U11 hurlers travel to St Patricks in Palmerstown

1 June, 2013

On a very sunny Saturday morning Bray Emmets Under-11’s played their counterparts from St Patricks in Palmerstown in the second round of matches in the Dublin League. St Pats started very well scoring an excellent point literally from the throw in and it looked like it was going to be a tough day at the office for the Bray team. However, Bray got quickly into their stride with Philip and Sebastain taking control in midfield ensuring good quick ball into the forward line of Ben, Brian and Zack. A number of scores followed and although the back line was rarely troubled Rory, Aaron and Tadhg ensured the St Pats forwards were kept quiet. Sam in goal saw little action but the accuracy of his pucks ensured Brian was able to raise a number of green flags. Cathal, Hannah, Daniel Flavin and Daniel Munro kept the pressure up on the St Pats leaving Bray well ahead at half time.
The second half was very similar to the first with Bray's appetite for ball certainly overwhelmed St Pats who had no answer to the sheer determination of Philip, Cathal, Sam, Sebastain and in particular Aaron who was a constant thorn on the side of many of the St Pats players. Rory enjoyed his role in new position upfront and Brian kept a clean sheet in goal. Zack and Tadhg were inspirational in the back line with Hannah the two Daniels and Ben playing very well up front resulting in Bray running out comfortable winners. This was a good performance albeit against limited opponents who are just getting hurling going at this level. Special praise must go to Daniel Flavin for his first outing with the hurling team who played well throughout and got on a lot of ball and very unlucky not to score. Team: Sam Kearney, Rory Mulcahy, Zack Collins, Aaron O'Rourke, Sebastain Coleman, Philip Jakob, Ben Gorman, Tadhg McCarthy, Hannah Surples, Daniel Flavin, Daniel Munro, Cathal Eddy and Brian Nesbitt
