The Senior Hurlers start their championship campaign against Avondale on Saturday 23rd June at 4.30pm in Aughrim. The junior footballers are away to Kilmac on Tuesday the 19th and the junior hurlers are home to Glenealy on Wednesday 20th.
The under 12 hurlers played Thomas Davis on Friday evening at Old Conna. The rain had eased off for the 6.45pm start and the under 12’s performed well, given the conditions, to win the game on a score line of 4-6 to 2-2. On Saturday the u11 hurlers were in action against Raheny (match report below) whilst on Sunday afternoon the girls under 12 footballers put in a tremendous performance against St Patricks of Wicklow town and were unlucky to lose the game.
Junior Hurlers: The junior hurlers made the long journey down to Kiltegan Wednesday night. Bray were missing some key spinal players through exams and injury yet gave a full-effort nevertheless. Some early breaks in play landed a point for Brian Lambe. The high point of the half was an excellent groundstroke from the lively Cathal Ó Dúlacháin finding its way into the Kiltegan netting.
At midfield, Ryan Tynan and in the half-back line Jordan Lee and Billy Brazil stood out. In the second-half, young Shane Anders showed his quality along with the ever-green John Ward and his ‘ C’mon, encourage eachother’ mantra. Kiltegan had the better of the second-half, having the fitness and player pedigree on the men from Brí Chualann. Táimid ag imirt in aghaidh Ghleann Fhaidhle sa chéad chluiche eile i bPáirc Emmet Bhré. Kiltegan 3 – 10, Emmet Bhré 2 – 1.
Under 12 Footballers: Two teams travelled to Blessington on Monday evening, the blue and the green team, the match reports are detailed below.
This was a perfect night for good Football and true to form that was exactly what this capable and generous unit delivered. Bray led from the opening moments on this victorious occasion. Andrew Conway and Conor Dowling sent plentiful supplies into Lochlann Dougan, James Anders and Rory Lambe who gratefully converted. Ciarán McKay and Ronan McMahon defended stoutly while Patrick Emms also made a fine contribution to the evening. Young player Seán McDonagh also flew the flag in his respective role. Bhí na bainisteoirí an-sásta mar cailleadh an cluiche seo anuraidh. Emmet Bhré – U12. Andrew Conway (2-3), Andrew O’Brien, Ciarán McKay, Conor Dowling (1-0), David Maloney (0-1), Gavin Henderson (2-0), James Anders (3-0), Lochlann Dougan (2-3), Michael Timmons, Patrick Emms, Ronan McMahon, Rory Lambe (1-1), Seán McDonagh (1-0).
The Green Team were also victorious on the night despite the unavailability and late withdrawal of some key players.
The team dominated possession and while the conversion rate could have been higher there were some spectacular scores. Mick O’Gara dominated the midfield area where Ben Kearney also worked tirelessly. Darragh Rochford led the attack kicking some fine points and providing pin point passes to the full forward line where Macdara Ó Midheach especially finished off in style. Sid Hunt, Mathew Dehanschutter and Jamie Baguley came into their own in defence in the second half while Conrad Ruddy gave a commanding performance in goals after putting in a solid performance in defence in the first half.
The coaches were especially happy with the teamwork displayed on the night and the way the team turned a half time 4 point deficit into a 3 point victory.
Team: Jamie Baguley, Conrad Ruddy, Matthew Dehanschutter, Sid Hunt, David Nesbitt, Mick O’Gara (2-1), Ben Kearney (1-1), Darragh Rochford (1-4), Sean Byrne, Ben Connolly (0-1), Macdara Ó Midheach ( 3-2 ), Conor Hardiman, David Martin.
Under 11 Hurlers: On Saturday morning Bray under 11 hurlers welcomed top of the table Raheny to Emmet Park. The lads from Bray started very well with Rory having his sights focused accurately between the posts. Bray led at half time 2-8 to 2-3 but the second half demonstrated why Raheny are top of the league, scoring 4 goals, to just ease past Bray for a final score of Bray 2-11 Raheny 6-4. Bray did not give up and played as best they could until the final whistle to conclude a largely successful, first-part of our league season in Dublin.
Emmet Bhré U11: Rian Knox, Oisín Drury (0-1), Seán McDonagh, Michael Timmons, Gavin Henderson, Davy Maloney (0-3), Rory Lambe (2-7), Conor Hardiman, Aaron Graham, Stephen Reynolds.
