The u11s continued their great run in the Dublin Hurling Cup with their third successive win over Raheny. Bray were on top throughout the game and never really looked in any great danger but also didn't take anything for granted. Conor McNally has made a huge impact in goals with outstanding saves and very intelligent puck outs. Padraig Doyle, Liam Benville, Seanie Maloney and Billy Ray were very reliable in defence.

Michael Boland and Thomas Foley mastered the mid-field exchanges with Michael scoring 3-13, some from excellent free taking. Cormac Foley was the best of the forwards with courageous tackling and ended up scoring 2-2. Others that worked really hard and made good impressions were Michael Pirkl, Daniel Kennedy and Patrick Michel. The final score was 8-16 to 2-1.

Our thanks to all the parents who helped transport the Raheny parents and players both from and to the DART. Great credit also to Raheny for travelling such a long distance mid-week. Our next game is this Wed June 4th  v St. Judes in Templeogue. We all meet in Old Conna at 6.30.
