Wicklow U-14 Hurling League

11 May, 2016

Michael O ‘ Dwyers 3-20, Bray Emmets 3-03

The U-14 Hurlers were out again on Wednesday 11/05/2016 in the Wicklow league, facing Michael O Dwyer’s again for the second time in a fortnight. Emmets began with a focus and determination to salvage pride, and an epic battle followed.

Once again the backs to a man played brilliantly, harrying and blocking and hooking and completely unsettling their much fancied opponents. That effort was matched by midfield and the forwards and their efforts lead to Bray leading for stretches of the first half, but went into the break trailing by four points 2-2 to 2-6, having conceded two late scores. O’ Dwyer’s had a fine bench and they proceeded to use it very well as Emmets tired. They found space and gave an exhibition of fine point scoring.

Emmets responded with Rory taking his third goal and Brian his third point, but unfortunately it was not enough. The winning margin does little justice to a game that was enthralling to the end, with so many players producing their best performances of the season so far.

Team: Ben, Daniel F, Aaron, Daniel M, Tadhg, Adam, Zack, Philip, Peter, Jack, Cathal, Andrew ,Brian(0-3, Rory(3-0), Rian, Eoin, and Conor M.
