Jack Hanrahan scored twice and Darren Looney once in Celtic’s win.
Unfortunately The Park went out 4-3 to Pike Rovers after extra time.
15’s National Cup Round 3:
Ballyhar’s love affair with the 2012/13 National Cup’s continue as their 15’s sides progressed after a breath-taking win over Connolly Celtic at Must Scott Park. Shane O’Donoghue and Liam Brosnan looked to have made sure of Ballyhar’s progress to the next round as they led 2-1 going into the last minute of normal time. However their opponents had other ideas and equalised with the last kick of the game. With no extra scores in extra time it was onto penalties and after an amazing 20 penalty shoot-out Ballyhar won 7-6. Patrick Daly in the Ballyhar goal was in outstanding form saving three spot kicks and Luke Fitzgerald showed great composure to knock in the winning score.
In Round 4 Ballyhar will travel to Mungret Regional who knocked out Kingdom Boys this weekend. The Limerick side won on a 7-2 score-line so Ballyhar will have to be at their best to keep this great run going.
Killarney Celtic travelled to Nenagh and looked to be cruising at half time leading 3-0 with goals from Peter McCarthy, Dion Marcos and Cathal O’Shea. However Nenagh came back to make it 3-2 but Celtic were able to hold on.
The Hoops now travel to Kilmallock who ended Killarney Athletics interest on Saturday on a 5-4 score-line. However that doesn’t tell the story of the game as Athletic were 4-0 down only to level matters with goals from James Suter, Michael Potts, Padraig O’Brien and Joe Glinwood. Athletic unfortunately also missed a penalty and were on the wrong side of a couple of ‘home town’ refereeing decisions.
The Park went out going down 1-0 away to Herbertstown. The only goal of the game came 20 minutes from time from a ‘soft’ penalty.
