CLARKE KEEPS BRAY AT BAY..

Irish Daily Mirror - - SPORT -

Bray 1 Lim­er­ick 1 BY PAUL DOWL­ING BREN­DAN CLARKE de­nied Bray a much­needed shot in the arm with a stun­ning sec­ond half penalty save. In the week when the FAI launched a probe into al­leged match-fix­ing at the Wick­low club, the sec­ond small­est crowd of the sea­son (481) turned up at the Carlisle Grounds last night. Gary Mccabe was felled by Barry Cot­ter in the 72nd minute and picked him­self up to take the penalty. But Clarke dived to his left to push the ball onto the post and wide to deny the mid­fielder. Against the run of play, the Seag­ulls had taken a 38th minute lead when full-back Keith Buckley whipped in an invit­ing cross and Daragh Noone pow­ered a header home. There was an ex­plo­sive start to the sec­ond pe­riod. When a Bray cor­ner-kick was cleared, Lim­er­ick made it 1-1 with a su­perb break­away ef­fort by Chiedozie Og­bene. The 20-year-old beat Karl Moore for pace down the right chan­nel, evaded both Conor Kenna and Tim Clancy, then drilled in low from 15 yards.
