The Final against Knockanna in Ashford on the the 16th of October.This was a major step up for the girls.They have been playing very well all year and giving a great committment.

Knockanna started the quickest and got a few early scores but towards the half time mark the girls came into the game and scored two great points from Coaimhe Lohan and Lauren Sweeney.The girls played well in the second half and gave a great account of themselves.We went on to score another 1.4 from play with Coaimhe getting the goal and Shauna Douglas a couple of points before she was forced off due to a hand injury.Knockanna went on to win the game and ran out worthy winners.The Bray girls deserve great credit for continuing to work for each other and never giving up.This was a good team performance from the girls with stand out performances from Lauren Sweeney ,Roisin Quigley,Coaimhe Lohan, Shauna Douglas,Niamh McCormack in goals ably assisted by Sophie Mooney,Amy Barry,Amy oConnor,Caitlin Hand,Aisling Moylan,Rachel Hand,Sarah Hayde,Nicole Moore,Kellie Gilbert,Fiona Faherty,Meave Ni Mhidigh,Clare Holland,Nicola Holland,Orla Griffin,Shannon Scanlon,Katherine Hayes,Emma Groves,Casey o'Brien.
