Red­bank fight­back falls just short

Bray People - - Sport -

Red­bank 4, St. Kevin’s 5: When most teams find them­selves 5-0 down, they would col­lapse. Not Red­bank United how­ever.

DIVI­SION 2 Af­ter fall­ing five goals be­hind last Sun­day the Knock­atem­ple men went out and staged a spec­tac­u­lar but ul­ti­mately un­suc­cess­ful come­back, los­ing by a sin­gle goal.

Credit where credit is due though with Andy Carstairs lead­ing the fight­back, fol­low­ing up from last week’s goal with a hat-trick and Robert Cullen net­ting the other one. Avon­more 2, Round­wood 3: This was as the old cliché goes ‘a game of two halves’.

At half- time Aughrim found them­selves three nil down and star­ing in the bar­rel of de­feat af­ter Rob­bie Eyre, Damo Kennedy and John Sayer all reg­is­tered goals for the men from the high­est vil­lage in Ire­land.

Avon­more showed great spirit how­ever and pulled two goals back thanks to Bernie Byrne and Eu­gene Dunne but that was all they could man­age, so the three points went to Round­wood.
