The Senior Team picked up another two league points when they defeated Coolkenno last Saturday down in Old Conna. Playing with the breeze in the first half they took the game to Coolkenno. John Walsh playing at the edge of the square was in hot form scoring a hat trick and always doing the simple things right. His first was a long brilliantly placed ball from Conor Flannery over the full back for John to field round the goalkeeper and tuck to the net. His second was the score of the match. A well worked move out of defence found Paddy Moynihan in the wing who fed Stephen Fox. The latter took off and headed for goal. Quick hands saw the ball transferred from Stephen to Niall McGraynor to John who again sweetly placed the ball beyond the advancing goalkeeper into the net. His third just before half time came, when a Flanno point effort from the left side fell short and John rose and punched the ball to the back of the net. Others to score in the first half were Niall McGraynor and Connor Flannery.

Bray led at half time 3-3 to 0-4.

In the second half Bray kept up the pressure and with a solid performance from the backs they ran out deserving winners on a scoreline of 4-7 to 0-8.

Luke Benson got on the score sheet after a long snippet run out of defence saw him blast the ball to the back of the net. Paddy Moynihan scored two fine points from play and Des Kelly and Flanno got on the score sheet.

This was another fine team performance but there is still room for improvement.

Scorers: J. Walsh 3-0, L. Benson 1-0, C. Flannery 0-3, P. Moynihan 0-2, D. Kelly 0-1, N. McGraynor 0-1.
