Bray Emmets: 1-00 Glenealy: 4-0

In a hotly contested match, Bray Emmets gave second best to Glenealy in the U12 Camogie League. Glenealy started well and despite excellent defending by Sarah Hayd, Emma Groves and Amy Barry and Caoimhe Lohan and very good goal keeping from Aoife Connaughton, Glenealy were ahead by two goals.

With some positional changes at half time Bray started the second half well with a good goal from Lauren Barry after great work by Ciara Nolan. Bray continued to press through Maeve Ni Mhidigh and Fiona Faherty in the forwards, with Shauna Douglas, Lauren Sweeney and Afric Murphy dominating mid field and were unfortunate not to fashion another score.
Glenealy came into the match late on and scored two further goals notwithstanding excellent work by Sophie Mooney and Shauna Carroll, who played everywhere except in goal!
This was a huge effort by the team which is progressing game on game and the evidence of this was seen in the number of girls who were prepared to lift the ball and try and strike it out of their hands.
Thanks to all the parents who provided lifts and Hugh Connaughton for his assistance in coaching the team on the night.
