U-14 Wicklow Hurling

8 June, 2016

Bray Emmets 8-13    Glenealy 3-5

The U-14s welcomed Glenealy to Old Conna on a foggy Wednesday night last 8/06/2016. Gleanealy travelled with 12 players, so from the throw in there was plenty of space even on pitch 2 which Emmets quickly exploited. The early exchanges saw Glenealy take a 0-2 to 0-1 lead but the inside forwards Zack, Brian, Gavin and Cian secured a steady supply of excellent possession from Jack, Cathal and Rory at midfield and had Emmets comfortably ahead after 20 minutes. The backs were their usual solid selves, Adam excellent at centre back, Tadhg anticipating and clearing well and Eoin and Aaron securing the back line and offering solid protection to Ben who was as dependable as ever in nets. With an excellent turnout of 20 players Emmets had plenty of players to bring on, and Luan Art, Sebastian and Rian came on after 20 minutes to play a big role in driving Emmets on. At half time, Emmets were comfortably ahead on a score of 6-5 to 2-4. In the second half, Fionn took over in goal and Daniel F, Daniel M and Conor stepped in to play their part, and Emmets added a further 2-8 to their tally and refused to let Glenealy back into the game, which finished Bray Emmets 8-13 Gleanely 3-5.

Special mention to Jack who was a power house all night and Adam, Sebastian, Tadhg, Luan and Rory who never let Glenealy settle on the ball, and Gavin and Brian whose excellent score-taking secured a platform for the win.

This was an excellent team performance, the lads showed tremendous fight to win possession. They distributed the ball well, took good scores and their discipline was excellent throughout.

Team: Ben, Aaron, Eoin, Tadhg, Adam, Cathal (0-1), Jack (2-2), Rory, Cian (1-0), Gavin (2-4), Zack (0-1), Brian (2-4), Luan, Art (1-0), Rian, Daniel F (0-1), Daniel M, Conor G, Sebastian (1-0), Fionn.
