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.

Castlebar Town 3 Killala 4

Killala traveled to Castlebar Town in the first round of the F.A.I. U-13 cup on Saturday in what promised to be a close encounter and so it was with Killala emerging victorious winning 4-3.
Killala took the lead early in the game when Killala captain K Higgins put a free kick into the box and D Lawlor scored to put the visitors deservedly in the lead.
Castlebar got an equaliser when it seemed that the Killala Keeper D Walsh had a shot well covered but it took a cruel deflection and ended up in the back of the net.
Both teams battled hard but it was Castlebar who took the lead late into the first half.
Killala deservedly equalised on the stroke of half time when Killala midfielder K Healy scored.
Killala once again took the lead when K Healy got his 2nd of the game then substitute B Lawlor on for C McHale put a great ball through for A Kearney to score which proved to be the winner as Castlebar pulled one back near the end and threw players forward but Killala held firm thanks to Killala’s man of the match K Higgins in defence to record a 4-3 win.
Killala team:
Declan Walsh, Peter Lynott, Conor Mooney, David Lawlor, Cian McHale, Keith Higgins (Capt), Kevin Healy, Anthony Kearney,
Nathan Browne, Shane McAndrew, Kieran Lally. Sub Brian Lawlor.
