Carnew v Bray Emmets
Carnew suffered a comprehensive defeat at the hands of a very fit and skilful Bray Emmets on Saturday 29th August in Pearse Park, Arklow. Bray Emmets got off to a blistering start and after 15 minutes had a substantial lead up on the scoreboard. Carnew struggled to get the ball up to the full forward line and when they did Bray Emmets full back line were too strong to allow Carnew in for any scores.
Bray scored 24 points from play from at least 35 yards out and when a few more attempts dropped under the crossbar of the Carnew goal Carnew’s heads dropped as well. From there on there was only going to be one result. Carnew got two consolation goals to finish off a very disappointing match. Carnew, who took to the field without some of the panel who were absent, called on the under 10 panel to fulfill this fixture with Cillian Doyle and Jack Keogh who tried hard.  Carnew with a full panel are capable of a much better performance than was seen on the day and mentors would appeal to parents to get their young lads out onto the playing field.
The season is coming to an end and we would all like to have something to celebrate to keep up the strong GAA tradition that is Carnew Emmets.
