Liffey Gaels

5 July, 2009

Liffey Gaels visited Bray Emmets for the final Under 9 game of the season. As 18 players turned out for both teams, we held two games with Bray winning 18-12 in the first and coming very close in the second 18-24.

Game A saw Eoghan Potts stop Liffey Gaels in defense and linked up with Niall Groves whose running kept the opponents on the backfoot. Ben Kearny and Noah Cummins controlled midfield with Cathal Ryan and Paul Walsh making valuable blocks. Cian Kavanagh and Oisin O'Duil kept a tight defense ensuring Bray controlled the game. Once Shane Slattery moved into centre-forward, he quickly scored 6 points. 

Game B saw Ben Fay Foley, Cormac Kelly and Shane McDermott controlling play for long periods. Fiachra Murphy and Paddy Redmond, Lochlann Dougan all linked up well, making valuable blocks. Anton Rivas, Daniel Lindsay and Rory continued to pressure until the final whistle of a very close game.
