Under 10 Hurling

Setanta HC v Bray Emmets, Dublin League, 5th April

Our under 10 hurling team kept up their excellent start to their Dublin League campaign with a fine performance against Setanta HC in Ballymun on Saturday morning. Family Confirmations and a rugby trip to Limerick had left the squad without many of their key players, but those left to see out this fixture did so with great skill and determination. Bray Emmets only conceded one goal due to terrific and tenacious defending by Oscar, Cal and Fiachra, supported by the solid goalkeeping of Dara, in the first half, and Nathan in the second.

Nathan had already opened the scoring for Bray with a well struck shot in the first half. This was added to by a superb point from Adam Prunty, following a great solo run by Adam Dutton down the right wing midway through the opening period. The midfield was very well marshaled by Alex and Cathal, who got the ball through to forwards Jamie and Cillian at every opportunity, to keep intense pressure on the Setanta goal. Jamie added a second goal five minutes from the end to seal a well-deserved win for the Bray team. All 11 players can be immensely proud of their display on Saturday. The under 10s are improving with every game, a point which was also noted by the Setanta coaches who, at the end of the match, expressed their admiration for the way Bray had played throughout.
