Bray Emmets 6-6 Vs Coolkenno 5-8

In this hugely entertaining game, Bray had the better of the first half, leading 3-4 to 1-3 at the break thanks to goals from Kathy Waters, Sinead Kelly and Orlaith Whelan. Coolkenno weren't going to lie down in front of a home crowd though; and within the first minutes of the 2nd half had levelled things.

The rest of the game was enthralling as each side alternately gained and lost the lead. For Bray, Aoife O'Donovan and Zoe Mulvaney had a brilliant game in midfield, providing great service to the forwards. Siofra Heffernan scored a goal and a brace of points, under-12's Sophie Connolly took three fine points whilst Sinead Kelly followed the previous week's hat-trick of goals with another, scoring 3-1. Coolkenno meanwhile were giving as good as they got and things were so tight at the end of the game that there was considerable confusion about the final score. In the end, referee gave it to Bray by a point, and on the game as a whole it was a well-deserved win for the Emmets girls.
