Moycarkey-Borris travelled to play Ballingarry in the County Hurling League on Sunday last. Ballingarry played with the aid of the wind in the first half but it was Moycarkey who started better with points by Kieran Morris (free) and Paul Dempsey putting the visitors in front by 0-2 to 0-1 after five minutes. Eventually, Ballingarry took a grip on the game and scored the next five points to race in to a 0-6 to 0-2 lead at the end of the first quarter. The second quarter was more even, as Kieran Morris kept Moycarkey in touch with four pointed frees. As the wide count for Ballingarry increased, the half-time score of 0-9 to 0-6 in Ballingarry’s favour was not insurmountable. 

Moycarkey and Ballingarry shared the first six scores of the second half before Moycarkey reeled off three points without reply from Kieran Morris (2) and Mossy Bracken to level the scores at 0-12 apiece entering the final quarter. Dylan Walsh put Ballingarry in front soon afterwards before Paul Dempsey equalising for Moycarkey in the 51st minute. The final ten minutes would determine the ultimate outcome but it was Moycarkey who were held scoreless during this period. Ballingarry managed to score the final two points of the game along with five wides as the South side dominated possession in the final stages.
