Ballingarrys underage teams are all off the blocks with several games played during the week past. The under 14s were in Askeaton last Monday where after a dream start when James Storin gave them a first minute lead they went under 4-1. The 8s were in Abbeyfeale where they lost while both Under 10 sides lost 3-1 to Abbeyfeale United and Bally Rovers respectfully.
At the weekend both 10s sides were in action again where they recorded much better results. The A team were 2-1 winners against visiting Broadford United where Ballingarry got off to a perfect start when Calvin Quinn connected with a cross from the left to open the scoring in the first minute. The visitors equalised against the run of play five minutes before the break. Ballingarry had most of the possession during the second period with Broadford defending well. However the winners were not to be denied when Michael Molloy headed brilliantly to the net from a corner. The Bs were also at home with Glin the visitors, both teams were evenly matched with Anna Mullane and Ronal Keating forcing the Glin keeper into fine saves. Ballingarry were defending well with Eamonn Keating, Cathal Moran and Gary Storin working hard to keep the game scoreless at the break.
The homeside took the lead early in the second half when Oran Ryan slotted home Gearoid Fennimans pass. Two fast goals from Glin left Ballingarry in trouble as the game neared its end but with just three minutes remaining Eoin O’Connor came to Ballingarrys rescue when he beat three players to secure a share of the spoils for Ballingarry.
The under 12 girls started their defence of the division 1 title in emphatic style with a 3-0 win in Askeaton. Two goals in the opening four minutes from Anna Mullane and Orla O’Connor set Ballingarry on their way. A third goal three minutes into the second half from Val Sheehy sealed the points.
On Sunday Ballingarry recorded a 2-0 win against Premier division leaders Rathkeale. Both goals were scored in the second half, the first from Denis Kelly and the second with twelve minutes remaining by Kevin Forde.
Team: Kenrick; Condron; Healy; C Kiely; Fitzgerald; Moore; Corrigan; F Kiely; Doherty; Kelly Forde. Subs used: R O’Kelly; Minogue.
John Walsh came off the bench and almost snatched all three points for the B team with his second half strike against Ferry Rangers. However with just five minutes remaining the visitors scored to share the points.
The Ladies team got their new season off to a flyer as they emulated their male counterparts with a win away to Rathkeale. Lisa Kelly (2) and Fiona Hickey were the scorers in an impressive 3-0 win.
