Finn Harps Under-19s won for the third game on the trot at the weekend as Keenan Diver’s volley was enough for victory in Dublin.
Bohemians 0 Finn Harps 1
The win over the Gypsies moves Harps level in third with Bohs and on the coat-tails of the leaders, Dundalk, and second-placed Shelbourne.
Following wins over Athlone Town and Drogheda United in their previous two outings, Harps were up against it in the capital.
Midway through the second-half, centre-back Diver connected with a corner kick and sent a brilliant volley to the net past Jamie Cleary, the Bohs ‘keeper.
In front of the watching Bohemians senior manager Keith Long – whose team overcame Harps in Ballybofey the previous night – Harps defended superbly for the remainder and keeper Joe Boyle had a relatively trouble-free evening at the office.
Harps included in their midfield Stephen Doherty, who played for the first team the night before and they earned the win with Daragh Elison, the 2018 U17 Player of the Year, absent from the starting line-up.
