Seaview ad­vance to next round

Bray People - - SPORT -

SEAVIEW WAN­DER­ERS com­pre­hen­sively booked their place in the sec­ond round of the Thomas Scott Cup at the ex­pense of East Coast Al­bion af­ter an im­pres­sive 1-4 win at Bal­ly­waltrim on Sun­day.

The first half of the match won’t last long in the mem­ory, with both teams very waste­ful in front of goal. But the vis­i­tors took a two-goal lead in at the break as they squeezed in two goals near the end of the first pe­riod; Philip Or­monde lead the way for his team and Iain O’ Byrne landed the sec­ond.

East Coast Al­bion pulled one back in the sec­ond half with Bobby Mes­sitt scor­ing for the Bray side. How­ever, their hopes of forc­ing ex­tra-time were scup­pered when Or­monde swooped to grab his sec­ond of the af­ter­noon for the Ark­low side.

The Ea­gles didn’t lose face though and con­tin­ued to battle in the clos­ing stages, but vic­tory be­longed to Seaview and the game was over when Mark O’Re­gan sealed the deal for his side, ham­mer­ing the fi­nal nail into Al­bion’s cof­fin when he net­ted the last goal of the match.

Bal­ly­waltrim's Stephen Tem­ple clears the ball from the box dur­ing the league match against Fas­saroe at Bal­ly­waltrim.
