LEAGUE OF IRELAND UNDER 17 SOUTHERN SECTION, ST. COLEMAN’S PARK, 20 MARCH 2016
Bray Wanderers under 17s suffered defeat in their opening league game of the season in a game which produced two red cards and four yellows.
Luke Devlin’s shot on 23 minutes went narrowly wide for the visitors. Both defences were well organised in a very even first half.
Jack Henry was called into action to make a save on 53 minutes. A scuffle erupted on 66 minutes which resulted in a red card to each side. Bray’s Kieran Butler was unlucky to see red as he stepped in to break up the scuffle. Michael Gardner was yellow carded in the aftermath.
Stephen O’Leary scored the only goal of the game for Cobh on 70 minutes and were denied a second when Henry saved two minutes later. Henry pulled off a great point blank save on 78 minutes to deny the home side again.
