Ballincollig 3-13 Glen Rovers 3-12
Ballincollig had been waiting anxiously for this game for some time and when it arrived they were ready for the battle. In the first half Ballincollig scored three goals and seemed to be edging comfortably towards the quarter finals, leading by seven points at halftime we held our nerve throughout the second half but as the match entered the final ten minutes the Glen were to respond with a mighty finish that saw them level the scores as full time approached. Ballincollig dug deep to push ahead again and secure a famous victory by a single point that sees them contest a Quarter Final this weekend against Midleton.

Sadly we have lost a great friend and a massive supporter of Ballincollig GAA, Brendan Keane played on many of our teams and when he finished playing he continued serving this club in many roles including coaching at underage and managing our Junior A footballers. Brendan was the fellow that would be at every Ballincollig match from underage to junior C and quiet often he ended up doing the umpires job when no one else was even at the matches. He will be sadly missed by us all, those of us that knew him will always remember him for his great sense of humour. Our deepest condolences to the Keane and Dorgan families from all in Ballincollig GAA.
