Bray Emmets Vs Lucan Sarsfields

19 September, 2015

The U-13s travelled to Griffeen Park on Saturday afternoon to play Lucan Sarsfields.

Seriously depleted by late withdrawals due to illness and injuries, Emmets were caught for two early goals. Boosted by characteristically gritty, stand out performances from Sam, Zack, Tadhg and Brian, and solid work from Daniel F, Adam and Eoin, Emmets fought their way back into the game to play an excellent second quarter to lead by 6 points at half time 3-4 to 2-1. Unfortunately, Emmets couldn’t sustain the effort, and boosted by a strong bench Lucan inched back into the game, scoring a number of close in frees and a few fortunate goals. Emmets found scores hard to come by but clung to a narrow lead into the final 5 minutes. Lucan then benefitted from a number of scorable frees and on the final whistle finished with a well struck goal, to finish winners on a scoreline of Lucan Sarsfields 5-7 Bray Emmets 4-6. Special mention to Brian and Sam who scored 2 goals each, and special thanks to Jack K and Cian who stepped in at very short notice to fill in for absent players.

Bray Emmets: Jack Kearney, Eoin, Adam, Daniel M, Tadhg, Jack, Zack, Philip, Sam (2-3), Brian (2-2), Andrew, Cian (0-1), Daniel F, Cathal, Rian.
