U11 hurlers V Thomas Davis

31 March, 2012

The under 11 hurlers travelled to Thomas Davis on Saturday morning for the third match of their Dublin campaign. The match was played on astroturf in near windless conditions. Seán McDonagh was the first player from either team to score with a huge point from near half way, Aaron Graham finished off a fine piece of team work with a goal, not to be outdone, Rory Lambe also found the net before half time to leave the score at the break 2-1 to 0-0 in Bray's favour. The second half was a tighter affair, Gavin Henderson scoring 2 points, Rory Lambe (1-1) and David Nesbitt saving his best until last (a well taken goal from distance). The final score was (4-4) to (2-2), Thomas Davis should well have scored more, but the usual excellence of Rian Knox in goal, Michael Timmons and David Maloney in defence ensured that they were held to (2-2). Conor Hardiman operated well in front of the defence with Darragh McCormack making a nuisance of himself disrupting Thomas Davis' midfield.

Emmet Bhré U11: Rian Knox, Michael Timmons, David Maloney, Seán McDonagh (0-1), Conor Hardiman, Gavin Henderson (0-2), Aaron Graham (1-0), Rory Lambe (2-1), David Nesbitt (1-0), Darragh McCormack
