Waterford FC fall in first home game of season to Bohs’ quick-fire double
A quick one-two on the stroke of half time did it for Waterford FC last night in front of a excited crowd at the RSC.
Bohemians went back to Dublin with all three points in the bag. A crazy, if unfortunate, set of events gifting the Gypsies the spoils in what were horrendous conditions for any type of game.
Up until the the 42nd minute it was nip and tuck, Bohs starting brighter and Blues keeper was certainly the busier for the first 25 minutes making two decent saves.
Robbie McCourt then found his way into the game setting up two good chances, one screaming for someone in the box just to tap it in.
Then disaster. On 42 minutes a great cross in from Bohs Kris Twardek saw Sam Bone heading into his own net from six-yards.
Time for the Blues to regather and get into the dressing room and take a break from the testing conditions, but worse was to come.
Just three minutes later Bohs were awarded a penalty which Danny Mandrolu was awarded and he duly tucked away. The Dublin side up by two at half time.
Try as the Blues may in the second half, they could not find their way back into the game for the close to 2,500 hardy souls in attendance. Lessons on focus will be learned, and will need to be learned quick.
Up next, Shamrock Rovers at the RSC at 7pm on Monday.
