Desmond Cup Round 1 – Ballingarry 2 Foynes 0
Just one team out of the four in action recorded a victory over the weekend, that being the junior side on Sunday as they began their defence of the Desmond cup in style. Foynes proved tough opponents keeping Ballingarry at bay until fifteen minuted from the break. A corner to the holders was not cleared and Mike Corrigan was on hand to half volley to the net from the edge of the box. The second period saw Ballingarry continue as the better side but it wasn’t until Denis Kelly got the winners second that Ballingarry could rest easy. The shine was somewhat taken off the result with the sending off of Declan Normoyle near the end.
On Saturday the club recorded no win from the three teams in action. In the morning the under 10 A side were involved in a cracker as the league resumed after the Winter break. Athea went a goal up with a super strike in the first half with Tiernan Fitzgerald getting Ballingarrys second midway through the second. Ballingarry had chances to win but a fine display from the home keeper ensured a share of the points.
The under 14s went down in Abbeyfeale while the youths disappointed in NCW going out of the Desmond youth cup by the only goal of the game.
