County Scene
Well done to all of our County Players who have played important roles over the weekend. We had our Hurlers who played against Down on Saturday as they won the National League Division 2B Final. The Senior Footballers had a good win against Tipperary in Thurles on Sunday. I am reliably informed that Jane Butler is impressing with the County U14 squad. We also had representation on the U16 Hurling Team who played Kildare on Saturday.

For all Juvenile team managers

Dublin Adult Hurling League Div 6- Round 3

Bray Emmets welcomed St. Sylversters to a blustery Emmet Park on Sunday morning. Emmets went into the fixture unbeaten in the league and eager to maintain their winning form. Helped by a strong wind Sylvesters were off the mark quick and were in control for long periods of the first half with the Bray midfiled and half back line feeling the pressure. With 20 mins gone Sylverters were in a strong position with a 8 point lead however through strong work from the Doyles, Tom Cash and Cian O'Bynre Bray began to cut their lead. Karl Lacey and Dara Henderson got to grips in the half back line and after a shakey first half Bray went in trailing by 5 points. Almost straight from the throw in Jim Doyle made a move for goal and raised the green flag and Bray began to take control. The Dublin side were not finished yet though and kept scores tacking on. A fine goal from Gearoid O'Muirchu gave Bray a cushion but again Sylvesters pushed on. In the nervey closing minutes a seige was lain on the Bray goal however the backs held strong and kept their 100% record in this competition with a 2 point victory 2-11 to 15 points. 

Bray team: P'O'Reilly, C Brack, H Stephenson, S Maloney, K Lacey, D Henderson, L O'Reilly, D Masterson, G O'Muirchu, B Cunningham, P Doyle, M Lennon, T Cash, J Doyle, C O'Byrne

Division 3 Football -v- Kilbride

Bray travelled to Manor Kilbride on Sunday morning in Div3 of the adult football league. Home advantage was quickly cancelled out for Kilbride when the pitch was deemed unplayable and both teams made the journey to Lacken to play the fixture. Brays adapted the quicker to the harsh conditions and were rewarded by some excellent scores. Lee Brandon was on target from both play and frees for Bray. Cathal Magee rattled the net for Bray after some good football and on 20mins Bray found themselves 1-4 up. Worryingly Bray conceded 1.3 to their 1 pt in the 10mins before halftime. The in form Cathal Magee had to depart the action just before half time due to injury and Goalkeeper Tadgh Doran found himself in the fray. Bray lead at halftime 1-5 to 1-3. Conditions worsened in the second half and this game became a dogfight with both sides not giving an inch. The turning point was a Shane McNicholas goal, after a good turnover by Shane Sullivan the ball was darted into Garreth Crowely who found the goal scorer thundering through with a delicate pass. Kilbride closed the gap with a late surge but Bray held their discipline and with the sight of just Ian Smith left on the bench everyone emptied the tank to run out 2-8 to 1-8 winners. Training continues on Tuesday at 8pm. We all wish Cathal a speedy recovery. Team Keith Hillick, Brendan Snow, Rob McNammee, Mark Mulvaney, Ishmal Mnensa, Jeff Morrissey, Mark Nolan, Ray Lambe, Peter Walsh, Shane Sullivan, Shane McNicholas, Lee Brandon, Cathal Magee, John O'Mahoney, Garreth Crowley, Tadgh Doran, Ian Smith.

Minor Dublin Camogie Development League

We played Cuala in our last match of the group stages on Sunday in Shanganagh Park.Having won 4 of our last 5 matches in the league. Cuala needed to win to finish clear at the top of the League at the end of the group stages, while we needed to win to draw level at the top. The first half was a great contest and very tight affair we had a lot of chances but went in behind 2.4 to 2.2. Cuala got off to a great start in the second half by scoring a goal and 2 points to leave them ahead a goal and four points.But then we started too play and what a finish.We had some great scores from Clare, Niamh, Kellie, Aoife, Anna and Coaimhe but it was the supply of ball from our defence and midfield who drove them on. We scored 3 goals and 8 points in the second half to run out winners on a scoreline of 5.10 to 3.10.This was a great performance from all the girls.Hard luck to Cuala who contributed to a great game.We had heros and leaders all over the pitch from Sophie in goal,Caitlin and Orlaith on the full back line,Nicola,Lauren and Niamh on the half back line and Sarah and Roisin in the midfield.We have a panel of 20 girls and on the day 5 were missing due to various reasons but the training and hardwork is really starting to show. Well done girls on a great performance.  Team, Sophie Mooney, Caitlin Hand, Orlaith Griffin-Carroll, Nicola Holland, Lauren Sweeney, Niamh McCormack, Roisin Quigley Capt, Sarah kate Hayde, Anna Molloy, Kellie Gilbert, Kellie Waters, Clare Holland, Coaimhe Lohan and Aoife Connaughton.
