith got Ballingarrys consolation. The 8s also went under losing 3-1 at home to NCW.
On Sunday the A team extended their lead at the top of the Premier with a 2-1 home success against Shannonside. A good game in woeful conditions saw Ballingarry go in front when Kevin Forde scored a fine goal. The visitors equalised on the stroke of half time when slack defending allowed Behan to capitalise. Shannonside dominated the early stages of the second half forcing Kenrick to make two fine saves. It was against the run of play that Ballingarry got their second and all important goal when Kelly was fouled in the box and Francis Kielys spot kick was too powerful for the keeper.
Ballingarry had chances to avoid a nervy finish when Kelly was denied by a fine save and when the keeper seemed to block Francis Kielys effort outside the box.
Team: Kenrick; Doherty; Clancy; Moore; Fitzgerald; O’Grady; D. Clancy (C. Kiely); Healy (O’Kelly); Kelly; Forde; F. Kiely.
