Killala 3 Willow Park Blues ( Athlone ) 3
Killala Win 4-2 On Penalties(aet)
In one of the most entertaining games played at Courthouse Street Killala advanced to the last 16 of the competition in a match that had everything.The away team started brightly and were 2-0 up at the break and looking very comfortable.However the home side came out after the break with real hunger and scored after five minutes after a good movement was finished by K Lally.Ten minutes later it was 2-2 after D O Boyle set up K Healy who finished it expertly.However the away team again took the lead only to be pegged back once again by K Healy.The game flowed end to end and a brilliant save by Killala keeper J Flannelly brought the game to extra time.Both teams still went in search of a winner and had chances to win it but another outstanding save by J Flannelly meant penalties would settle the match.D O Boyle scored the first spot kick as did the away team,K Healy scored the second as the other team missed.R Sweeney scored the third as did his opposite number.K Higgins scored number four and Killala keeper J Flannely saved their spot kick to ensure the home team advanced in a cup game that will live long in these players memory.
