Town keep their pro­mo­tion push on track

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

CYM Terenure 0, Ark­low Town 2: Ark­low Town recorded an im­pres­sive 2-0 away win at CYM Terenure to keep their pro­mo­tion push firmly on track this week.

LSL DIVI­SION 1 Town be­gan the game ly­ing in sec­ond place, two places and one point above their hosts and equally mind­ful of CYM’s smash-and­grab per­for­mance at Bridgewater Cen­tre Park ear­lier this sea­son, when the Dublin side stole all three points with a soli­tary strike.

On a poor sur­face the game was lit­tered with free kicks, pre­vent­ing ei­ther side from get­ting into a flow­ing rhythm. Town’s rear­guard was strong and de­nied the Dublin side any open­ings, ei­ther from open play or set piece sit­u­a­tions.

The dead­lock was bro­ken ten min­utes be­fore half time with Town striker Wil­lie Doyle net­ting. Im­pres­sive debu­tant Ro­nan Ivory, for­merly on the books of Bray Wan­der­ers, played a good ball out wide to James Dixon who con­trolled well be­fore rolling into the path of Doyle to fin­ish past the ad­vanc­ing CYM goal­keeper.

Town be­gan to dom­i­nate pro­ceed­ings but with only one goal to show for their ef­forts the home side were al­ways in the game. How­ever, mid­way through the sec­ond half the points were se­cured for the Ark­low side.

An Ark­low counter at­tack was started by Ivory who found sub­sti­tute Dave McDon­ald break­ing for­ward.

McDon­ald re­leased Town skip­per Stephen Hur­ley out wide right and his inch per­fect cross was met by the ad­vanc­ing Daragh Mur­ray who pow­er­fully headed home to give the Ark­low side an­other im­por­tant three points to main­tain the push for the ti­tle.
