Jimmy Falvey Youth Cup 1/4 Final
Killarney Athletic 1-1 Castleisland , Athletic won 5-4 on pens .

Athletic youths played Castleisland in the quarter final of the Jimmy Falvey cup in Ferndale. A very tight affair with both sides giving little away. It was Castleisland scoring first, mid way through the first half. Athletic battled hard and were unlucky not to equalise. A couple of great saves by Kieren Thomson kept Athletic in the game and we went in 1 down at half time. Athletic upped the momentum after the break and some great work by Lorca’s Martin led to Monz equalising with a well taken goal. Deadlocked at full time. Both sides had chances in extra time but it remained 1-1 and penalties were to decide who would go forward to the semi finals. Athletic scored all their penalties and won 5-4.
Well done to all the players, all played outstanding.
