Junior Division 1 – Pallaskenry 1 Ballingarry 1 (Kelly)
Ballingarry and NCW youths dished up yet another high scoring cup tie in Ballingarry last Saturday with the visitors progressing in extra-time. This repeat of last years Division 1 league cup final saw Ballingarry go two up and then go two down before they finally forced extra time at 4-4. But it could well have been Ballingarry going through when they were awarded a penalty in the final minute but unfortunately Dean Clancys effort from the spot and rebound was saved by the keeper. On the mark for Ballingarry were Dean Clancy, Francie Minogue, Sean Lenihan and Richard O’Kelly with a goal each.
The 14s put clear daylight between themselves and second placed Ferry Rangers with a comprehensive 4-0 win at Old Mill. Sean Moran gave them a 1-0 half time lead with Davin O’Donnell adding a second before a brace from Nathan Clancy secured the points. Ballingarry now find themselves nine points ahead of Ferry Rangers who lost at home to Kilcornan. However Ferry have two games in hand and have also to play Ballingarry twice so there will be no room for complacency.
On a day when Denis Kelly became only the third player in Ballingarrys history to score 100 competitive goals for Ballingarry, the club secured a hard earned draw away to nearest challengers Pallaskenry on Sunday. Ballingarry had the lead at half time thanks to the latest “century” man, this after Shane O’Doherty had seen a penalty saved. The hosts equalised from their first attack of the second half. Still Ballingarry continued to make the better chances with both Alymer and Kelly seeing the keeper deny them.
Team: Kenrick, C. Kiely, Moore, Fitz (Corrigan), Condron, O’Grady, Kennedy, F. Kiely (C. Doherty), S. Doherty, Alymer, Kelly.
