First up were An Tochar, Aibhe made sure the ball stayed away from her net, while Cara battled away wherever she could for the Bray effort, Olivia made some great runs forward which helped contribute to a Bray victory. The second match played on another pitch against the first of two St. Pat’s teams, Kaleigh kept herself busy, ensuring that Bray attacked the St. Pat’s goal, Amy made several skilful pickups, Martha made several interceptions and Roisin tackled well in midfield. At the final whistle the scores were level. The third and final match was against another strong St Pat’s team, Ellen O’D was tasked with marking the St Pat’s star player which she did with determination and to great effect, Ellen W made some great runs and Eimear’s passing ensured Bray kept possession of the ball, a cruel last second goal to St. Pats levelled the scores and denied Bray a deserved victory.

Under 13 Football
Bray Emmets 8-16 Eire Og 8-14
On Friday night the Under 13 boys welcomed Eire Og to Bray for a football match. Eire Og got off to a great start and were several scores ahead before Bray began to get in to the match. The Bray lads who were only playing together for their third match of the season did not let their heads drop and after a slow first five minutes started to play well as a team. Davy, Gavin and Conrad began to dominate their areas well and Sean took some physical knocks for the team. Ben and Andrew scored some vital goals between them to leave Bray only one point adrift at the break. At the beginning of the second half Conor D had to leave the field for some first aid, this strengthened Eire Og’s resolve as they pulled several scores in front, Conor D re-entered the pitch after 5 minutes and this in turn strengthened Bray’s resolve. A determined duo of Rory and Oisin at the back kept the Eire Og’s scores to a minimum with Stephen, David and Conor H at the other end showing some neat passing and accurate shooting to accrue several goals and points between them. At the final whistle the resolute determination of the Bray lads had turned a healthy Eire Og lead into a 2 point victory for Bray Emmets. Well done lads.
Andrew Crocker(2-0), Ben Murphy(1-0), Conor Dowling(0-3), Conor Hardiman(1-2), Conrad Ruddy(0-3), David Martin(2-1), Davy Maloney(2-1), Gavin Henderson(0-1),Oisin Hayde, Rory Whelan, Sean McDonagh, Stephen Reynolds(0-3)
