Bray Emmets 2-19 Vs Harps 1-9

Harps of Laois travelled up to Bray last Saturday (19th March), to play the third and final match of the group. Having won their opening two matches our boys knew they were in for a tough match. However this wasn’t to be the case, our lads completely over ran the Laois boys in the first half scoring 2.13 in the process to only 2 points by the Harps.

It started from the back line right through to the forward line, complete domination, Darragh Henderson, Lukie Maloney and Peter Walsh hardly let a ball into Lohan and Darragh Maloney who was in the goal instead of Peter O’Reilly. Christy(4) and Mikey(2.6) were running the show up front, and Philip Collins and John Henderson(1) in control at mid field, Padge Doyle(2) also adding to the tally . The second half did prove to be more competitive and the Laois boys with only 2 points on the board surely needed a huge improvement and in fairness to them, they won the second half 1.7 to 6, but it was Bray that ran out emphatic winners on a score line of 2.19 to 1.9 at the final whistle, on a day that saw three Maloney brothers, two Lohan’s, two Henderson’s, two McCormack’s and two Walsh’s line out, the band rolls on. Karl Lacey and Gearoid Murphy came on in the second half and did well, this win should see us through to the next stage of the competition but not sure as all is not finalised yet. Once again great support for the lads, many thanks to all who got over to cheer us on, greatly appreciated.
