East Coast ease rel­e­ga­tion fears

Bray People - - SOCCER ROUND-UP -

EAST COAST Al­bion were the big win­ners in Divi­sion 2 at the week­end as the Bray side moved four points clear of the drop zone fol­low­ing a 0-1 win over Bal­ly­waltrim FC.

Shortly af­ter the hour mark at the Bal­ly­waltrim Re­cre­ation Park on Sun­day Brian Boland drifted in from the left to slot home the only goal of the game.

Al­bion climbed above Bal­ly­waltrim as a re­sult of that vic­tory and greatly eased their rel­e­ga­tion wor­ries with just four fix­tures re­main­ing.

De­feat mean­while has left Bal­ly­waltrim glanc­ing ner­vously over their shoul­ders. They are now just a mere point above ninth placed Carnew AFC, who also tasted de­feat at the week­end.

They hosted Seaview Wan­der­ers and went down to a 55th minute David Ka­vanagh strike; the sub­sti- tute fin­ish­ing well af­ter be­ing found by Alan Hud­son.

In the pro­mo­tion race, Rath­new AFC in­creased the pres­sure on those around them as they picked up a 3-1 win over Round­wood FC at Sham­rock Park.

Man of the match Mick Nolan, Jay Devlin and David Shor­tall all net­ted for the hosts as they moved to within a point of the pro­mo­tion places.
