Juniors Season Ends Trophy-less / Under 11 Cup Winners

The curtain came down on the season for Ballingarry on Sunday last (May 25th 2014) with a home loss against Shannonside and so confirms another trophy-less season for the junior men. On Friday they had travelled to Carrig Celtic where they secured a 4-4 draw in exciting circumstances. Trailing 4-1 with twenty minutes remaining it looked bleak for Ballingarry. But enter Francis Kiely with a glorious hat trick, his first goal a brilliant free kick, to save the day with his third on the stroke of full time. It was his fourth hat trick for the club. Kevin Forde had scored Ballingarrys first in the opening half.

It wasn’t all doom and gloom over the weekend as the under 11 side lifted the cup for only the second time in the clubs history. Goals from David Geary, a brilliant near post header from man of the match Mike Molloy and an insurance goal from Seamie Lenihan saw the 11s cup return to Ballingarry after a nine year gap. Afterwards captain Darren Bridgeman accepted the cup from Tom Ambrose.
