FAI Junior Cup Last 16
Ballynanty Rovers – 1
Killarney Celtic – 2
Killarney Celtic progressed to the quarter-finals of the FAI Junior Cup for the first time in 25 years after they defeated Ballynanty Rovers 2-1 at Limerick IT on Sunday afternoon.
Despite the Kerrymen being reduced to ten men early on in the first-half, the game remained air tight until the final twenty minutes when Stephen McCarthy powered the ball home to make it one-nil.
Ten minutes later Wayne Sparling sealed the victory with Killarney’s second of the game and despite a late goal from Ballynanty’s Jamie Daly it proved nothing more than consolation.
Killarney now ensure the Kerry District League have a member club in the final eight of Europe’s biggest cup competition.
