Corcoran on target to seal back-to-back victories for Bohs
Limerick 0 Bohemians 1
LIMERICK FC were let to rue missed chances after Dinny Corcoran’s smash and grab secured all three points for Bohemians at the Markets Field.
The Bohs striker drove high into the net from a Keith Ward cut back four minutes after the interval after the Limerick defence left a hopeful pass drift behind them.
Limerick’s response was almost immediate, with Brazilian striker Rodrigo Tosi seeing his header stopped by Shane Supple.
The visitors had the better of the opening exchanges, but Limerick nearly went in front six minutes in after Ian Turner drove a Chiedozie Ogbene cross inches over from inside the area.
At the other end, James Doyle almost got a toe to a Ward cross close in, and Corcoran drove wide when one-on-one with keeper Freddy Hall. Some more trickery from Ogbene on the left set up Lee-J-Lynch, but he fired straight at Supple.
Limerick pressed forward but the closest they came in the final quarter was from Duggan, whose point-blank effort was bravely saved by Supple who claimed the man of the match award.
