Waterford FC U19 1 (Walsh 18) Bray Wanderers U19 1 (Heffernan 45+1p)
Under 19 Elite Southern Division, Ozier Park, 9 April 2017.
Waterford started brightly and forced two early corners within the opening six minutes. Kieran Butler was yellow carded on six minutes for bringing down Martin. The visitors had a let off on 13 minutes when Martin was clean through but his attempted lob went narrowly wide as Brown advanced.
Waterford took the lead on 18 minutes. Darryl Walsh was on hand to tap home after the ball rebounded off the post.
Wanderers almost equalised on 27 minutes. Murray was forced into a double save before Shane Heffernan hit the post. The visitors enjoyed a good spell in the lead up to half time and were rewarded one minute into stoppage time when they were awarded a penalty. Shane Heffernan converted the spot kick for a deserved equaliser.
Brown had to be at his best to save a Griffen drive on 62 minutes. Waterford were awarded a penalty on 76 minutes which Brown saved, diving to his right to push the ball out wide from Roche’s kick.
Three minutes from time, Avis Gawiyu broke away down the left and his cross was eventually cleared off the line by a Waterford defender.
