Ballingarry 3 (Clancy, O’Donnell, O’Keeffe) NCW 5 AET
With 30 seconds remaining Ballingarry had the under 12 cup won. But a late late strike for NCW sent the game to extra time where NCW hit two goals without reply to record a 5-3 win. It was a classic final with Ballingarry taking the lead through Nathan Clancy after 10 minutes.
NCW equalized only for Davin O’Donnell to restore Ballingarrys lead with a super strike to leave the Division 1 champions ahead at the break. O’Keeffe had a glorious chance to put Ballingarry 3-1 up early in the second period but shot wide before NCW drew level for a second time. Cathal O’Keeffe put Ballingarry back in front from a free with twenty minutes to go and it looked as if Ballingarry would hold out for their first ever 12s cup success but for that late Newcastlewest goal.
