Girls U12 Division 1 – Broadford United 0 Ballingarry 2 (Hayes, McNamara)
Ballingarry kept on course to lift the title with this win at Broadford. Sarah Hayes got a fine individual goal in the opening half before Nicole McNamara added a superb second early in the second half.
Sunday June 5th – Disappointment on the double for Ballingarry.
Having finished second to AK United in the league they were again pipped by the Adare/Kilcornan combination for the cup in an even game played at Cove Park Broadford. A goal apiece in the opening ten minutes set the scene for a close affair that ended with just a goal between the sides.
A superb free kick from Josh O’Connor cancelled out the early United strike and when Ballingarry were awarded a penalty on fifteen minutes it presented a glorious opportunity to take the lead. Unfortunately O’Connor was off the mark with his effort. AK took the lead with fifteen miutes remaining and it was a lead they would maintain until the final whistle although Ballingarry did come close through Kirwin on two occasions.
Division 3 Title Playoff (NCW) – Glin Rovers B 2 Ballingarry B 0
For the second week running it was final defeat for Ballingarry when the B team like the A team the previous week fell at the final hurdle. This Division 3 title playoff offered Ballingarry the last chance of a junior trophy for this season but it wasn’t to be as Glin came through at the finish.
