A busy weekend of football saw five Ballingarry teams in action with a classic in NCW to start proceedings. The under 8 side found themselves 3-nil down at the break and 4 down after just two minutes of the second half but a tremendous second half show saw Ballingarry snatch a point with two goals each from Keith O’Kelly and Brian Mulqueen with the last goal just three minutes from time.
The under 12 B team were 1 up at the break through Jack Hartnett with his second goal of the season but a strong visiting Glantine eventually won with three second half goals.
The under 16s moved to the top of the table with a hard earned win against Abbeyfeale United. Finding themselves a goal down at the break after dominating for long spells could have broken lesser teams but a long range free from Barry O’Connell and a second from Jeff Doherty gave the homeside the points. Abbey were forced to finish with nine after a player was red carded and a player was carried off when all subs were used.
On Sunday both junior sides failed to win with the B team going down at home to Knockaderry where Gary Cronins first club goal wasn’t enough in a 2-1 loss while the A team were just two minutes away from their first win of the season when Rory Alymers brace had them 2-1 up however Carrig equalised from a free to secure a 2-2 draw.
