Bray Emmets Vs Barndarrig

The under fourteen development football team had their third match in Wicklow last Wednesday against Barndarrig. In sunny conditions Bray settled quickly with Tadhg and Michael playing really well in midfield. Playing against much bigger opponents the forward line of Daniel, Gavin, the two Eoins and Cathal were always dangerous and took their scores well. The backline were fantastic all through with the ever excellent Philip, Rory, Donal and Jamie tacking harrying and blocking their direct opponents to distraction. Aaron playing in goal had a brilliant game.

Level at half time, Bray were under pressure for most the second half. The back line was immense throughout and particularly the tackling of Rory, Philip , Jamie and teak tough Donal was very encouraging for the coaches. The midfield of Tadhg and Michael ran themselves to a standstill. The forward line of the now injured Gavin, the ever sharp Daniel, the two Eoins and the hardworking Aaron kept working all the way through. In the end the strength of Barndarrig won through for a hard fought win.

Special mention to Cathal who played in goal in the second half, he made a number of top class saves and a calming influence throughout. While defeat was their lot this was the team's best performance so far. They were disciplined and hardworking throughout. Apart from one player all the team will be underage next year so they are getting great experience.
