U12 Girls footballers take Wicklow Shield

30 September, 2012

Bray Emmets team and their supporters had a long journey down to Dunlavin for an early start to challenge Baltinglass for the Wicklow Shield.

Bray started well and were first on score board with a cracking goal from Eve Murphy. The two teams were very evenly matched and the game was a hard fought competition and the weather conditions did not help. Eleanor Carroll in goals made an excellent save but collided with a player forcing a substitution. By half time Bray were ahead by a score of 1 goal 2 points to 1 goal. Baltinglass started the second half with a goal to put them ahead for the first time in the match. The Bray girls dug deep with each and every one of the players raising their game to 110% and with the help of the supporters and coaches cheering them on from the side line converted their chances with two more points. In the last minute of the game Nicole Ryan (Goalie) saved Baltinglass last chance leaving Bray winning with a score line of 1 goal 4 points to 2 goals and three voiceless coaches. Well done to all the players who participated in all the games leading the team to this win.
