Ballyhea advanced to round 3 of the championship after a very spirited performance tonight at Kilworth . Played in greasy conditions it took 8 minutes for the first score of the game from a Pa O'Callaghan free . By the end of the first quarter we trailed by 3 points to 2. Pa fired over two more excellent points from play but we still trailed by 3 after 25 minutes 0-7 to 0-4. Ballyhea though finished the half in style . Maurice O'Sullivan's long delivery found Gavin Morrissey who finished to the net to draw the sides level and this was followed by points from Maurice and a spectacular  effort from Jonathon O'Sullivan out by the touch line to leave us 1-6 to 0-7 ahead at the break .  Ballyhea got off to a dream start in the second half when Jonathon O'Sullivan's shot came back off the post and fell to team captain Gavin Morrissey who crashed home his second goal of the night . Carrig though replied with a goal from Rob White 4 minutes later and when Darran O'Driscoll landed a point our lead was back to one . Pa had another point from a free in the 37th minute before David O'Riordan had to be alert to deny the East Cork side a second goal . After this let off Ballyhea playing with great belief and excellent defending surged clear with 3 points from play from Pa O'Callaghan and could have been further ahead when Jonathon O'Sullivan was denied by the Carraig keeper. Ballyhea had further points from Pa , Gavin and Maurice to lead by 6 entering injury time and it was only fitting that Pa had the final score of the game to seal a great victory in the 62nd minute . Ballyhea now go into the hat for the third round draw which is scheduled to be played on week end of July 16th/17th.                    Scorers : Pa O'Callaghan 0-10 (3 fr), Gavin Morrissey 2-1, Maurice O'Sullivan 0-2, Jonathon O'Sullivan 0-1.
