Bray Emmets: 7-0, Kilcoole: 0-0

Bray Emmets recorded a very well deserved win against a very spirited Kilcoole team in the U12 Camogie League. Bray started well and got on top in midfield through great work from Shauna Douglas, Shauna O'Carroll and Caoimhe Lohan. Any Kilcoole attacks were quickly snuffed out by excellent displays in defence from Sara Hayd and Isobel Horner and Aoife Connaughton who is making quiet a name for herself in goal! Excellent play by the forwards and two goals apiece from Ciara Nolan and Lauren Sweeney (one was an absolute fantastic finish!) had Bray four goals up at half time.

Because of Bray's strength in depth wholesale changes were made for the second half and it was a match to remember for the Barry family with sisters Lauren and Amy scoring two good goals. Continued excellent work in midfield from Aifric Murphy who also scored a fine goal, Fiona Faherty and Jenny Sparks when she came out of goal ensured a steady supply of ball into the forward line. Kilcoole gave thier all in the second half but could not find anyway past the excellent backline of Emma Groves and Sophie Mooney.
