Bray People - - Sport -

ARK­LOW TOWN U-11 B team se­cured their first three points of the sea­son with a 41 win over Grey­stones United B at Bridgewater Cen­tre Park in their WDSL U-11 Divi­sion 1 clash on Sun­day.

U-11 DIVI­SION 1 The vis­i­tors opened the scor­ing with their very first at­tack in the sec­ond minute, a strike from just in­side the box end­ing up in the bot­tom cor­ner of the Ark­low net.

Town’s re­ac­tion was laboured with only Conor O’Brien at left back show­ing the spirit re­quired. Peter Sher­wood dragged the Ark­low side back into the game with an equaliser in the six­teenth minute, slot­ting home un­der the ad­vanc­ing Grey­stones keeper.

William Hors­man pulled off a fine save from the im­pres­sive Grey­stones num­ber six four min­utes later, with the away side press­ing hard to re­store their early ad­van­tage.

Ark­low be­gan the sec­ond­half strongly with raids down both flanks plac­ing the away side on the back foot. Glen Kelly, op­er­at­ing on the left wing cut in­side to put Town ahead with a drive from eight yards out.

Town, un­recog­nis­able from the first-half, dou­bled their ad­van­tage when sub­sti­tute Adam Forde was first to re­act to a loose ball, slid­ing it past the help­less Grey­stones keeper.

An­other of Town’s sub­sti­tutes, Dar­ren Dempsey, had im­me­di­ate im­pact on Town’s at­tack­ing play and though he missed a few chances to in­crease Town’s lead his in­dus­try en­sured the home side con­tin­ued to press for fur­ther goals.

The fourth, the ic­ing on the cake, came in the clos­ing mo­ments with Adam Forde grab­bing his sec­ond goal of the game, a de­li­cious lob over the ‘Stones keeper into the empty net.
