Just one of the four teams in action over the weekend made progress with the youths progressing to the second round of the Munster Youths Cup. The under 8s were well beaten at home to Athea on Saturday with Keith O’ Kelly, Mark Kavanagh and Bryan Mulqueen on the mark for the home side. The youth team were in Askeaton and had to come from behind to draw with their hosts through a James Hayes goal. Ballingarry should have won in normal time such was their dominance but had to go through the drama of a penalty shootout to progress. Alymer, O’ Keeffe, both Fordes and Moore scored from the spot for Ballingarry to seal their passage.

On Sunday both junior sides were on the receiving end on a one-nil scoreline. In the morning the A team probably saw their title dream evaporate with the one-nil defeat at NCW. The only goal of the game came in the 26th minute from poor defending. It would have been worse but for a super show from John O’ Grady in goal who made a string of fine saves to deny the winners more goals. At Glantine in the afternoon the B team suffered their first league loss of the season going down by the same scoreline. The only other game down for the weekend was the under 12 game at Breska but that was called off due to a waterlogged pitch.
