In a sun soaked Old Conna the senior team picked up another two league points when they defeated Hollywood by 0-14 to 0-7 last Sunday morning. Stephen Fox opened the scoring after three minutes and the young talented John Henderson popped up to score a beautiful point from the left hand side. Then there seemed a lull in the match  as both sides playing at a leisurely pace in keeping with the heat of the day, struggled to put scores on the board. The score at the end of the first quarter was 0-4 to 0-2.

Two fine points from Niall Mac Graynor lifted the team spirit and further points from John O Keeffe, Alan Corr, Des Kelly and Brian O Keeffe left the score at half time 0-8 to 0-3.

Two simple mistakes at the start of the second half gave some hope to Hollywood as they converted the mistakes into two points and narrowed the gap to three points.

After a fine Brian O'Keeffe point Bray found their rhythm again and with points from the two Johns, Niall and Paddy Moynihane they ran out deserving winners 0-14 to

0-7.This was another hard working, wholehearted performance from the lads.
