Bray Wanderers 1 (Barnes 13) Limerick FC 1 (Lynch 78)
Under 19 League, Carlisle Grounds, 3 April 2016
Limerick’s Shane Lowth saw his 8th minute shot deflected out for a corner in an early chance for the visitors at a rain soaked Carlisle Grounds. Bray took the lead on 13 minutes after good work by Dylan O’Connor in the left corner and his cross fell to Shane Barnes who flicked the ball past the Limerick keeper.
Nathan Brennan fired over the bar on 26 minutes. Paddy Obijuru went on a solo run on 36 minutes past the Limerick defence only to delay his shot which was eventually blocked by a Limerick defender.
Darragh Noone’s long range effort hit the visitor’s crossbar on 39 minutes and bounced to safety as the home team pressed for a second.
Sean Fogarty saved from substitute Keith Mawdsley on 55 minutes as the visitors improved in the second half. On 70 minutes Nathan Brennan’s cross was headed over by Shane Barnes.
Limerick were rewarded for their efforts when Jack Lynch equalised on 78 minutes after the Bray defence failed to clear.
Gavin Carroll fired over for Bray in the final minute as both sides had to settle for a point apiece.
