Ballingarrys under 8s travelled to Abbeyfeale depleted in numbers but put in their best performance of the season. Gary Storin and Gary Moran defended well early on but Enda Moran got Ballingarry going with a 25 yard shot to the corner of the net. Abbey equalised within three minutes but Eddie Foley had Ballingarry ahead again from a breakaway goal before half time. Ronan Keating in the Ballingarry goal was tested early in the second half but met it head on with two outstanding saves. Joe Kelly who was introduced at half time became the target man up front and linked up well with Enda Moran who went up to score three more goals in the second half to bring his tally to four for the day. Abbey got a late consolation to make it 5-2 to Ballingarry.

The 16s were in Broadford and in spite of taking the lead through Darragh Hehir and playing some good football they ended up at the wrong end of a 4-1 defeat.

Rory AlymerSunday proved to be a historic day for the club and Rory Alymer in particular as he became just the thirteenth player in the clubs history to score a hat-trick. Introduced as a substitute in the 70th minute for Evan Quinlivan against Askeaton in the Premier Division league cup with the score at 2-0 to Ballingarry with goals from Fitzgerald and Denis Kelly, he completed his hat-trick in just twelve minutes, the fastest in the clubs history. The first with his first touch when he headed home from Condrons cross after 72 minutes. The second after 80 minutes when he finished off the best move of the game and the third just two minutes later another fine header from another fine cross. Ballingarry were always in control and will now travel to Shannonside in the semi final.
Team: Moore; Condron; Cahill (Corrigan); Fitzgerald; C. Kiely; S. Doherty; C. Doherty; O’Grady (Ryan); Kelly; F. Kiely; Quinlivan (Alymer).
