Grey­stones too good for Eden­derry

Grey­stones AFC 4 Eden­derry Town 1

GREY­STONES TOOK the lead in this one af­ter just 12 min­utes when Phil Cooney’s cross was de­flected into his own net by an Eden­derry de­fender.

The hosts then dou­bled their lead in the 26th minute. Paul O’Sul­li­van be­gan a fine team move be­fore run­ning onto Neil Fenton’s lay-on to crash the ball home from 20 yards.

It wasn’t all one-way traf­fic though, and Stones keeper John Blake had to be alert to deny Eden­derry from a free-kick.

The vis­i­tors task then got more dif­fi­cult when the home side got their third. A good move in­volv­ing Aaron O’Con­nor and Cooney saw Ja­son Byrne skin the full-back be­fore pulling it back for Greg Bres­lin to slot home.

And Bres­lin’s side then all but wrapped up the points be­fore the break af­ter Ja­son Byrne set up Bres­lin with an­other cross from the right, and the mid­fielder was able to beat the Eden­derry cus­to­dian to grab his sec­ond of the af­ter­noon.

Two good saves from Blake in the 55th and then 60th minute kept the vis­i­tors at bay but they did pull a goal back in the 78th minute af­ter their cen­tre-half pow­er­fully headed home from a cor­ner.

Bres­lin then came close to net­ting a hat-trick in the dy­ing min­utes, but he shot wide af­ter beat­ing two de­fend­ers.

Grey­stones: John Blake, Aaron O’Con­nor, Ian Brit­ton, Gary Mur­phy, Ro­nan Laf­ferty, Ian Ho­ran, Ja­son Byrne, Paul O’Sul­li­van, Greg Bres­lin, Phil Cooney, Neil Fel­ton. Subs: Ian McNa­mara, Conor Gorm­ley, Lee Os­borne, Si­mon Byrne, Richie O’Rourke.
