League Game V An Newtown

26 April, 2008

Senior Football : Bray Emmets 7pts - Newtown 9pts. 
There was a disappointing result for our seniors footballers when they lost by two points to Newtown in Old Connaught last Saturday 26.4.  The disappointment was in the result rather than the display because the performance of the team in the second half deserved at the very least a draw.  While the team created many scoring opportunities, their failure to take those scores, cost them the game. Newtown started very well and led by five points to two after twenty minutes. For the final ten minutes of the half the Emmet's came more into the game and the half time score was 6pts to 4pts in favour of Newtown. The Emmet's could not reduce that two point margin during the second half despite having plenty of opportunities to do so.

Best for the Emmet's were Rory Breslin, Oisin O Hannaidh, Ronan O Brien, Paul Barry, Sean Quinn, Brian O' Keefe, Ray Lamb and John Walsh. 

 Scorers: Johnny Kinch 3pts, Brian O'Keefe 2pts, Stephen Fox and R. Lamb 1pt each. 
The results to date: Played 6-W2-L2-D2. The next league match is away to Blessington.
