Watch: Bastien Hery scores an absolute screamer to give Waterford their 2nd home win of the seasonThu, Mar 01 2018
Waterford picked up their second home win of the season on Monday evening with a 2-0 win over St. Patrick's Athletic.
After the third series of games Alan Reynold’s side sit second in the table, three points off Cork City at the summit.
Waterford broke the deadlock after 10 minutes through Kenny Browne as he rose above Kevin Toner and connected with a Paul Keegan corner to power the ball past Barry Murphy in the Pats goal.
The home side went two goals in front courtesy of a sublime finish by Bastien Hery on the hour mark. It started at the back with Kenny Browne pumping the ball up the pitch and bypassing midfield. Ian Bermingham’s attempted clearance scuffed into the air and as it dropped Hery let it bounce once and caught it perfectly with his right boot whizzing past all four Pats defenders and nestled into the bottom corner leaving Murphy with no chance in the goal.
The away side’s best chance fell to Christy Fagan well into the second half as the forward met Simon Madden’s cross with his head but it was too high and flew over the bar.
