A man of the match performance from Adham Masood guided Wexford FC under-17s to a comfortable win over Bray/St Joseph's U17 in Ferrycarrig Park today.

It took only 4 minutes for Wexford to take the lead. Captain Liam Berry broke down the right and delivered a deep cross in to the box that went over everyone's head. Adham Masood picked up the loose ball on the left, went past one defender, and delivered a perfect cross in to Berry who had continued his run in to the penalty area. The young forward opened his body, and side-footed past Dylan Davis in the Bray goal for a perfect start for the home side.

A thrilling first half played in beautiful sunshine, continued to offer both teams chances. First Jake Ellis had a chance to level for the visitors, after being played through by Eoin Darcy, but his shot went over the bar. Then after Adham Masood had been taken down 20 yards from goal, Caellum Travers-Devlin seen his free kick strike the post and bounce away.

With half an hour played, by far the best chance of the half for the visitors came when Eoin Darcy was played through on goal but he also seen his shot strike the inside of the woodwork and out for a goal kick.

The fist five minutes of the second half seen Bray come in to the game more. They suceeded in winning a number of corners, but the home defence stood firm. 

Just on the hour mark, the home team doubled their advantage. It was once again Masood who was involved, working tirelessly down the left. When he eventually got his low cross in along the "corridor of uncertainty", it was missed by all of the Bray defence but not by Kyle Kennedy who was making his run in to the box from the right and he finished emphatically past Davis.

The home team were unlucky to concede in the 77th minute when Bray substitute Shane Flynn cut in from the left and seen his shot at goal deflect off of the knee of a defender and loop over Michael Walsh and in to the back of the net.

Wexford made sure of all three points 9 minutes from the end when an inswinging corner from the Wexford right, taken by Masood, was headed in at the back post by Caellum Travers-Devlin.

Next up for the under-17s is a trip to Cork City next Saturday lunchtime.
