Bray Emmets 2-13 – Arklow 0-06

29 June, 2008

The senior team got back on track with a comprehensive win over Arklow last Saturday in Aughrim. Playing with a strong breeze they took the game to Arklow and right from the opening minute it was obvious that they had the self belief and passion to win this game. Within five minutes they were five points up and playing superb controlled football. Dara O Hannaidh and Stephen Fox dominated midfield and ensured the forwards with a plentiful supply of ball. Up front, Paddy Moynihan, Brian O Keeffe, Ray Lamb,and Niall Gaffney were causing all sorts of problems for the Arklow defence and they had the umpires waving flags like grand prix marshalls.The score at half time was Bray Emmets 2-11 Arklow 0-3.

In the second half Bray closed down the hatches and the defence superbly marshalled by captain Oisin O Hannaidh produced a well disciplined and organised performance. Marking was tighter with players swarming back to cut off any gaps that appeared.Though Bray only scored two points in the second half they controlled the match for long periods.Overall this was an accomplished collective performance from the senior team and it augurs well for the future. Scorers J. Kinch 1-3, B. O Keeffe 1-2, N-Gaffney 0-3, P. Moynihan 0-2, R.Lamb 0-2, L.Benson 0-1.
