Graham Burke 4 pen, 75

Sam Bone 53

Dan Carr 83

Dave McAllister 87

Conor Kenna s/o 4


09 Jun 2018

Early concessions have been rather de rigueur in Bray's games this season, but tonight's came with an extra twist of the thumbscrew.

The influential Conor Kenna was dismissed before Graham Burke dispatched his spot-kick past Evan Moran in the fourth minute.

It was a harsh opening, and something of a tribute to the remaining 10 men that they kept the scoresheet static at 1-0 until early in the second half.

Even the second goal, scored by Sam Bone, didn't signal a rout, and it wasn't until twenty minutes later, when Burke notched a second, that the floodgates opened.

Dan Carr and Dave McAllister joined their clubmates in the scoring in the final ten minutes, but against ten men for 86 minutes, even that scoreline certainly wasn't a handsome victory.
