Match Reports

 

Minor hurling

Lucan Sarsfields 2-12 Bray 1-12

The Bray minor hurling team got there Dublin campaign off the mark on Sunday in a dour and mucky Arthur Griffith Park against Lucan Sarsfields. The Lucan outfit had laboured there wears in Division 1 since U12 and to everyone’s surprise found themselves in Division 2 this year.

The game was somewhat hampered by the poor underfoot conditions and persistent drizzle which fell relentlessly for most of the game. However, to the credit of both teams a lot of hard skillful hurling was produced which added to a good spectacle for a mid-February match. Both side were even at the break through a combination of fine marksmanship and free taking.

The second half was a rip-roaring one for Bray who eased into a 6 point lead only to be pegged back by a fine Lucan goal and a combination of points from needless frees. With two minutes to go a speculative high ball into the Bray goal mouth produced a deflection to the net which ended the contest. The final score line of 1:12 to 2:12 was somewhat disrespectful to Bray in that a draw would have been the fairest result – but we have won games with similar good fortune and these results even themselves out over the course of a season.

This was one of the fines displays to be produced by this team in terms of the opposition, weather and pitch conditions and the fact that we were missing 5 starters from key positions across the team.

If this performance heralds what can be anticipated from the year to come we are in for a cracking season.

Team: Tony Jackson, Joe Phelan, Sean Mc Donagh, Ben Kearney, Michael Timmins, Mac Dara O Midheach, Sid Hunt, Ronan Mc Mahon, Davy Maloney, Ciaran Mc Kay, Conor Hardiman, James Anders, Andrew Conway, Rory Mulcahy, Tadgh Mc Carthy.
