Another performance loaded with grit ensured Galway United left the Carlisle Grounds armed with the full complement of spoils.

Three second half goals from David Hurley and substitutes Stephen Walsh and Shane Doherty delighted the travelling support.

A tight opening period unfolded at the seaside venue, but United took the lead shortly after the restart.

Hurley, effective throughout, converted a penalty to steer United ahead.

Walsh added a second goal for United in the 67th minute with an assured finish.

Bray, though, trimmed the deficit as Hugh Douglas made a firm headed connection with Kurtis Byrne's inviting free kick.

Suddenly Bray were posing questions, but Diego Portilla and Killian Brouder, who impressed, found the required answers.

In stoppage time Walsh released Doherty, who sealed the deal with the insurance strike.

With seven points accumulated from three fixtures, Caulfield's charges now face Treaty United at Eamonn Deacy Park on Monday.
