Bray Emmets 4-0 St Patrick's 4-0

It was hoped that this would be a very special game, and it was in every way a great game for players and spectators alike. There were wonderful displays of camogie skills and great friendly rivalry between the Bray Emmet girls and the local school team from St Patrick's. A night of divided loyalties, friendly rivalry and much mirth between the coaches on the night, as some of the St Patrick's girls play for Bray Emmets. It was hard to believe that some of the girls have been playing for less than a year and even harder to believe that some of the girls haven't even reached their 10th  birthday!

Strong playing and good skills were evident in all areas on both sides. Every player played to the best of their ability and it would be hard to pick out any one for special praise.

Bray Emmets got off to a strong start with 2 fine goals and were leading at half time. A spirited St Patricks fought back and levelled the score in the second half and Bray Emmets added another goal to their score halfway through the 2nd  half and St Patricks added a third goal to their tally. One more goal was scored for each side to make the score a magnificent draw of 4-4 at the final whistle.

Excellent play girls! You were all a credit to yourselves, your club and your school.Well done one and all!
