Bray People - - Sport -

Melville United 0, St. Peter’s Bhoys A 1: Not for the first time, and cer­tainly not for the last time, Jamie Kelly proved to be the hero for St. Peter’s Bhoys once again last Sun­day.

This match had ap­peared to be go­ing to ex­tra time un­til, in the 89th minute, Kelly popped up to net the win­ner and just mo­ments later the ref­eree blew the full time whis­tle, mean­ing the Bray side would be ad­vanc­ing to the next round of the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup.

Slaney Rovers 1, Rath­new AFC 2: There was just no stop­ping Rath­new’s fam­ily duo Nicky and Barry Mer­nagh as they trav­elled to Car­low last Sun­day and recorded a win.

The broth­ers com­bined to give the vil­lagers a 2-0 lead be­fore Rovers clawed one back but Rath­new’s de­fence held strong and they booked their place in the 2nd round of the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup.

En­niskerry YC A 1, Grey­stones United (LSL) 2 (AET): One Wick­low team was guar­an­teed to have their name in the draw for the next round af­ter Le­in­ster Se­nior League side Grey­stones United drew Wick­low League side En­niskerry YC and it was the men from Le­in­ster who emerged vic­to­ri­ous af­ter ex­tra time.

En­niskerry’s Ger Har­vey found the net for the home team while Ol­lie El­li­son net­ted for ‘Stones.

Ex­tra-time came then and with two min­utes left in the sec­ond pe­riod, penal­ties were loom­ing un­til Mick O’Brien broke En­niskerry hearts with his late, late win­ner.

Glen­cor­mac United 1, Howth Celtic 6: They may be fly­ing high in the league but un­for­tu­nately Kil­mac side Glen­cor­mac United couldn’t take that form with them into the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup as Dublin side Howth Celtic hit ‘em for six.

There was at least some­thing for the Glens to cheer about how­ever, with Mick Rooney net­ting a late con­so­la­tion. Rooney was also one of his side’s best per­form­ers, along­side Shane Devlin and Mick Mol­loy.

St. An­thony’s A 1, Bal­ly­hown FC 2: St. An­thony’s par­tic­i­pa­tion in the Le­in­ster ju­nior Cup was sadly ended last Sun­day af­ter they wel­comed Bal­ly­hown FC to Finn Park.

They couldn’t make home ad­van­tage pay how­ever and de­spite a Glen Tighe ef­fort find­ing the net, it wasn’t to be for the Kil­coole side.

Mullingar Town 2, Wick­low Town A 0: The dream of winning the Le­in­ster Ju­nior Cup is over for Wick­low Town for an­other year af­ter the Premier Divi­sion side were beaten 2-0 by West­meath out­fit Mullingar Town.

Ark­low Town A 0, Ev­er­green FC 4: This day cer­tainly won’t live long in the mem­ory for the Ark­low Town lads, suf­fer­ing a heavy 4-0 at the hands of Kilkenny out­fit Ev­er­green FC.

Hanover Harps 6, Avon­more FC 0: Avon­more must have been won­der­ing why they both­ered af­ter trav­el­ling up to Car­low only to be re­sound­edly beaten 6-0 by Hanover Harps.
