Juvenile Games

Girls Football and Camogie: The under 14 Camogie team participated in the Dublin Feile at Portmarnock on Saturday, well done to all the girls who put in strong performances in very warm conditions. The under 10  footballers travelled to the north side to play Craobh Ciaran.

Match Reports:

U11 Boys Football: The under 11’s played in the annual Kilmacud Crokes Football tournament Sunday last. In the group stages, we defeated St Anne’s, Kilmacud and St Judes. In the final we beat Tyrrelstown – all offering tough opposition – but Bray Emmets were in flying form. From David Maloney at the back, Conor Dowling prowling midfield, to Rory Lambe prolific up front, Bray were always going to be difficult to overcome. David Martin did very well in his debut tournament, David Nesbitt in the half-forward line provided invaluable link-play and Rian Knox obligingly played Goalie/out-field when required. This was a great squad performance. Darragh McCormack accepted the winners trophy on our behalf. Buíochas mór le Brenda Maloney agus Debbie McDonagh a rinne picnic mhór do na buachaillí/tuismitheoirí ar fad.

U11 Hurlers: The under 11’s played Oliver Plunketts in the Dublin league Thursday night. This Navan Road fixture was won by the tightest and slimmest of margins. Many players gave hugely for this victory to become a reality; among them were Jamie Baguley, David Maloney and Michael Timmons. A last gasp (1-1) from an outstanding mid-field Rory Lambe sealed the honours for Brí Chualann. Táimid ag traenáil arís maidin Dé Sathairn.  Emmet Bhré  5 – 6,Oliver Plunketts  4 – 5.  Emmet Bhré – Under 11.  Aaron Graham, Conor Hardiman, Darragh McCormack, David Maloney (1-0), Gavin Henderson (0-1), Jamie Baguley, Michael Timmons, Rian Knox, Rory Lambe (4-5), Seán McDonagh.

Emmet Bhré – Under 11.  Aaron Graham, Conor Dowling (2-6), Conor Hardiman (2-2), Conrad Ruddy (1-0), David Martin, Darragh McCormack, David Maloney, David Nesbitt (1-3), Gavin Henderson (1-1), Rian Knox (1-1), Rory Lambe (9-5), Seán McDonagh (0-1), Stephen Reynolds (0-3).

Under 8 Football: Two of our under 8 football teams travelled to Fergal Og on Friday evening to play Roundwood and Newtown. The weather was very good giving us an evening of very entertaining football.  We had six very close games with some great skill displayed from the whole squad. There was some great goal keeping from Cian, Fiachra, Cal and Kaleigh.  Cathal, Ciarán, Adam, Luke Micallef and James all played well in the backs with the midfield very well marshalled by Joshua, Sean, Cillian, Jack and Luke Kane.  The forward line saw some great link up play with fine scores from Nathan, Sean, Charlie, Diarmuid and that great score from Alex.  Bray ended the evening ahead in a couple of the matches with some impressive scores and skill shown by all, well done to both teams. Thanks to Fergals for a well ran blitz. We have a very busy few months ahead and training continues every Sat morning 10 till 11.30. New members more than welcome.

Emmet Bhre 2004

Bray Emmets U12 camogie team travelled to Carnew on Friday last for the latest round of the Wicklow U12 league. Great credit must go to both sides for sustaining an absorbing game in persistent rain and biting cold conditions. The Bray girls came out of the block quickly and a period of sustained pressure resulted in a fine point from a 65 free by Rachel Rice. A goal from the ever threating and impressive Ailbhe Byrne followed some sustained pressure by Molly Fitzgerald and Rachel Rice in midfield. A Carnew point soon followed but not before a second goal scored from the ever threatening Lauren Mc Kenna in the full forward position. Carnew added a goal before the break to leave the score at 2:01 to 1:01 to Bray.

The second half started in frantic fashion when Bray powered ahead through a well taken goal from Ali Byrne who doubled on the sliotars in mid-flight. Carnew pulled a second goal back before Rachel Rice pointed from a long range effort on her half back line. A well taken point from play from Tricia Phelan put some level of comfort between the teams. The remaining minutes of match saw resurgence from Carnew who put the Bray back line under a lot of pressure which was expertly dealt with by Maeve O Doherty and Brona Murphy.

It was a very brave performance from the Bray girls in the inclement conditions and particularly in a venue where few Bray team have been on the right side of the score line. Particular mention should go Olivia Duffy, Lauren Healy and Ailbhe Byrne who all impressed with their work rate and commitment throughout the match.

Bray ran out eventual winner on a score line of 3:02 to 2:01.

Team: Eleanor Hayes Carroll, Tricia Phelan, Molly Fitzgerald, Rachel Rice, Lauren Mc Kenna, Ali Byrne, Maeve O Doherty, Olivia Duffy, Ailbhe Byrne, Brona Murphy and Lauren Healy
