Bohemians 0; Tramore 4
Tramore struck four goals once again in Ben Wadding Park on Thursday night last. The previous week they had found the net four times against Waterford Crystal. The result moved them to the top of the league, at least until Carrick United played on Sunday morning. The outcome meant that Bohemians remain on a total of 4 points from their eight games played and they are now very much involved in a relegation battle.
Dylan Power, who came in for the injured Andrew Halligan in the Bohs’ goal, came to his side’s rescue with a decent save on 13 minutes when Francis Rockett’s right-wing cross was flicked on by Michael Caulfield into the path of Christopher Grace but his close-range header was tipped around the posts.
It was Grace that had another chance to find the breakthrough less than two minutes when he latched onto a cross from Stephen Grant, who had picked up a quick free kick from Rockett but the centre forward couldn’t keep his right-footed shot from 12 yards on target.
Joey Veale headed straight at Tramore netminder AJ Murray after a Clive Prendergast right-wing delivery for Bohs’ only chance of note on 22 minutes.
But just when it looked as if the sides would go in level at the break level, Tramore struck for the opening goal in the final minute of the half.
It was a class goal that saw Craig Maher do brilliantly well out on the left wing and when he put the ball into the danger area midfielder Michael Caulfield gave Dylan Power little chance with an exquisite header from near the penalty spot.
