Bray youngsters to contest two Semis


Bray Wanderers will take part in the Semi-Finals of at least two Under-age Cups this year.

The U19s came through their quarter-final in the Enda McGuill Cup this past weekend in a game of two halves against Dundalk. The first period was a goal-fest, ending 4-2 to the hosts at the break, Lewis Jacobs, Thomas Morgan (2) and Daniel Chukwu all finding the target. The second was a famine, though the away side came close six minutes into time added.

The other quarter-finals ended:
Shelbourne 3-1 St Patricks Athletic
Galway United 6-2 Cobh Ramblers
Shamrock Rovers 2-1 Sligo Rovers

Meanwhile, Bray's U15s also qualified for the penultimate stage of their knockout competition, the Michael Hayes Cup, with a 2-1 victory over Shelbourne. They opened the scoring almost direct from the kick-off, Billy O'Neill firing home inside ten seconds. Cristiano Bramley doubled their advantage six minutes into the final third (games at this level are played in 20-minute thirds), and Shels' Finn Sherlock bundled the ball into the Bray net for a consolation deep in injury time.

The other quarter-finals ended:
Sligo Rovers 1-3 Bohemians
Waterford 0-2 St Patricks Athletic
Shamrock Rovers 4-1 Cobh Ramblers

And at Under-14 level, the Seagulls qualified earlier this month for the quarter-finals of the Eddie Wallace Cup by beating Drogheda by a single goal, Daniel Oluwadara Olusola the scorer, in the middle period.
