Mervue United 2 - 5 Wexford Youths

Sat, Sep 04 2010
Three goals in a six minute period just before half time effectively settled this game as Wexford Youths came from behind to record their first win in five games as Mervue United slumped to their eight straight defeat in the First Division at Terryland Park on Saturday evening.

Mervue had got off to the perfect start when Kevin Crehan bundled home a Mark Ludden left wing cross at the back post after Packie Holden had saved his initial effort.

It all went wrong for the home side after that though as the visitors drew level on 22 minutes. A Shane Dempsey 25 yard free-kick flew straight into the bottom corner as a badly placed Ger Hanley could only watch as he was beaten at his near post.

Wexford then added three goals in a six minute period as the home side fell apart defensively. They took the lead on 36 minutes following a great run down the right wing by Gary Sheahan and he set up Danny Furlong with a simple tap in for 2-1.

They doubled that lead three minutes later when Ben Ryan made it 3-1 with a shot from the edge of the box. A fourth soon followed as Furlong returned the favour to Sheahan setting him up for goal number four.

The home sides task was made even harder ten minutes after the break as Simon Walsh saw red after a bad challenge. They did however reduce the deficit back to two when Kevin Crehan stroked home following good work by Mark Ludden and Dan Cunningham set him up for his second goal of the night.

The best goal of the night ensured there was to be no comeback though as Gary Sheahan beat three defenders in a run from the halfway line before slotting the ball past a bemused Ger Hanley for his second of the night.
