Bray Emmets GAA Club Notes

Bray Emmets Notes

Under 16 Football

We had a good start to our U16 Girls B Championship last Saturday in Emmet Bre Park. This was the Quarter Final against St Nicholas, Dunlavin Team.  The Bray Girls found it very hard to settle in the first half, and with lack of concentration and silly mistakes we went in 7 points down at half time.  After a good talking to, a very different team came out for the second half.  The girls played together as a team.  Their passing skills, general fitness and determination to win this game, overcame a very good Dunlavin team.  Our Bray girls never gave up and we won the game with a 4 point margin.

Under 14 Camogie

On Saturday 25th of September the U14 Camogie team travelled to Glenealy to play Knockanna in the Shield Final. We qualified for the final by beating Kilcoole and Avondale in previous rounds. We agreed with Knockanna to play the full pitch and 15 a side this was to ensure all 21 players got to play. Knockanna ran out deserved winners but not after a very determined performance from the Bray girls. The Bray girls fought hard for every ball and made Knockanna work hard for there scores. The girls have shown a massive improvement this year and to think they are all U14 again next year bodes very well for the future. So well done girls on a good year and keep up the good work.

On Sunday 19th September, the Camogie U14 played Glenealy in a rearranged League fixture in Emmet Park. Due to the unavailability of a number of girls it was time to use our panel and they didn’t let us down. The final score was 2:1 to 2.1 a draw. In a low scoring match we had our keeper Amy Barry to thank for the number of outstanding saves she made throughout the match. We had enough chances up front but were unable to take them against a good Glenealy defence. It was another outstanding display from all the girls, epical mention to Rachel Hand who was outstanding again.

Under 9 Football

The Under 9 footballers played St Anne’s Bohernabreena Thursday night. Apart from the heavy rain, the competition was keen and the standard of Football sharp. Two Bray seven-a-sides played their Tallaght counterparts. Jamie Baguley and Conor Hardiman played skillfully for their team while Michael Connolly and Gavin Henderson worked hard on the other side.
