U12 Dublin Hurling league

24 May, 2014

Despite having a game the night before the Under 12 Dublin league team played Fingallians in their rearranged game out in Swords. Played in dry weather (for a change) against a very big and physical side, Bray took a few minutes to settle missing a few chances. The midfield line of Sam, Philip and Jack were beginning to get on top in this area getting good ball into the forward line of Fionn, Rory, Daniel and Brian who scored a well worked goal. In a very hard hitting contest Fingallians came back into the game soring a pointed free but the back line of Aaron, Zack,Tadhg, Ben and Sebastain (just back from injury) ensured Cathal had a quiet first half in goal. A couple of points before half time had Bray up by 4 points at half time.

The second half saw some positional changes with Cathal coming out of goal and Brian taking over the number 1 spot. Bray got a great start to the half with two quick goals one well worked one a bit lucky to put Bray in the drivers seat. Great play from Sam, Jack Philip kept the pressure on the Fingallians back line where the forward line of Daniel, Rory, Fionn and "young Jack" were causing all sort of problems. The side line cutting of Cathal would put Joe Canning to shame with one effort leading to a goal. The backline came under more pressure as the game more on but Aaron, Ben,Tadhg, Zack and Sebastain take a bow you were great with some of the tackling a sight to behold!!!  

This was a great defensive performance with the back line in particular really excelling with Fingallians only scoring one point from play in the whole game. Special thanks to the parents who brought out kids to the game and thanks to Fingallians and the ref (appointed at a very late stage) allowing the game to run.

Team: Cathal, Brian, Sam, Jack, Philip, Daniel, Rory, Fionn, Jack K, Aaron, Ben, Tadhg, Zack, Sebastain.
