Stokes strike puts gloss on Bohs win

The Irish Times - Sports Weekend - - SOCCER -

Eoghan Stokes came off the bench to score a stun­ning goal to put the gloss on vic­tory for Bo­hemi­ans at the Carlisle Grounds.

Their first back-to-back league wins of the sea­son moves Keith Long’s side six points clear of the rel­e­ga­tion play­off place as Bray re­main six adrift at the bot­tom.

Bo­hemi­ans were ahead on af­ter six-min­utes when Dinny Cor­co­ran got in be­hind onto Keith Ward’s dinked through ball to poke past Evan Mo­ran. The visi­tors dou­bled their lead on 32 min­utes. Cap­tain Shane Sup­ple’s goal kick was helped on to Ward who scored with a de­light­ful lob. Bray pulled a goal back in stop­page time from a Gary McCabe penalty fol­low­ing a foul by Sup­ple on Ro­nan Cough­lan. Sub­sti­tute Stokes then struck to seal the visi­tors’ win on 74 min­utes.
