Eire Og

16 March, 2008

Minor hurlers played Eire Óg's in Greystones on Sunday morning last. In the start of their second round of the league the Bray team opened the scoring with a point from a free by Gearoid O'Murchú. This was followed fairly smartly by a point and a goal from Eire Óg.

The first round match has finished in a draw so no doubt confidence was growing with the home team. However that was short lived as at half time the score was 2-7 for Bray to 1-2 for Eire Óg with scoring from Gearoid, Tom Cash and Matthew Keating.  The St Brendan's Oklahoma cowboys, Owen Brazil, Luke O'Reilly and Harry Stephenson along with backstage director Peter O'Reilly having returned from their Transition Year trip to Paris the night before all played "tres bienne" having obviously picked up some artistic touches from their visit to the Louvre!

The second half, while a little more physical, saw more of the same from Bray with Aaran Murphy also adding to the score board. The Bray backs never let the Greystones forwards through with the ball. Cillian O'Maolmhuaidh made a brilliant save towards the end of the match which deterred Eire Óg from getting a much needed goal. Final scoreline was Bray Emmets 3-18 Eire Óg 1-4. Bray Emmets next match is against Carnew in Bray on Good Friday at 12 noon.

The Bray Team: Peter O'Reilly, Niall O'Suilleabháin, Lorcan Pratt (capt), Gearoid O'Murchú(1-10), David Haughton, Paul Cunningham, Tom Cash (1-5), Dominic Broghan, Niall McCague, Ronan Cunningham, Owen Brazil, Matthew Keating (1-0), Luke O'Reilly, Harry Stephenson, Cillian O'Maolmhuaidh, Aaran Murphy(0-3), Dara Maloney, John Henderson
