U16 Girls draw with Naomh Barrog (Kilbarrack)

9 March, 2013

What a start to the new season! In what turned out to be a thrilling game against Naomh Barrog (Kilbarrack), the Bray girls began on the front foot with scores from Juliette Fortune, Seona Michel and Caoimhe Lohan. However, Naomh Barrog didn't sit back and registered some fine scores themselves. Our goalkeeper Sophie Connolly was in great form, as were our back three, Lauren Kelly Anna Ryan and our captain Jessica Conway who again led by example. Our forwards kept the scoreboard ticking over with some fine points as a result of quick hand passing moves. Molly Hunt and Amy Barry were involved in some fine scores from the corner forward positions. Quick ball out of defence from our half-backs Grace O'Donovan, Roisin Corrigan and Niamh Sullivan served our midfielders and half-forwards well with Ruby Stewart, Shauna Douglas and Ciara Nolan producing some fine link play. At the break, Bray Emmets led by a point. The second half saw Naomh Barrog come out with all guns blazing and racing into a six-point lead. Our two replacements, Orla Gleeson and Rachel Cullen, who were introduced at half-time, started to win possession down the right wing and the comeback began. Some fantastic scores from Seona, Caoimhe, Juliette and Shauna, as well as two fine saves by Sophie and some great defending by our backs, got Bray right back in the match. In the last five minutes, Naomh Barrog were twice saved by the woodwork to leave the final score Bray Emmets 3-9 Naomh Barrog (Kilbarrack) 3-9. A great match to be part of and great performances by all involved. ...

St Pats

6 October, 2008

The U16 girls were beaten by St Pats in the semi finals of the B Wicklow championship. The score line suggested that this was an easy win for St Pats but this was far from the case as the girls performed excellently in the first half. Despite missing some of their players, they played their best football so far this season in the first period with some beautiful executed moves from the forwards leading to great goals by Alisha Doyle, Jennifer O'Brien, and Lauren Roe. They were unlucky to be down a couple of points going into half time. Unfortunately as has been the case for much of the season the girls ran out of steam in the second half and St Pats pulled away with some well taken goals. The backs worked hard, particularly Jennifer Ryan, Emer, and Sarah Longmore. The midfield pair of Carly and Rachel Cunningham, before she retired injured, worked hard and managed to get some good ball into the forwards. The girls have shown steady improvement all year and with a bit more fitness and tactical nous they can become much more competitive. ...
