Junior Division 1 – Ballingarry 3 (Forde 2, Kennedy) Pallaskenry 2

The junior A team got back to winning ways when Pallaskenry were the victim of a 3-2 win in Ballingarry. Ballingarry dominated enough to win two games with the post twice, poor finishing and a missed penalty all pointing to what could have been a disaster. Pallas took the lead only for Forde to cancel it out. Pallas regained the lead early in the second half only for Forde again to do the needy and then when it looked as if it may end all square up popped Eoin Kennedy to secure all three points for Ballingarry with his first league goal of the season.
Team: Pat Kenrick, Eoin Cahill, Niall Cahill, Colm Kiely, Kieron Condron, Francis Kiely, Shane Doherty, Darragh O’Grady (Kelly), Kevin Forde, Eoin Kennedy, Rory Alymer (M. Moore).

On Saturday the 8s recorded their second successive win and so enter the winter break well placed in the table. Seamus Houlihans goal proved the difference. The 11s bowed out of the cup in the first round against a good Athea United side. Athea went one up and two up but two great finishes from Stuart Keane and Jack Hartnett saw the sides level at the break. However the visitors finished stronger in the second half leaving Ballingarry well beaten at the finish.
