Kiltegan 125 Centenary Football Competition

1 June, 2009

The senior team got off to a great start in the 125 Centenary Football Competitions with an emphatic win over Kiltegan last Sunday down in Kiltegan. Playing in what can only be described as atrocious wet conditions, the Emmets totally dominated this match from start to finish.

They opened in style with points from Niall McGraynor, Alan Corr, Conor Flannery and Liam McGraynor. An opportunist goal from the flying Luke Benson put some daylight between the two teams. Paddy Moynihan winning the race for the ball out near the corner flag decided to dribble the ball along the end line before crossing for Luke to blast soccer style into the roof of the net. In the 2nd quarter Kiltegan scored two points while Bray had further points from Oisín O hAnnaidh, Niall McGraynor and Ray Lambe. The score at half time was 1-7 to 0-2.

In the 2nd half, Bray continued to play with the same conviction and belief and goals from Stephen Fox and Paddy Moynihan, finished this match as a contest. They ran out eventual winners 3-12 to 0-3.

 Maurice Doyle playing as an extra midfielder worked tirelessly supporting and helping out his colleagues. He did exactly what was asked of him and was simply outstanding. There were many other positive aspects about Bray's performance -

  • The rock solid defence.
  • The creative attacking skills of the forwards.
  • The midfield dominance by Stephen Fox and Ray Lambe.

 This was a regal team performance in which every player performed to the maximum of their ability.


N. McGraynor 0-4, L. Benson 1-0, S. Fox 1-0, P. Moynihan 1-0, C. Flannery 0-3, R. Lambe 0-2, A. Corr 0-1, O. O hAnnaidh 0-1, L. McGraynor 0-1.
