Carnew notes week May 23

U12 Hurling Division 1
 Carnew 3-7                      Bray Emmets 2-3
 Carnew had a comfortable victory over well fancied Bray Emmets when they met on Monday 16th May at the Centre of Excellence in Ballinakill. Bray Emmets were first on the scoreboard and were leading by two goals and a point after 15 minutes. However, when man of the match ‘Dan the Man’ Redmond got into gear and found the back of the net in the eighteenth minute, Carnew got a new lease of life and started to hurl with conviction.

Ben Gilligan, better known as ‘The Paocher’ at full forward got in another goal before half time. Dan Redmond shot over some excellent frees and left the scoreboard level at 2-3 all at half time.

Carnew came out in the second half in the belief that the game was theirs for the taking. When Sean Kenny shot to the back of the net early in the second half Carnew never looked back. Dan Redmond kept the scoreboard ticking over again with his great frees. Jack Deegan in goal, Billy Molloy and Dan Murphy in the backline along with Jack Keogh and Jack Brownrigg kept Bray Emmets scoreless in the second half. Dan Redmond, Richard Greene and Shane Byrne were effective in the middle of the field while up front Cillian Doyle, the Kenny brothers Sean and Brian and Ben Gilligan kept up the pressure to hold out for a seven point victory. This was a great result for the lads and a very strong performance from a team who were missing Maurice Sheil and Will Molloy through injury.
