Boyle Celtic smiling after Connacht Cup penalty drama

Boyle Celtic are through to the last 16 of this season’s Connacht Cup in junior soccer following Sunday’s dramatic victory at Celtic Park over St Brendan’s of Galway on penalties.

The teams finished level at 2-2 after extra-time, which meant the tie went to penalties.

Both teams were guilty of missing spot kicks in the nervy final moments but the home held their nerve to win the shootout 2-0.

Boyle Celtic manager Jake McCrann spoke to Ocean FM Sport’s Ronan Flanagan after the win:

Elsewhere, Ballisodare Utd reached round 5 with an impressive 3-2 win against Super League leaders Cartron Utd.

Dylan Martin scored an injury-time matchwinner in Galway for Strand Celtic as they beat Craughwell Utd 3-2.

However, there was disappointment for Arrow Harps and St John’s as they both exited the competition at the last 32 stage.
