Bray Emmets Under-11 Hurler

16 February, 2013

Bray Emmets Under-11 Hurlers played their counterparts from Faughs over the weekend on the excellent astro pitch in Old Conna (where would we be without it!!). In a game played over 3 periods everyone played their part in this friendly to get the hurling season underway. In the first period excellent work by the midfield pairing of Sam Kearney and Jack Treacy ensured a steady flow of ball into the forward line where Sebastain Coleman, Oscar Harty, Cathal Eddy and Ben Gorman proved very dangerous.
The backline of Philip Jakob, Tadhg McCarthy, Eoin Holmes and Aaron O'Rourke ensured the Faugh's fowardline were kept quiet.
The second period saw the introduction of Riain MacMaolin, Hannah Surpless, Aodain Daly, Ciaran Mangan and Daniel Munro who all played very well and the team as a whole built on their first period performance keeping Faughs scoreless whilst scoring an excellently worked goal. Playing into the wind and getting tired, Bray wilted a small bit in the final period allowing Faughs to come back into the game but Bray finished the game with a goal in the last puck of the game. Overall this was a worthwhile exercise with everyone contributing to the effort. Particular mention must go to our goal keeper, the most difficult position on the pitch, Zack Collins who was brilliant through out, making numerous saves and using very accurate puck outs to turn defense into attack. Thanks to Faughs for coming out to play and ensuring the Under-11's go into the league campaign with a game under their belt. The Under-11's first match is against St. Judes next Saturday in Old Conna.
