Hogan Cup Round 1 – Kilcornan B 5 Ballingarry B 1
A cracking ten goal game in Ballingarry on Sunday saw Ballingarry and NCW share the spoils. Ballingarry took the lead through Brian Fitzgerald before NCW equalised. Then a two goal salvo one either side of the break from Mike Corrigan and Francis Kiely from the spot had Ballingarry in a commanding lead. NCW reduced the arrears again to just one goal before Dean Clancy restored Ballingarrys two goal advantage. NCW again came back only to see Padraig O’Reilly with his first Ballingarry goal seemingly give the home side an unassailable advantage with just eight minutes of normal time remaining. However a late rally from NCW saw them find the net twice, the last coming four minutes into added time, to secure a draw.
Team: O’Grady; Healy; O’Doherty; Fitzgerald; Corrigan; O’Reilly; Moore; F. Kiely; D. O’Grady (Condron); D. Clancy; Kelly.
The B team were at Kilcornan where they bowed out of the Hogan cup in the first round. The 12s returned from Broadford on Saturday disappointed having lost a game they had looked like winning for long periods. Two Mark Hayes goals, one at either side of the break, had them two to the good. But Broadford finished strongest to score three without reply and collect all three points.
