UCD 0 Bohemians 2

UCD 0 Bohemians 2

Ageless captain Owen Heary led by example to steer Bohemians to victory at the UCD Bowl.

The win leaves Pat Fenlon's Gypsies just two points behind leaders and arch-rivals Shamrock Rovers who visit Dalymount in the big Dublin derby next week.

Heary put some substance to Bohs' dominant first half display by heading home Killian Brennan's corner for the lead goal in first half stoppage time.

Striker Anto Flood added the second goal 10 minutes form the end when punishing a mistake by College defender Yael Haro to run on and shoot past Ger Barron.
