Wick­low Rovers see off ’Stones

Bray People - - SPORT -

Wick­low Rovers 3, Grey­stones FC 1: It took Wick­low Rovers un­til the 70th minute to open the scor­ing in this one over the week­end de­spite pep­per­ing the Grey­stones goal with shot af­ter shot af­ter shot.

The host hit the wood­work and forced the Grey­stones goal­keeper into a string of top class saves be­fore fi­nally break­ing the vis­i­tors stub­born de­fence when sub­sti­tute Thomas Smullen and Paul O’Neill com­bined to set up David O’Sul­li­van, who fired his side into the lead.

With nine min­utes re­main­ing Rovers young­ster Luke Byrne earned his side some breath­ing space when he net­ted their sec­ond with a cool one-on-one fin­ish but four min­utes later the hosts found their lead cut to a sin­gle strike once more when Grey­stones pulled one back through their striker.

There was to be no late come­back from Grey­stones how­ever as O’Sul­li­van scored his sec­ond of the match with a fine in­di­vid­ual ef­fort to wrap up the win.

Wick­low Rovers: Si­mon Alexan­der, Stephen Earls, John McAl­ree, Paul New­some, Paul Alexan­der, Mark O’Sul­li­van, Shane Cassidy, Paul O’Neill, Luke Byrne, Greg Dunne, David O’Sul­li­van. Subs: Thomas Smullen, David Hen­nebry, Jim Fo­ley.
