FAI Junior Cup Round 4 – Dingle Bay Rovers 3 Ballingarry 3 (Ryan 2, Fitzgerald) AET Rovers win 4-2 on pens.
On Saturday the 12s recorded a fine win at Carrig where Cathal Kavanagh proved the match winner with the only goal of the game. The 16s remain rooted to the foot of division 2 following a 3-0 loss at home to table toppers NCW Rovers. Ballingarry were two down at the break but a fine second half performance yielded nothing with Rovers getting their third in the last minute. The under 8s were in Askeaton where the game offered everything in terms of excitement with both teams playing a fast passing game. Cian McGoey got Ballingarry going with a first half goal. Great work from Gary Storin and Brian Sheehy led to Gearoid Fenniman scoring Ballingarrys second midway the second half to give Ballingarry a 2-0 win. The under 8 programme now closes until March and after seven games Ballingarry find themselves in third position on twelve points and well positioned to appear in one of the league finals. The 10s also enter their Winter break until February and they find themselves on top of division two with eighteen points from six games.
On Sunday the A team were in Dingle where they made their exit from the FAI junior cup after going down 4-2 on penalties. Ballingarry took the lead through Eoin Ryan but found themselves 2-1 down at the break when two goals in a minute, the first from the customary Kerry penalty, had them behind at the break. Ryan again drew Ballingarry level before Brian Fitzgerald put Ballingarry in front. However they were unable to hold out for a famous win but leaked a third goal that sent the tie to extra time. Ballingarry had their chances to win but failed to convert. Eoin Kennedy and Francis Kiely found the net from the spot in the shootout while Ryan and Denis Kelly failed to leave the Kerrymen to progress to the fifth round.
