Ballingarry did equalise when they scored after the ball broke from their corner. Ballingarry had numerous corners in the first half but Askeaton held out for 1-1 at halftime.
Brooklyn Delahunty made it 2-1 5 minutes into the 2nd half but the visitors pulled it back to 2-2 10 minutes later.

Abbeyfeale Utd B 0-3 Askeaton AFC
Great game against a tough side, we were down to 10 men 15 mins into the second half. The score was 1 nil and the boys dug deep and controlled the game well. Went on to score 2 more goals to come away with all 3 points.
All at Askeaton AFC would like to offer their condolences to the family, relatives and friends of the late Oliver (Ollie) Ring.
At this sad time, our thoughts and prayers are with Oliver’s son Ken who coaches our U/8 team and grandson Sean U/8 player and his extended family.
May he Rest in Peace.
We would also like to offer our sincere sympathies to Orla, Tara and all the Walsh & Sheahan family on the passing of Sandra. Sandra will be terribly missed by all her family and friends. May she Rest in Peace
