Youth Div 2 League Cup Final – Ballingarry 0 Pallaskenry 2

A really good game with both teams employing totally different tactics saw Pallaskenry pull off somewhat of a shock in denying Ballingarry the second part of the Division 2 double. Ballingarry dominated throughout but found the winners goalkeeper in Man of the Match form with a string of fine saves with one outstanding save near the end in particular keeping Pallas in the game and when the chances presented themselves they gleefully accepted.
Keith O’Kelly had Ballingarrys best chance of the game when one on one with the keeper put blasted straight at the number 1. As the game wore on it always looked that the first goal could well win it and so it came to pass when Pallaskenry scored from a corner midway through the second half. Ballingarry tried hard and continued to force the play but it was the winners who finally got the all important second with 10 minutes to go.

After the game the clubs Youth player of the year award was presented to Adam Shanagher by manager Dean Clancy.
