Big win for under 19s

Bray Wanderers ( U19) 5 Treaty United (u19) 1

Three second half goals saw Bray record their second U19 EA Sports National Underage League victory on the spin.

Having beaten Wexford FC 1-0 last Sunday week at Ballycorus, the Seagulls followed that up with a resounding 5-1 success at the same venue on Sunday afternoon.

Wanderers gave run-out’s to first team players Vilius Labutis and Zak O’Neill in midfield and defence in a much changed line-up that defeated the Slaneysiders.

United had a spell in possession which included an effort grazing the crossbar. The Green and White’s took control of the game after that.

They hit the front on 38 minutes when Captain Sam Hayden met a corner with brave header when challenged the Treaty custodian to make it 1-0.

It got even better just three minutes after the interval as a brilliantly worked team goal was finished off by Evan Harte.

The visitors reduced their deficit however just 90 seconds later through Sean Oyibo.

Bray restored their two-goal cushion on 69 minutes. Having been the match winner scorer against Wexford, Josh McGlone finished under pressure into an empty.

Just three minutes later, Sean McLean scored the teams fourth. After stealing the ball off the centre half while pressing high, he then poked the goal into the bottom corner out of reach of the goalkeeper.

Bray had a penalty appeal waved away in the 79th minute only to win a penalty 30 seconds later which was comfortably finished into the bottom right hand corner by centre forward Evan Harte.

Some very impressive team play in possession with Luke O’Connor, Jamie Callaghan and goalkeeper Kajus Arksamitas impressing in particular.

Bray are on their travels on (Easter) Sunday next (April 17) as they take on Waterford FC at the WIT with a 2.00pm kick-off.

Bray Wanderers: Kajus Aksamitas; Zak O’Neill, Sam Hayden, Luke O’Connor, Conor McManus; Jamie Callaghan, Sean McLean; Cillian Melwani, Vilius Labutis, Josh McGlone; Evan Harte.

Subs: Ben Houton, Daniel O’Boyle, Jack Kehoe, Gavin Doyle, Hayden Roche, Evan Laughlin, Ben Clarke, Kieran Mitchell-Lee, Samuel Safaei.
