Junior Hurling

Emmet Bhré  4-12, Glenealy  0-11. 
The Junior hurlers played Glenealy on Wed 11th June in Páirc Emmet Bhré. A beautiful evening for a game, this sporting encounter refereed by a Glenealy man, did not disappoint. Cathal Reddin and Seán Maloney were minding the house, but it was Ryan Tynan who was in Anthony Nash-form, thundering in two great penalties that put daylight between the two teams. Craig Brack-Sinnott and Colin Salmon worked hard in the engine room, along with strong tackling from David Ebbs. The main man upfront, stewarding and delivering a personal (1-3) was the influential Brian Duggan. Cheer of the night went to Rathdowney's finest son, Bill Maher, who signaled his return with a fine score and other generous assists. Beidh muid san Inbhear Mór an tseachtain seo chugainn.

Under 12 Hurling

On a sunny Saturday Bray Emmets Under 12s had their third league match in Dublin. Playing against a big St Vincent's team Bray started well with strong performances from Sam, Sebastain, Tadhg, Ben and Eoin. The forward line of Rory, Daniel F, Peter, Oscar and Luke battled hard against a well drilled and skilful Vincent's defence with both teams finding scores hard to come by. Cathal and Fionn when he went in goal ensured good accurate ball went into the forward line and Daniel M and Riain played well when they came on. At half time the sides were level with all to play for in the second period.
Bray started the second half well and began to dominate around the middle of the field with Cathal and Sam ensuring good ball went into the forward line. Rory, Peter, Luke, Riain, the two Daniels and Oscar in particular continued their hard work but were finding it hard to get on top of their opponents. The introduction of Philip brought more urgency to the proceedings and Bray engineered a well-deserved goal to give Bray some breathing space. Vincents were not finished however with the defence being asked more questions. Hard work and great defending by Sebastain, Ben, Tadhg, Eoin and Fionn in goals kept scoring chances to a minimum with Bray eventually running out winners.
This was by far Bray's toughest game so far this year in Dublin and it was good to see the lads battling to the end, thanks to St Vincents for making the journey out and to the referree who officiated on the day. 
Team: Cathal, Rory, Fionn, Tadhg, Ben, Eoin, Sebastain, Sam, Peter, Riain, Luke, Daniel Flavin, Daniel Munro, Oscar and Philip.
