Late dou­ble seals win for Aughrim

Bray People - - SPORTS -

Half time saw three changes for the hosts with Richie Ka­vanagh, Cathal Wo­gan and Bar­coe mak­ing way for Gary McGrath, Si­mon Chad­wick and Gar­rett Dunne and Dunne al­most had an in­stant im­pact when his cross from the right gave Bourke the chance to open the scor­ing but he got his header all wrong.

And that miss was made look a lot more sig­nif­i­cant when Rangers opened the scor­ing with their first chance of the game seven min­utes later. A right wing cross was missed by ev­ery­body but com­ing in from the left was Stephen Davis and his shot slipped through the fin­gers of Wall.

The home side didn’t let their heads drop though and pushed on for an equal­izer and once more it was Bourke at the heart of things in the 64 th minute when he latched onto a long ball for­ward be­fore hold­ing off his man and send­ing his shot trick­ling just inches wide of the far post.

But for all En­niskerry’s good play they came un­done in the last few min­utes as they con­ceded two goals in five min­utes.

First Jim Davis bravely headed home An­drew Holt’s cross be­fore Holt got him­self on the score­sheet with a su­perb dip­ping ef­fort from wide on the right that was wor­thy of winning any game. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11. 1. 2. 3. 4. 5. 6. 7. 8. 9. 10. 11.
