Cork City 3 Bray 1


Super John O'Flynn put three goals past Bray Wanderers at da Cross on Friday night, taking his tally for the season to 18. It's some achievement for a 19 year-old in his first season at the club.
It was cold evening but there was plenty of Christmas cheer, especially from the Corner Boys who donned Santa outfits and had bags of fake snow to mark the occasion!
Flynny got his first after only 12 minutes when he cooly fired past John Walsh in the Bray goal. It remained 1-0 until the break but the visitors came out guns blazing early in the second half, realising that a victory was essential.

Within two minutes it was 1-1 after Barry O'Connor pounced on the rebound of Michael Devine's save. However a piece of individual brilliance from O'Flynn in the 63rd minute put City back in front. The striker flicked over a defenders head and then slid the ball under the goalie to make it 2-1. O'Flynn secured the win, and his hat-trick, in the 75th minute when he volleyed home from a Colin T O'Brien cross. Roll on "the Scum" (aka Shamrock Rovers) on Friday week!

Cork City: Devine, Carey, Daly, Murray, Horgan, Warren (CT O'Brien 65), O'Grady, Reynolds, Woods, O'Callaghan (CP O'Brien 60), O'Flynn.

Bray Wanderers: Walshe, O'Reilly, O'Hanlon (Charles 79), Doohan (Fox 83), Long, O'Connor, Gormley (Britton 46), Morgan, Forsyth, Flood, Byrne.

Referee: H Byrne (Dublin)
