Boyle Celtic win 4-1 on penalties

Updated: Boyle Celtic travelled west on Sunday in the hope of progressing to the next round of the FAI Junior Cup.

In an exciting and nail biting finale, Celtic won 4-1 on penalties after extra time to reach the last 16 of the competition.

Boyle opened the scoring in the 27th minute with a goal from Mick Corrigan before Ballina Town equalised with a penalty.

Soon after the Mayo side took the lead making it 2-1 at half time.

Celtic pressed ahead with some good football and it wasn’t long until Aaron Calpin levelled the game.

Ace Boyle star Luka Roddy rattled home a great goal for Boyle to go into the lead nearing the end making it 3-2.

Just when Celtic thought they were home and dry, Ballina showed they had more in the tank and the game levelled once again.

And there was further drama near the end whistle.

Ballina were awarded a penalty. Boyle thought it was all over, but Kyle Suffin made a great save to see the game head into extra time 3-3.

And thats the way it remained after the extra time was played with a penalty shoot out next on the agenda.

In a day of tense drama Boyle Celtic came out victorious scoring 4-1 on penalties.
