Dublin Adult Hurling League Div 6- Round 3

6 April, 2014

Bray Emmets welcomed St. Sylversters to a blustery Emmet Park on Sunday morning. Emmets went into the fixture unbeaten in the league and eager to maintain their winning form. Helped by a strong wind Sylvesters were off the mark quick and were in control for long periods of the first half with the Bray midfiled and half back line feeling the pressure. With 20 mins gone Sylverters were in a strong position with a 8 point lead however through strong work from the Doyles, Tom Cash and Cian O'Bynre Bray began to cut their lead. Karl Lacey and Dara Henderson got to grips in the half back line and after a shakey first half Bray went in trailing by 5 points. Almost straight from the throw in Jim Doyle made a move for goal and raised the green flag and Bray began to take control. The Dublin side were not finished yet though and kept scores tacking on. A fine goal from Gearoid O'Muirchu gave Bray a cushion but again Sylvesters pushed on. In the nervey closing minutes a seige was lain on the Bray goal however the backs held strong and kept their 100% record in this competition with a 2 point victory 2-11 to 15 points. 

Bray team: P'O'Reilly, C Brack, H Stephenson, S Maloney, K Lacey, D Henderson, L O'Reilly, D Masterson, G O'Muirchu, B Cunningham, P Doyle, M Lennon, T Cash, J Doyle, C O'Byrne
