A late Sean O'Kelly proved decisive as Ballyhea picked up a second consecutive league win , defeating Killeagh in sun drenched Ballyhea on sat evening . Points from Jonathan McCarthy (2) , Ryan Hanley (2), Liam O'Connor and Eugene O'Leary had us a point down  7-6 after 23 minutes . The visitors finished the half well though scoring 1-3 while John Morrissey replied with an injury time point to leave 6 points between the sides 1-10 to 0-7 at half time . Killeagh stretched the lead to 7 with the first score of the second half . Maurice O'Sullivan replied with a fine point before Mikey Browne had to be alert to deny Killeagh a second goal . Ballyhea introduced Pa O'Callaghan returning from injury with over 20 minutes remaining . His impact was immediate when he got on the end of Liam O'Connor's line ball and finished to the net to leave 3 in it . Points from Pa and Eugene O'Leary left the bare minimum between the sides entering the last quarter . Both sides exchanged points before Killeagh went 2 ahead again with 5 minutes to go . The East Cork side seemed to have the game sealed when their corner forward got in behind the home defence and was about to tap in to an empty net when Owen O'Sullivan somehow got back to prevent a certain goal . Having survived this scare ,Ballyhea despite shooting 19 wides ,snatched victory when for the second week in a row bang in form Sean O'Kelly found the net to put us a point ahead with a minute remaining and claim our third league victory . The last game of the opening round of the league is Friday week away to Ballymartle .
