Headache for WDFL as match aban­doned

Bray People - - SPORT -

THE WDFL has been once again been served a headache after yet another match was aban­doned in the Wick­low League.

The lat­est fix­ture to cause the WDFL com­mit­tee a headache was the meet­ing of Glen­cor­mac United and Carnew United A at Ry­der’s Field. The hosts lead 3-0 at the break and it got even worse for the vis­i­tors in the sec­ond pe­riod.

On 70 min­utes, they were re­duced to ten men after one of their play­ers re­ceived a yel­low card for a bad tackle and a sec­ond one for dis­sent.

A sec­ond red card was pro- duced for a hor­ror tackle and then on 85 min­utes, the Carnew side was re­duced to eight men for another hor­ror chal­lenge and it was at this point that they walked off the field of play, leav­ing ref­eree David Earls with no op­tion other than to aban­don the tie.

The Glens were cruis­ing by the break thanks to a dou­ble from Gavin Bar­ton on his sec­ond ap­pear­ance for the club, one of which came from the spot.

A bul­let header from Bob O’Don­nell ac­counted for the Kil­macanogue side’s other ef­fort.

Carnew United had pulled a goal back after the in­ter­val but then they ex­ited the pitch in protest after be­ing re­duced to eight men with five min­utes to play.

The other Glens of Di­vi­sion 2A didn’t fare quite so well on Sun­day. De­spite tak­ing a first half lead through Stephen Kir­wan against New­town United B, the Bray club fin­ished on the wrong end of a 1-4 score­line. Dil­lon Keenan lev­elled for the Mag­pies, Stephen David gave them the lead and then Luke Martin wrapped up the three points with a dou­ble for the Matt Kelly Memo­rial crowd.

Those re­sults see Glen­cor­mac re­main at the bot­tom of the pile, de­spite their first vic­tory.

The three points for New­town lift them to third spot.
