O'Flynn: Netted a brace

O'Flynn: Netted a brace

Exeter enjoyed their first away win in almost a year as they came from behind to beat Hartlepool 3-2 at Victoria Park.

Trailing 2-1 at the break in Saturday's League One clash, the Grecians scored two goals in 10 minutes through John O'Flynn to earn a first win on their travels since last November.

Exeter had earlier taken the lead with a classy individual effort from midfielder Ryan Harley, who skipped around Gary Liddle and Scott Flinders before firing in at the near post.

Pools pressed the visitors for a sustained period and were rewarded with two goals in as many minutes. First Ritchie Humphreys cracked in from 16 yards after picking his spot past keeper Paul Jones. Then Antony Sweeney prodded in after Jones saved a Colin Larkin header on the line.

But just three minutes into the second period, a slide-rule pass from Harley played in O'Flynn behind the static defence and he confidently drilled a low finish past Flinders. Ten minutes later the Irishman was picked out by Scott Golbourne's left-wing cross and he headed across Flinders from close range.

The nearest Pools came to a leveller was when substitute Denis Behan headed against the woodwork and the ball rolled across the face of goal.
