Leinster Hurling Championship: Bray vs Castletown from Laois, 2pm, Saturday 5th, 2pm, Bray Emmets
With a big pitch and strong breeze it was unclear if an eight point lead would be enough. However Bray were quickly out of the traps in the second half scoring a goal almost straight from the throw in to give the team a bit of a cushion. Playing into the wind meant the hard running Evan Barry, Ben Robinson and Sam Kearney were on the ball more and with spaces opening up Bray scored a number of goals. An Tochar however kept rallying and with the ever sharp Gordon Brady keeping the scoreboard ticking over for An Tochar Bray were never really pull away. The back line now were under more pressure but the ever reliable Jamie Ryan, Michael McCarthy, Luan Roddy, Tadhg McCarthy and Aaron O’Rourke kept the An Tochar attacks at bay ensuring Ben O’Gorman (who like Sam had being part of the victorious Under Sixteen hurling team a couple of weeks previously) was not a lot of pressure. The introduction of Nathan Prunty and Oscar Harty brought further threat upfront for Bray who eventually ran out 6:6 to 1:11 winners for a great double for the club on the day.
This was a great effort by the squad in a very competitive division, everyone played their part with a number of players injured for the final being instrumental in getting the team there. Special thanks to all the parents and under 16 squad who stayed for the game, their support was really appreciated by the team. The squad would also like to thank members of the victorious Senior team who made time after their own victory to come over to provide words of encouragement before the game.
