BOHEMIANS, who hadn’t scored in their previous seven matches, finally ended their goal-famine as strikes by Paddy Kavanagh and Mark Quigley earned them victory over Galway United at Dalymount Park in the FAI Cup second round.

Kavanagh, who was one of three Gypsies’ players to limp off injured, struck after ten minutes, smashing a low shot beyond Conor Winn from man of the match Ayman Ben Mohamed’s cross.

Ben Mohamed, who received an international call-up from  Tunisia on Thursday, was also involved in their second goal ten minutes after the break.

The talented winger sprinted clear on a counter- attack before being fouled and Keith Long’s team scored their second goal from the resulting free kick with  a move straight off the training ground.

Mark Quigley’s low ball found Eoin Wearen on the edge of box. His one-touch pass sent Ben Mohamed through and he was dragged down by Gary Shanahan, the result being a penalty and a yellow card.

Quigley stepped up to smash the spot0kick into the top corner to give Bohs breathing space.

Bohemians - Delany; Hayes, Mulchay, D Byrne, Pender (Best, 55); P Kavanagh (Buckley, 28), Wearen, Lopes, Ben Mohamed; Kelly (Quigley, 44), Akinade.

Galway United - Winn; Horgan, Aganovic, Cantwell (Devers, 85), Ludden; Sullivan, Byrne; Shanahan, Foley (Melody, 56), Devaney (Keating, 46); Faherty
