The Bray senior team collected  another two league points when they travelled to Annacurra last Sunday morning. The sun shone and we witnessed another fine team performance from the Bray boys. Annacurra opened the scoring with a thirty metre free but Bray responded immediately with points from Niall MacGraynor John O Keeffe and Paul Cunningham. John was in fact in impressive form in the first quarter, scoring three points and he was unlucky to see his goal bound shot come off the crossbar but following through, he fisted the ball over the bar. On the quarter hour Stephen Fox won possession around midfield, went on one of his typical solo-runs bouncing off two defenders before passing to Paddy Moynihane who had the easiest of tasks of tapping the ball into the net. Annacurra were to score again from another free before the break to leave the score lines at Bray 1-6 Annacurra 0-2.  

In the second half with the  wind to their backs it was all one way traffic, as time and time again Bray opened up the Annacurra defence scoring eight points from play and one free. Again our defence was strong and disciplined and their work rate was excellent. Tony Denver and Ronan O Brien were rock solid and led by example. Johnny Kinch making his first appearance for the team this year worked tirelessly in midfield.
