Despite the very warm conditions, both teams put on a fine display in this 5th round encounter of the U-12 Group 2 competition.
Setanta dominated in the first half with very strong displays from Mike Nzongong (2-2) , Evan Maguire (0-2), Aonghus O'Se (1-0) and Daniel Donegan (0-1). It could have been worse for the home team, but for some heroic defending by Craig Bermingham and Donnacha Murphy. Donal Quirke (1-0) kept Ballinkillen in the game with the team's only score before the break to leave the half-time score 3-5 to 1-0 for Setanta.
After the break, Ballinkillen pulled their way back into contention with goals from Eamonn Normanly (2-0), Donal Quirke (1-0) and Jack McLoughlin (1-1). Setanta didn't panic and scored 3-1 of their own in the second half, driven on again by Mike Nzongong, to finish the game as worthy winners. The final score was Ballinkillen 5-1 Setanta 6-6.
