At half time we looked to be in trouble down 7 points to 3 and despite conceding another point immediately after the break, our boys stepped it up a gear, Liam Kenny, the autocrat up front made all the play setting up scores all around him, Jackie Moorehouse firing 2.1, Eoin Mason 1.1, Mike 7 points from play and frees, Willie Nolan & Michael Walsh a point each. This was a great overall performance in what could only be described as arctic conditions.

Senior Football Match Report V Eire Óg. Bray 1-13 Eire Óg 1-5
Last Tuesday evening the senior footballers played host to near neighbours Eire Óg in round 6 of the league (div.1). Bray were determined to bounce back from a poor display in their last outing in Tinahely and started well with a fantastic effort by Ronan Cunningham who put the ball over the bar from a sideline ball 40 yards out after 3 minutes. Eire Óg answered with a point and a goal before Bray lost a player receiving a red card. Eire Óg took two more points to lead by 4 before Bray got themselves organised and started to take the game to Eire Óg. But after 25 minutes Bray received another blow when full forward Rory Breslin injured his ankle and was replaced by Des Kelly (jr) who had a very strong game. But despite both of these setbacks Bray worked tirelessly for each other. Then 8 minutes before half time Stephen McNicholas slotted over two points with Adam Conway added another, all from frees, to leave to score at Bray 0-4 to Eire Óg 1-3.
The second half was dominated by Bray, who were very strong in defence in every position and only allowed Eire Óg add two points to their tally (the second one in the 61st minute). Ronan Cunningham and Brian O Keeffe were very much to the fore also in mid field while the forwards continued where they had left off in the first half running strongly at the opposition. Due to continued Bray pressure, strong running and very direct football Eire Óg conceded a number of frees which were punished by Stephen McNicholas who gave an exhibition of free taking by scoring another 7 points all from the ground. John Henderson added to a terrific performance again by scoring a great goal after a very clever pass from Des Kelly. Also David Finn and Adam Conway chipped in with a point each and caused endless problems in the inside line. Bray scored 1-9 in that second half and displayed tremendous character throughout the game especially after dealing with the double blow suffered in the first half. Eire Óg fought hard right to the end but also lost a key midfielder to injury in the first half. This result puts bray back into second position in the county league.

The team made a good start to the game with a point from Ray Lamb and a goal scored by Garrett Crowley which was set up by John Walsh. Rathnew replied with some well taken points and they scored a goal just before half time which left them leading by 1.04 to 1.02. Bray went four points down after 15 minutes of the second half but the team rallied with points from Des Kelly and Ross Mc Anaspie.

Junior A Football: Bray Emmets 1-11 Newcastle 1-05
Our Junior A team got back to winning ways last Tuesday night with a deserved victory over visitors Newcastle. After a slow start Bray gradually gained control at centre field through the efforts of Ray Lambe and Des Kelly. With well taken scores from John Walsh, Eoin Mc Mahon, Des Kelly and Niall McCague the home side where well worth their 9 to 4 points lead at half time. A good start in the second saw Bray increase their lead and when Eoin McMahon shot to the net after a well worked move the points looked secure. However Newcastle put in a strong finish grabbing a goal and a point just before the final whistle.

Boys Hurling and Football: The u12 hurlers travelled to St Patricks of Wicklow Town and lost by 1 point. The under 16 hurlers also played on Monday and had a great win against Eire Óg beating them 0-5 to 3-6. In the Dublin Hurling leagues the u8’s played St Patrick of Palmerstown, the u11’s played away to St Vincents whilst the u10’s and u12’s travelled to Commercials Hurling club in Rathcoole. The u12’s came away with a win in a tightly fought first half but once Bray got some scores on the board there was no stopping them and they really stepped up a gear in the second half. A great team effort by all the players in this final game of the blitz section of the Dublin u12 Hurling Calendar which culminated with them winning their group. Match Reports for some of these games are below.
Girls Hurling and Football: The u12 girls were busy playing football in Baltinglass on Thursday and Camogie against Annacurra away on Friday evening where they lost by a point. The u10 Camogie girls were in action at a blitz on Sunday morning at Naomh Olafs in Sandyford.
Go Games: On Friday April 27th the Bray Emmets under 8 team travelled to Glenealy for their latest Wicklow Go Games matches. In the first match they met the home team, where both sides had a very good start, despite the wet pitch conditions. Glenealy provided a strong defence, but Bray were a very determined team and persevered with great energy for the full game. In their second match they played against Eire Óg. This proved to be a very exciting match, with plenty of goal-scoring opportunities for both sides, all-in-all a great evening of football entertainment. Team: Adam Prunty, Kayleigh Broderick, Jack Kearney, Diarmuid McCarthy, Cillian Murphy, Sean Byrne, James Byrne
Our second under 8 team faced two teams on the night! First facing Eire Óg. Jamie featuring in goals making some good puck outs! Shane and Luke defended well, moving the ball up to the well paired midfield Cian and Joshua who in turn passed the ball to our forwards Cathal and Luke Kane who worked hard up front! Overall Bray Emmets Team A worked well together with goals coming from Cathal and Cian to win the match. Team A includes: Shane Baguley, Joshua Butler, Luke Kane, Cian Longmore, Cathal Mac Maoilin, Luke Micallef and Jamie Mooney
U12 Hurlers: The u12 hurlers played their first Wicklow game against a lively and skilful St Pats Monday night. St Pats were first out of the blocks and on the scoreboard stunning Bray with some early artillery. Goalkeeper, Darragh Rochford was forced to make two or three excellent saves. Gradually Bray settled, buoyed by the defensive in-put of Sid Hunt and a goal and a point from Rory Lambe. In the second-half, a fine long-range effort was converted by Macdara Ó Midheach, while the midfield pairing of Ben Kearney and Andrew Conway worked hard sending ball into the sharp-shooting James Anders. However, this was one that escaped by a single point to a deserving Naomh Pádraig. Beidh lá eile againn le cúnamh Dé. After the game, Wicklow hurlers Andy O’Brien and Jim Connors kindly came over to give some advice and words of encouragement to the Bray squad. Go n-éirí an t-ádh leo beirt. Emmet Bhré – U12.

Bray Emmets Under 11 Hurlers vs. St. Vincents
On Saturday the Under 11s completed the last of their matches in their preliminary Dublin league at a sunny St.Vincents. The lads got stuck in from the start against a strong St. Vincents team, the first half was a tight affair Rory Lambe scoring two points from frees and Davy Maloney scoring a fine point from long range. Tight defending from Michael, Séan, Davy and Gavin and a couple of great saves from Rian in goal kept the scores from St.Vincents down and Bray were a point up at half time. During the second half, the wind and the hill favoured St.Vincents, Jamie, Conor and Rory toiled with real heart in the middle of the pitch, never giving up the challenge against very proficient players. Up front, Aaron, Daragh and Stephen gamely challenged any balls that came their way. Rory added to the score, but a 5 minute spell late in the match saw three goals scored by St.Vincents. The lads played until the final whistle and showed excellent tenacity on a day when their luck was not always present, it is matches like this when the lads learn most and develop as a team. Bray Emmets 0-4 – St. Vincents 3-7. Team: Rian Knox, Michael Timmons, Seán McDonagh, Davey Maloney (0-1), Gavin Henderson, Conor Hardiman, Rory Lambe (0-3), Jamie Baguley, Daragh McCormack, Aaron Graham and Stephen Reynolds
