Under 16 Cup Final (Carrigkerry) – Ballingarry 2 (O’Connell, S. Doherty) Broadford United 1
For so long it looked as if the season would be one to forget but it is now proving to be one of the most successful in the clubs history. Last evening in Carrig the under 16s won their cup for the first time in the clubs history.
Broadford United proved capable opponents and took the lead after 25 minutes when a right wing cross was volleyed home from 12 yards. Dean Clancy was fouled in the box to provide Barry O’Connell with the opportunity to restore parity which he did although it took two attempts after the keeper saved his first effort with the rebound falling kindly for him to stroke home. Ballingarry were now in control as the half time whistle was sounded.
The second half was all Ballingarry with Shane Dohertys strike proving decisive but hardly enough reward for their dominance. So the under 16 cup is added to the Division 3 title, the under 17 cup and the Division 1 league cup won by the ladies and with the under 10s to play their Division 1 shield final against NCW and also an under 10 cup semi to come, it could yet prove to be Ballingarrys greatest season ever.
