Phoenix AFC 1, Grey­stones AFC 2: Grey­stones fol­lowed up their good per­for­mance against league leaders Ban­gor Celtic last week with a great away win this week­end against high-fly­ing Phoenix AFC.

LSL SE­NIOR DIVI­SION ‘Stones are start­ing to get all their play­ers match fit again af­ter sev­eral suf­fered in­juries and their last two out­ings be­lie their po­si­tion in the league ta­ble.

Grey­stones dom­i­nated this match against Phoenix from start to fin­ish and al­ways looked the likely win­ners. Wayne Byrne mar­shalled the de­fence and Stephen Roche was back to his best in mid­field.

Richie O’Han­lon was the ar­chi­tect of the open­ing goal when his mea­sured cross was met by Shay Brien who bul­leted a header past the home keeper.

‘Stones felt they should have had a penalty in the 43rd minute when Brien was hauled down in the area, but the ref gave the free to Phoenix who went up­field and their cen­tre-for­ward was felled in the box from which they equalised from the re­sul­tant penalty.

The vis­i­tors won the match in the 65th minute when the ev­er­green Shay Brien drilled home a great shot from just out­side the area. Roche, Brien and Thomp­son all went close late on to score a third but were just wide with their ef­forts.
