Wexford dent Treaty’s play-off hopes with comeback victory

The result sees Treaty remain in eighth place, as many points adrift of Wexford, who occupy the final playoff spot.

Treaty United saw their playoff hopes effectively end on Friday evening, as they fell to a 2-1 loss at home to Wexford FC.

A Ben O’Riordan goal in the 43rd minute saw the Shannonsiders go in leading at the break, although things would take a turn in the second-half.

Less than ten minutes into the second period, Lee Devitt received his marching orders following an incident in the box. Tommy Barrett’s side would have to play the remainder of the game with ten men.

The resulting penalty was saved by Corey Chambers, although twenty minutes later Wexford would level the scores.

Danny Furlong found the net from close range to bring his side to 1-1, and it wasn’t long before they had the winner.

Less than ten minutes later it was Kian Corbally who hit the back of net, his first-time effort enough to beat Chambers and take all three points.

The result sees Treaty remain in eighth place, eight points adrift of Wexford, who occupy the final playoff spot.

Next up for the Limerick outfit is a trip to Bray, as they look to get points on the board with games running out fast.
