U15 Match Report – Cabinteely FC 2 Bray Wanderers 2

  • A fine second half comeback saw Cabinteely earn a Shield Group A point in a fantastic East Coast Derby against Bray Wanderers.
    The Seagulls led 1-0 at Stradbrook at half time in the U15 EA Sports National Underage League. Then went 2-1 ahead after the interval.
    But Cabo substitute Darragh Harris came off the bench to score twice in the end-to-end draw.
    It was the home team’s third straight draw in the section as they remained unbeaten in the Shield.
    Played as a curtain raiser to the Shauna Kavanagh Foundation charity day, the Seagulls took a tenth minute lead when Paddy Kildee-Doolan bundled the ball over the line following a corner.
    But the hosts levelled seven minutes into the second period. Harris disposed a Wanderers player. Then played a one-two with Michael Gnutek before Harris angled a low left footed shot across goal to the far-right corner of the net from 16-yards.
    To their credit, Bray restored their advantage in style. A sweeping team-move ended in a slide-rule pass setting up Roy Lawlor to apply a low first time placed close range finish.
    However, the home outfit hit back to equalise with five minutes of normal time remaining. Gnutek was adjudged to have been bundled over in the box with a penalty awarded.
    Harris took the spot-kick but his effort was saved by Wanderers reserve custodian Joe Collins. Harris reacted though to force the rebound in.
    The result means Bray top the Group A. Cabinteely are currently second on three points. They have a two-point cushion ahead of Dundalk, Drogheda United and Cavan/Monaghan who have one game in hand.
    Victory for Cabo away to Cavan/Monaghan at Gortakeegan on Sunday October 10 could be enough to secure the runners-up place.
