BBK edge closer to glory

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

BBK UNITED edged closer to pos­si­ble Divi­sion 1 glory on Sun­day af­ter­noon.

Ry­der's Field was their des­ti­na­tion for their clash with fifth placed Glen­cor­mac United and the Brit­tas Park out­fit dis­patched of their hosts with rel­a­tive ease.

The vis­i­tors went ahead af­ter 20 min­utes and added a sec­ond mid­way through the sec­ond half be­fore seal­ing the win that sent them to the top of the ta­ble in the fi­nal minute.

Wil­lie Sin­nott notched two of those ef­forts for BBK, with Philip Doyle land­ing the other.

That de­feat makes a Char­lie Bishop Cup spot a slightly more dis­tant dream for the Kil­macanogue side, but for the ma­jor­ity of the other clubs in Wick­low's sec­ond tier, sim­ply avoid­ing rel­e­ga­tion is their top pri­or­ity.

And St. Pa­trick's and Wolfe Tone Celtic took large strides to­wards achiev­ing that aim with wins on Sun­day.

St. Pa­trick's fell be­hind early in the sec­ond half to Aughrim Rangers but reign­ing WDL Player of the Year Johnny Arthur showed his class as he sunk an ef­fort in the 60th minute to level mat­ters be­fore pop­ping up with the win­ner in the fi­nal ten min­utes.

Else­where, at Finn Park, a lone Stu­art Pur­cell strike proved enough to earn Wolfe Tone Celtic a pre­cious vic­tory over St. An­thony's.
