Bray Wanderers under 19s made it back to back league wins when they came from behind to defeat Galway United in a game played in driving rain.
Luke Clucas shot over the bar from outside the area on 17 minutes. Cian Gilson received a yellow card for a foul on Conor High on 22 minutes. The Galway midfielder was unable to continue. From the resultant free kick, Ronan Manning fired the free kick around the wall and into the bottom corner of the net.
Wanderers put a good move together down the left on 37 minutes. Gilshenan crossed to Kelly but his shot was blocked for a corner.
Three minutes into the second half, Nugent hit the bar for the visitors. On 51 minutes, Connal Flood broke through for Bray but Tierney saved his effort. Wanderers equalised on 63 minutes when Shane Heffernan scored at the second attempt following a goalmouth scramble.
On 81 minutes Heffernan’s cross from the right was headed on by Flood and Tierney was forced to make a great save in tipping the ball over the bar. With one minute remaining on the clock, O’Sullivan was penalised for a foul and received his second yellow card of the game. Heffernan’s resulting free kick, on the right, was headed home by Conall Flood for the winner.
