FAI Junior Cup Round 2 – Ballingarry 2 (Forde, Moore) Listowel Celtic 1
Ballingarrys 15s booked a trip to Kerry in the third round of the National Cup with a comprehensive 4-0 defeat of visiting Knockainey last Saturday. The result was never in doubt once Jason Murphy opened the scoring early on. Aaron O’Connors fine effort and Mikey Hickey penalty had the winners in total command at the break. Aaron Smith added a fourth just after the restart to seal an easy win. The prize is an away 3rd round fixture against Killarney Athletic on November 12th next.
The 8s also won with a 2-1 success at NCW Rovers. This was a game of two halves with Rovers well on top in the first with fine defending and good goalkeeping from Brian Sheehy and Enda Moran keeping Ballingarry in the game. A goal five minutes from the break gave Rovers the half time lead.The second half saw Ballingarry take control from the start with Eoin Lynch in fine form. Eoin O’Connor got Ballingarrys equaliser with a shot from outside the box. Eddie Foley helped Ballingarry keep the pressure on making several strong runs and eventually setting up Eoin O’Connor for his second and Ballingarrys winner.
The 12s enjoyed a 2-1 win against Pallaskenry where Brian Mulqueen and Cathal Cavanagh were on the mark.
On Sunday the juniors entertained Listowel Celtic of the Kerry District Football League in the second round of the FAI junior cup and had to come from behind to clinch their place in the third round. Two evenly matched sides served up an entertaining game with the visitors going ahead five minutes before the break when a corner from the left was adjudged to have crossed the line despite a desperate attempted clearance by Cahill. This was immediately after Kenrick had saved from the spot after Condron conceded. The second half was just five minutes in when Kevin Forde finished well after Francis Kiely brilliantly found him following a jinking run. Ballingarrys passage was sealed by substitute Marcus Moore after he stroked home ten minutes from time.
Team: Kenrick; Cahill; Condron (Quinlivan); C. Kiely; Fitzgerald; Ryan; F. Kiely; Kennedy; Corrigan (Moore); Forde; S. Doherty.
