They made sure there was no upset on the cards in round two as they overpowered Mullabrack away from home.
Ballyhegan, who finished in second place in Division 3A, rattled the net four times to win by 21-points.
Their star man James McCormack was in top form up front, and he led the Ballyhegan charge from start to finish.
McCormack was responsible for two of Ballyhegan’s three-pointers and finished with a personal haul of 2-6.
James Havery and Chris McDonald also raised green flags on the night and ended the game 1-1 apiece.
Kevin McCann and JP McKeever chipped in with 0-2 each while James McCann and Jamie McKenna hit 0-1.
