Junior Division 1 – NCW Rvs 0 Ballingarry 2
A superb weekend of football saw Ballingarry win three out of the four games played.
On Saturday the under 14s travelled to Askeaton to return home with all three points. A first ever hat-trick for John O’ Gorman had Ballingarry coasting, however a second half rally from Askeaton had them level before a late volley from Dean Clancy secured the points for Ballingarry.
The under 10 A team were in action in the morning but fell to their second league defeat of the season. Visitors Foynes raced into a two nil half time lead against a slow starting Ballingarry but a spirited fight back which saw Nathan Clancy net twice had them level. Some good chances went a begging for Ballingarry before Foynes got what proved to be the winner five minutes from time.
The youth side progressed to the third round of the national cup at the expense of guests Pallaskenry. Two from Kevin Forde and one each from Robert Hannon and Steven O’ Brien saw Ballingarry ease through.
On Sunday it was the turn of the club flagship with a repeat of last seasons Desmond cup final in Newcastlewest. Even at this early stage of the season this was billed as a possible title decider with both teams setting the pace in the division. A good game resulted with Ballingarry recording a superb 2-0 success. Both goals were scored in the first half with Rory Alymer and Denis Kelly, the man who broke their hearts in Clonreask last May, doing the damage. The result leaves Ballingarry clear leaders at the top of the division.
There will be no action on the field next weekend as the club have received a free weekend as they will be on “international” duty in Croke Park for the visit of Germany.
