Saturday – Under 14 Division 2 – Ballingarry 0 Adare United 1
Under 10 Division 2 – Shauntrade 3 Ballingarry 1 (Gohery)
Under 17 Cup Round 1 – Rathkeale 5 Ballingarry 1 (J. Doherty)
Sunday – FAI Junior Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 1 Bunratty FC 6
A dismal weekend as all three underage teams went under with the greatest disappointment coming in the 17s cup. No three in a row for the winners of the last two seasons as Rathkeale hit them for five. Even the fact the Ballingarry went ahead through Jeff Doherty and then hit the post and had a strong penalty appeal turned down did little to help Ballingarry as poor defending left Rathkeale in for four first half goals. The second half was thoroughly forgettable as Rathkeale scored a fifth to progress with ease.
The 14s lost their unbeaten start to the season as they went under to a second half free kick to Adare United. Ballingarry dominated possession but forged few chances with the only goal of the game arriving fifteen minutes into the second half.
The 10s too were beaten at table toppers Shauntrade where Claire Gohery got the Ballingarry consolation.
The junior teams interest in this seasons FAI junior cup ended last Sunday when visiting Clare side Bunratty ran out easy 6-1 winners. Rory Alymers strike should have been doubled drawing Ballingarry level however Darragh O’Gradys effort from the spot failed and it was all down hill from there.
