Ballindaggin girls win U-11 Cup with late burst



A THRILLING Under-11 Cup final saw Ballindaggin come from behind to beat Kilkenny United 2-1 with two goals in the last four minutes.

Kilkenny took an early lead through Freya Pender and their well-organised gameplan looked to be seeing them through, but Ballindaggin’s persistence paid off and two late goals from Ella Roban-Casey saw them run out 2-1 winners.

Ballindaggin had completed their Under-11 Premier Division campaign on Tuesday when they travelled to Forth Celtic and picked up the three points to sit top of the table.

They now must wait for Curracloe and Kilkenny to complete their campaigns to see if they remain there.

Bunclody entertained Cushinstown on Sunday, and a narrow win saw them stay alive in the race for the Under-11 Division 1 title.

They were set to meet New Ross Town yesterday (Tuesday). A win for Bunclody would have brought the title race into a three-way play-off, whereas a point would have been enough for Ross Town.

Gorey Rangers moved into a challenging position in Under-11 Division 2 when they travelled to Arklow Town on Monday and overcame the young home side to make it three wins from three. Rangers continued their push for the title on Wednesday when they made the short trip to Courtown and came away with the win to move to within a point of wrapping up the title.

Corach Ramblers and Aughrim Rangers played out an excellent Under-10 Shield final in Bunclody on Saturday, with little or nothing dividing the teams. After a 1-1 draw, the game went all the way to penalties where Corach eventually won out.
