Kelly makes sure Bohemians progress


Jamie Moore

The goals have been flying in at Dalymount Park recently, and having shared six with Wexford Youths on Friday night, Bohemians scored three more in the EA Sports Cup to beat Longford Town 3-1.

Peter McGlynn's own goal put Bohs in front after three minutes before David O'Sullivan equalised almost immediately.

Lorcan Fitzgerald created the second-half goals for Derek Prendergast and Jake Kelly to help Keith Long's team to victory.

Bray Wanderers won for the first time this season, as goals from Mark Salmon and Andrew Lewis either side of half-time were enough to beat First Division UCD.

Salmon scored in first-half injury time after Jason Marks' excellent pass, and Lewis netted when he intercepted a back-header.

First Division runaway leaders Limerick have now scored ten goals against Cobh Ramblers in just four days.

Having hammered Stephen Henderson's team 6-1 in the league on Saturday night, they got four more at St Colman's Park last night in a 4-2 win.

A John O'Flynn double and strikes from Robbie Williams and Stephen Kenny eased Martin Russell's team into the next round. Two late goals by Cobh's Markus Gustavsson were just consolations.

And Ethan Boyle's goal in the 23rd minute saw Finn Harps beat non-league Cockhill Celtic 1-0 in Ballybofey.
