U14 Football
Bray emmets Vs Éire Óg 
The U14 Footballers played Éire Óg, Wed 20th May in Greystones. Defense was solid from the start, creating the vital platform for scores to flow – and they did, culminating in a satisfying win. Sebastian Coleman and Oisín Hayde worked tirelessly, Conor Hardiman made fine saves, while Conor Dowling linked with the hungry forward division.
In the second-half, Mark Cullen contributed generously to the play-making, Josh Pyper proved that he has a lot to offer the side, while Michael Timmons and Rory Whelan performed in a full-hearted display.

U8 Camogie Blitz
Bray Emmets Vs Commercials & Kilmacud
Bray hosted the blitz and we had two great games against Commercials & Crokes. Both our games finished in draws but were both end to end games and very exciting. Commercials got extra skill points for their many pickup and  strikes and this geed up our girls to try and we got more than Crokes in the next game. Elise and Aine had two good games but a great team effort by all the girls. 
Foireann: Aine Hayde, Aisling O'Keefe, Ciara Lambe, Elise Burke, Grace Kennedy, Kate Butler,  Kimberly Kennedy, Naoise Sweeney McMaster, Niamh Canavan, Orla Fitzsimons

U8 Camogie Blitz Ballinacor
Bray Emmets Vs Avondale, Arklow & Glenealy
It was a beautiful Saturday morning for a blitz in Ballinacor's grounds in the Glenmalure valley, well worth the drive down. We were short on players but got to play 2 1/2 games. The half game was against Glenealy who struggled to get a team together so brought what appeared to be their U6 team! We won well against Avondale but came up against a very good Arklow team which we lost.  But a great effort by the six girls that made the trip. 
Foireann: Aine Hayde, Katie Curran, Kimberly Kennedy, Lili Neilson, Naoise Sweeney McMaster, Olivia Gibson

U10 Camogie Blitz Ballinacor
Bray Emmets Vs Avondale & Glenealy
Together with our U8 team we travelled to Ballincor for this blitz. This was predominantly our U9 team and with no subs there was no rest for anyone. A draw against Glenealy in the first game was a great result. Avondale though were a stronger team and the girls had to work hard to defend our goal but we couldn't hang on. Well done to the two Lucy's in their first Camogie matches. 
Foireann: Cara Mahony, Emily Ryan, Katie Quinn, Lucy Gibson, Lucy McGrath, Jasmine Kennedy, Saibh Smierciak, Tara Maher
