Mahon rescues point for Students

UCD 2 Bray Wanderers 2

Alan Mahon shot home an 84th minute penalty to earn UCD a deserved point tonight.

Derek Foran pulled down Shane Fitzgerald on 84 minutes and Mahon calmly sent Alan Gough the wrong way from the spot.

Having come close through Ronan Finn, Alan McNally and Timmy Purcell, UCD deserved their 37th minute lead when Pat McWalter headed home Ian Bermingham's free-kick.

Bray were much better in the second half and levelled on the hour when Kevin Doherty flicked on Alan Cawley's corner for Foran to shoot home at the back post.

Gavin Whelan then headed them in front from another Cawley corner on 77 minutes.
