Match Reports

U8 Girls Football

Bray Emmets Vs  Kilmacud Crokes

After the postponement of a blitz in Wicklow we got an invite to play in Kilmacud. Despite the threatening weather, over 60 girls were raring to go and we managed to get two matches in before it got too wet and cold.

This was the first wet match the girls have ever played and they managed the conditions very well. We came from behind in the first game to salvage a draw and played really well in the second to win it. Goals from Ciara, Kate S and Kimberly were backed up by great defence from the rest of the team. 

Team: Aisling O'Keefe, Ciara , Ciara Lambe, Grace Kennedy, Kate Butler, Kate Slattery, Katie Curran, Kimberly Kennedy, Naoise Sweeney McMaster, Niamh Canavan, Olivia Gibson, Orla Fitzsimons, Ruby Hannon.  Banisteoir:  Alan kennedy


U-11 Dublin League Hurling

Bray Emmets Vs St Patrick's Palmerstown v 

The U-11 side put in a fine performance, leading to a convincing win against St. Patrick's Palmerstown on Saturday morning.

Although the final scoreline would suggest a very one-sided game, the match was really much closer over most parts of the 50 minutes, with Bray having to work hard for their victory. Bray led by 1-4 to 0-0 at half-time, with all of the scores at that stage coming from team captain Adam Prunty.

He added another 2 goals soon after the break, and ultimately finished the match with a tally of 5-5! There were, however, fine performances throughout the team, with further scores coming from Jack Kearney, Alex Colgan and Finn Tracey.

There were moments of fine skill demonstrated from several of the Bray players, with one pick-up and pass from Shane Baguley in the first half being amongst the best that this coach has ever seen.

Cillian Murphy, Cathal MacMaolain and James Byrne all combined well to keep the St Pat's forwards scoreless, while Jamie Healy, Jamie Mooney and Nathan Hunter kept their defenders busy throughout, and it was much of their good play which created the opportunities for others to take their scores.

U12 Hurling

Bray Emmets Vs Whitehall Colmcille

Bray Emmets under 12 hurlers welcomed Whitehall Colmcille to a bright and breezy Old Conna on Saturday. The wind dictated the tone and tenor of the match and Bray had to withstand almost continuous attacks from their opponents during the first half. The score at the end of this half though told the story of their success.

Art in nets let in no goals and the team only conceded 4 points. The backs that lead this effort were made up of Simon, Luan and Jamie in the full backline and Michael and Oscar M in the half backline.

The midfield of Gavin and Oscar H, assisted by the half forwards Evan and Cian compressed the middle of the park and never let Whitehall any easy shots.

The second half told a different story. Bray, now with the wind on their backs, almost immediately levelled the game with Nathan goaling and Gavin pointing after long puck outs by Cian, who was now in nets.

The backline continued their tigerish tackling with Conor now ensconced in the full backline while Quintin, and Eoin backed up by Louie continually kept their goalie busy. Bray added two more goals and a point before Whitehall scored a super goal and a point following determined work by their forwards. Bray however tacked on one more point to close out the game.

The final score was 3goals and 3 points to 1 goal and 5 points.

Team: Art, Jamie, Luan, Simon, Oscar M, Michael, Gavin, Oscar H, Evan, Cian, Conor, Eoin, Quentin, Louie and Nathan.


U12 Camogie

Bray emmets vs St Patrick’s Palmerston

The U12 Camogie team played St Patrick’s Palmerston, Sat 11th April in their fourth Dublin fixture. On a windy afternoon, the hurling was hard work but the application of the girls never waned. From the throw-in, Ellen O’Doherty, Catherine McGarry and Aoife Canavan made valuable attacking contributions. Pearl O’Connor and Sarah Lambe commanded a gusty and competitive midfield.

Bray had a comfortable half-time edge, which they steered on attentively until the final whistle rang out in Bray’s favour. Róisín Benville, Olivia Kissane and Erica Brierton were all excellent in the second-half. Bhí na traenálaithe, Eugene Canavan agus Larry Timmons, sona sásta leis an toradh. 

Foireann : Amy Butler (0-1), Aoife Canavan, Catherine McGarry (1-0), Eimear Timmons, Ellen O’Doherty (3-0), Erica Brierton (1-0), Kaleigh Broderick, Olivia Kissane, Pearl O’Connor (2-0), Róisín Benville, Saoirse Canavan (2-0), Sarah Lambe (1-1), Sarah Staunton. Bainisteoir -  Brian Lambe.    

U14 Girls Football

Emmet Bhré  3-9, Éire Óg Greystones  2-4.

The Under 14 girls Football team were out against near neighbours Éire Óg, Thursday 9th  April. The team settled quickly with Shauna Ryan and Caoimhe Hardiman finding their target early. Emily Deveney, Róisín Murphy and Laura McGarry worked invaluably in the engine-room allowing Bray the briefest of halftime leads. 

In the second-half, Alannah Henry and Sasha Ní Laoghaire were worthy of particular mention. Up front, the heavy artillery were rolling out their fire-power. Sophie Blennerhasset a player apart, and a fantastic Alice O’Doherty goal were among the spectator delights, while intelligent link play involved  Orla O’Keeffe and Emma Doyle.  Ar an líne, bhí Brian O’Keeffe an-sásta leis an gcluiche.  

Foireann : Áine Clarke, Alannah Henry, Alice O’Doherty (1-0), Amy Butler, Caoimhe Byrne, Caoimhe Hardiman (0-4), Caoimhe Purcell, Carla Lennon, Emily Cahill, Emily Deveney (0-1), Emma Doyle, Jordan O’Brien, Laura McGarry, Orla Jackson, Orla O’Keeffe, Róisín Murphy, Sarah Lambe, Sasha Ní Laoghaire, Shauna Ryan (0-2), Sophie Blennerhasset (2-2).
