Late goal secures win for Ballyneale

Ballyneale FC defeated Killusty 3-2 in the preliminary round of the Munster Junior Cup last Sunday.

This very competitive game was played in perfect conditions at the foot of Slievenamon.

From the outset, Ballyneale imposed their game on their opponents, creating numerous chances throughout the first half.

Finbar Hickey was again on 
target lobbing the keeper from outside the box, leaving Ballyneale 1 -0 up at the break.

Ballyneale again started strongly 
in the second half with Robbie O’Brien finishing in similar fashion to the first goal. 
To their credit Killusty began to 
cause problems, especially from set 
pieces and scored two goals. It was all to play 
for in the final ten minutes of the game.

Enda Fogarty, who came on for David Morton, scored a fine goal. He picked up possession on the left and kicked the ball into the bottom corner of the net.

Best for Ballyneale were Kevin Hogan and John Noonan. The team play are away to Rosegreen in the next round of the Munster Junior Cup.

It will again be a difficult assignment, but a game the team look forward to in these exciting times for the Club.
