Kilmacud Crokes-run Hurling Blitz

14 October, 2011

The Under 10 hurlers played in a Kilmacud Crokes-run Hurling Blitz last week. This was a very valuable and uplifting exercise.

Firstly, we played Vincents (Ath Cliath) with (2-1) coming from the stick of sharp-shooting full forward Gavin Henderson. Bray won on a (4-3) to (2-0) margin.

Next up were O'Loughlin Gaels (Cill Chainnigh), a team Bray beat (2-1) to (2-0) with Rory Lambe (1-1) taking some of the important scores.

Third team into Bray Emmets den were Kilmacud Crokes who suffered from the fire power of Rian Knox (1-0) and Seán McDonagh (1-0) to go down to Bray on a (2-2) to (1-1) scoreline.

In the final, a flagging Bray side met a fluid, warlike James Stephens (Cill Chainnigh). While we endured the first half, we certainly acquitted ourselves better in the second, with David Maloney (0-1) taking the pick of the scores.

Overall, stout defence from Michael Timmons and Sam Kearney, and mid-fielder Jamie Baguley in particular meant that Bray remained competitive to the last.

Táimid ag traenáil arís Dé Máirt ag 7pm i bPáirc Emmet Bhré.
