The first of Saturdays games saw Ballingarrys under 12s get their first point of the season from a deserved draw with near neighbours Granagh. Darragh Kiely was the Ballingarry scorer.
In the MYC 1st round Ballingarry had to go all the way to penalties to progress. Niall Cahill with a last minute equaliser sent the game to extra time where Ballingarry secured their passage through penalties.
On Sunday first up were the under 16s who progressed to the second round of the Barry cup at the expense of NCW. An eight goal game saw the homeside go through 5-3 with goals from Kevin Forde (2) and Kevin Moynihan, James Lodge and Brian Healy scoring one each. The result was somewhat soured as Lodge was sent off for his second booking, dissent, late on in the game.
The Juniors remain unbeaten thanks to a 4-0 stroll against Rathkeales second string on Sunday afternoon. Two goals from Joe Scanlon, one from the spot, one from Denis Kelly and a first goal for Ballingarry from Declan Normoyle sees Ballingarry remain amongst the favourites for promotion.
