The senior team had a good work out against Clonakility in a challenge game last Sunday down in Old Conna. In a very entertaining game the Bray lads can be proud of their performance. Their work rate and whole hearted display was excellent. Playing against a blustery breeze Bray were sharper and alert to the breaking ball.

Conor Flannery opened the scoring with a well taken free after Alan Corr was fouled on the 30 metre line. Corr again on another great support run out of defence was at the end of a great passing move to blast the ball to back of the net. Clonakility replied with some accurate shooting but points from Niall MacGraynor, Mikey Browne Luke Benson and Flannery saw Bray go in at half time 1-7 to 0-7.

Shortly after the restart a bad passing mistake coming out of defence saw Clonakility score an opportunistic goal and leave the barest of margins between the teams. It was now time for the Bray lads to stand up and be counted and they didn't disappoint. Methodically and meticulously they took the game to Clonakility. Points from Paddy Moynihane, Alan Corr, Ray Lambe, Niall MacGraynor and a well taken goal from John O Keeffe saw the Bray boys finish strongly.

The final score was Bray 2-13 Clonakility1-9.
