Junior Hurlers advance in championship semi-final

19 February, 2012

The Junior Hurlers had a 5 point cushion in this 'Junior A' championship semi-final against Avondale Sunday last. This was a pulsating and hard-fought contest for the winning Bray side.

In the first half, Paddy Lee who was tightly marked throughout managed to slip between the defenders for his trademark goal. Captain Willy Nolan also sliced the posts from distance while Michael Walsh at centre back kept a steady flow of ball pumping.

In the second half, trojan work was done by Daire Lohan, Billy Brazil and the peerless Luke O'Reilly. O'Reilly also scored a vital point from open play in the final 10 minutes, but it was Emmet Fitzgerald's opportune goal that sealed the game as a contest. Manager Kieran Delaney was delighted with the commitment and heart shown from his team. Beidh muid ag imirt in aghaidh Chill Téagáin sa chluiche ceannais i gceann seachtaine.
