Dublin U-15 Hurling League Division 4

23 April, 2017

Bray Emmets 7-9 - Counsel Gaels 0-3

Bray Emmets U-15 Hurlers continued their progress through the Dublin League with a comprehensive win over a very competitive and sporting Counsel Gaels side on Sunday 23rd April.

The first half was extremely competitive on a big pitch in perfect hurling conditions, and scores were hard to come by. Ben opened with a fine point from play, before Sam put some daylight between the sides with a brace of goals. Ben scored twice more, one an excellent ‘65’ and Cathal and Sam added further points to send the sides to half time on a 0-0 to 2-4 scoreline. At the start of the second half, Bray struck an early goal and further points and the game opened up. With the backs refusing to yield a score, and feeding good ball into the forwards, and a MOM performance from Peter at midfield, the forwards linked well to add scores. Brian added 2-1, Sam 2-0, Rory 1-1 and with Peter and Fionn chipping in with a point each, Bray were not to be caught. Excellent work again in defence, all of them Eoin, Zack, Aaron, Jack, Dan F and Adam, having particularly good games. Sam was again lethal especially going forward, and the forwards put in a very good shift, with excellent work from Rian, Ben, Rory and Cathal.

Special thanks to Counsel Gaels. The official referee failed to appear and they provided the referee who was excellent.

Team: Fionn (0-1). Eoin, Aaron, Jack, Dan F, Adam, Zack, Peter (0-1), Sam (4-1), Rian, Ben (0-3), Cathal( 0-1), Brian (2-1), Rory (1-1), Dan M , Conor, Andrew.Unavailable: Tadhg Mac, Tadhg A.
