Girls U14 Division 1 Title Playoff
– Ballingarry 2 (Hayes, O’Dwyer) Abbeyfeale Utd 0
On a glorious Summer evening at Woodfields Ballingarry finally got the upper hand on Abbeyfeale United and lifted the Division 1 title thanks to this 2-0 playoff win in a tremendous game. Having finished level on points at the end of the league a playoff was required to separate the sides and following the disappointment of losing the cup final to Abbeyfeale it was a truly fitting end to the season for this bunch of girls.
Ballingarry took an early lead when Sarah Hayes reacted fastest when the keeper fumbled Siobhra Walsh’s delivered free. Ballingarry were comfortable for the remainder of the half and added to their lead early in the second half when Nicole O’Dwyer finished from a goal mouth scramble. This second goal was the cushion Ballingarry needed and from here on Ballingarry were always in control.
It would be unfair to single out anyone player for their performance, suffice to say that all girls were magnificent on the night and thoroughly deserving of the success.
