UMBRO FAI JUNIOR CUP Broadford United 1 Killarney Celtic 1 (Broadford won 5-4 on penalties after extra-time). IN a bad weekend for Kerry soccer in outside competitions Killarney Celtic surprisingly made they exit from the FAI Junior Cup at Celtic Park going down in penalties to Desmond League side Broadford United.
A lack of discipline cost them dearly as they had a player sent off in the first half and this did not help their cause.
Robert Watson put Celtci ahead but immediately afterwards they conceded an equaliser. Celtic also failed with a penalty kick as Peter McCarthy effort was saved by the Broadford goalie.
The sides were deadlocked after 90 minutes and again after extra time so it progressed to a penalty shoot-out. It was 4-4 after the regulation 10 penalty kicks and it then went to sudden death.
The visitors scored the first one but David Hayes effort was saved and Broadford were winners. It was a disappointing defeat for Celtic as they would have a home draw in the next round.
