Two red cards in cup defeat

Tim ChannonFirst Team

THE Seagulls conceded four goals and had two players sent off as a disastrous season came to a dismal end with a 4-1 defeat at Marine in the Doodson League Cup semi-final.

Antonie Boland late in the first half and Jordan Harper late in the second were both given straight red cards for violent conduct as the Bay finished the game with nine men.

Both players face being fined by the club.

Marine were in front after just 12 minutes with a header from a corner by Sean Hessey and added a second on 33 minutes when James Foley’s shot on the run beat the diving Andy Farrimond inside his right hand post.

Farrimond made a couple of good saves but was beaten again on 42 minutes when a quickly taken free kick sent Andy Owens clear to score.

Boland was sent off in an off the ball altercation following the award off the free kick as the referee allowed play to continue for Owens to score.

Alan Burton headed Marine’s fourth on 54 minutes from another corner, but  Bay’s ten me defended stoutly, with Jordan Fagbola able to come on at half-time after being delayed in traffic, and after Cory Williams had a goal ruled out for offside, they pulled a goal back on 80 minutes when Jack Kelleher’s shot on the run went in off a post for his tenth goal for the club.

Substitute Harper’s dismissal came shortly afterwards during a scramble in the Marine area.
