O’Connor wins it for Wanderers

Bray Wanderers recorded their third win of the season when goals in each half by Jason Byrne and Danny O’Connor gave them a narrow victory over Bohemians in a tense clash at the Carlisle Grounds last night.

The Seagulls had their noses in front on 16 minutes when a long clearance by Kevin Knight allowed veteran striker Byrne to outpace Evan Millan on the left and then fire in a brilliant angled shot past keeper Craig Sexton.

The visitors were level on the half-hour when Keith Ward collected a weak clearance from the Bray defence and crossed for Dinny Corcoran to head home.

Bohemians looked the more dominant side in the early stages of the second-half but it was Bray who regained the lead on the hour. Jason Byrne and John Mulroy combining for O’Connor to head home.

BRAY WANDERERS: Quigley; Webster, O’Connor, Sweeney, Knight; Hanlon (Houston 77), Zambra, Waters (Kelty 83), Massey, Mulroy, J.Byrne.

BOHEMIANS: Sexton, Heary (Pender 35), McMillan, Feely, L.Byrne; Ward, McMahon (Wilson 79), Martin (Moore 68), Buckley, Traynor; Corcoran.

Referee: Neil Doyle (Dublin).
