Ballingarrys juniors exited from the Desmond Cup to Division 2 side Carrig Celtic at the last 8 stage on Sunday last (April 16th 2006) in a game that went to extra time to decide the outcome. Schoolboy defending just after the interval saw the homeside race into a 2-0 lead, the first from the spot. It looked as if that would be enough for Celtic as the game entered the final 10 minutes but goals from Joe Scanlon and Darragh O’ Grady sent the game to extra time.
Ballingarry allowed their hosts reclaim the two goal advantage before O’ Grady with his second gave Ballingarry a glimmer of hope. It was’nt to be enough as the Premier side went out.
