Senior Hurling Semi-Final
Bray Emmets v St We stepped into our forth county final in four years after beating St Pats of Wicklow last Sunday in Aughrim.
There was very little between the teams in the first half with Pats going into the break with a one- point lead, 1.8 to 10. Diarmuid Masterson opened the scoring for us with a point after Wicklow had put two quick points on the board, Christy levelled with a free, Andy O’Brien put Pats back in front with a great score from the side line, Christy replied with four points, three frees and one from play to give us a three- point cushion 6 to 3.
Our half backs began to get a grip, and Enda Forde, Cian O’Byrne and Mikey were working hard. A long ball in to the Bray goal wasn’t dealt with and after a scramble Stephen Morris tapped in the easiest of goals to the Bray net, Georgie O’Brien fired over a quick point and Pats were back in front, Christy converted three more frees and Mikey a point from play. Andy O’Brien also converted three free’s , Hendo, Peter Walsh and Enda all guilty of giving away handy frees. St Pats scored the first point of the second half and certainly were not going to roll over for Bray to achieve their three in a row.
Paudge Doyle was introduced for Mark Lennon and Bray moved into a small purple patch scoring 1.4 without reply, Christy Moorehouse who was outstanding on the day scored three more free’s a fantastic goal and another point from play. Wicklow now five points down needed to step up and almost immediately Andy O’Brien fired in a great goal, followed by a twenty- one yard free which he tapped over and we are back to a one point game.
It was from this point on that Bray took over, Paulie Cuiningham had come on for Eoin McCormack and immediately scored a point and set up Aran Murphy for another. Diarmuid Masterson scored his second and Mikey Lee who had being moved to mid-field was winning all the puck outs and clearing up a lot of loose ball. Paudge Doyle got on the score board then with a point and pretty soon after, he fired home his trade mark goal giving Eoghan Mahony no chance in the Pats goal. Bray were in control now and John Hendo, Luke Maloney and Daire Lohan all of whom had younger brothers on the under 16 winning team in the match beforehand were in cruise control, no way back for Pats this time, Ben McCormack made his championship debut and straight away was fouled, for Christy to tap over.
We ran out winners 2.20 to 2.12 and into our fourth final in four years and the three in a row still on track. Christy finished with 1.14, a truly remarkable performance, Peter O’Reilly made up for an error in the first half and made some fine saves and Peter Walsh was having one of his better games.
Serious work needed now for the final with Carnew, we need everyone training for the next two weeks, start this Wednesday at home v Na Fianna, thanks for the huge support in Aughrim, and hope you will all make it to Wicklow next Saturday 3.30 for the intermediate semi-final.
Team: Peter O’Reilly, Daire Lohan, Peter Kieley, Luke Maloney, Aran Murphy(1), John Henderson, Peter Walsh, Enda Forde, Mark Lennon, Cian O’Byrne, Eoin McCormack, Diarmuid Masterson(2), Christy Moorehouse(1.14), Mikey Lee(1), Cathal O’Dualachain, Padraig Doyle(1.1), Paul Cuiningham(1), Ben McCormack, Ronan Ciningham, Conor McNally, Karl Lacey, Philip Collins, Sean Maloney, Darragh Henderson(injured)and Liam Kenny.
U14 Hurling League Division 5
Whitehall Colmcille 8-12 Bray Emmets 5-3
The U-14 hurlers finished the league campaign last Saturday in Whitehall. On a lovely morning for hurling , but again without many first choice players, the hurlers struggled against a Whitehall side that have romped through the league thus far. Despite some outstanding individual performances, Aaron at full back, Adam and Daniel F at half back and Ben and Sam at midfield, Emmets struggled to contain Whitehall, and with the concession of a brace of soft goals went into the break trailing 4-4 to 1-1, Ben and Sam with a point and a goal respectively. Sam had a storming second half and scored 3-2, Tadhg, Adam, Aaron and Rian fought for everything and Ben and Fionn swapped places in goal. Andrew scored a further goal for Bray, but Whitehall found space and added too many further scores and emerged comfortable winners. This was a gutsy and determined performance by the team but with so many absences found themselves with too much to do.
Team: Fionn, Aaron, Eoin, Tadhg, Adam, Daniel F, Sam, Ben, Brian, Rian, Andrew, Conor, Daniel M.
