Senior Hurling

Bray Emmets v Glenealy . 1-19 - 11

senior hurlers.jpg

With most of the positions now filled on this team, this would be one of the last chances to make your claim to a spot, however with Peter Kiely away and the Cunningham brothers and Daire Lohan still injured, the opportunity is still there for some lads to grasp the nettle. With the business end of the league/championship looming a good win over our rivals Glenealy would secure a semi-final spot for us and maybe retain the Kavanagh Cup at the same time.

A lovely evening in Aughrim and this game was set up to be a cracker, Danny Staunton opened the scoring for the Glenealy boys and after a ropey first 6 minutes, having missed a couple of great chances, it was Padge Doyle who struck with brilliant individual goal, Nugent and Staunton added another point each, to leave the score 1 goal to three points, this was to be the closest Glenealy would get to us because after that our boys virtually took over, Mikey Lee back in great form, firing over frees and scoring freely with his comrade in arms Christy Mooorehouse showing all the skills and movement he possesses adding two points from play and new comer Enda Forde chipping in with a point, at this point we lead 1.8 to 5 but Staunton  fired over three frees one after another to leave to score 1.8 to 8 at the break.

 Our back line were really hurling well at this stage and had the upper hand, were it not for some needless frees the score board would have told a different story. The half time break gave John Henderson a chance to right to ship and reorganise things, we exchanged three points each, Christy with two frees and Cathal O’Dualachain a point from play, bringing the score, 1.11 to 11, it was at this point Cian O’Byrne was introduced for Eoin McCormack and Ben McCormack for Peter Walsh, this brought a new approach to the attack with some lovely link-up play and things began to flow, Darragh Henderson who was giving the full back spot, was completely on top, his brother John also back to good form and dominating, as were Lukie Maloney and Aran Murphy clearing ball after ball, Enda Forde playing his best game to-date, Mark Lennon and Diarmuid Masterson running at the Glenealy defence and causing all sorts of problems.

The points were notching up as we added 8 points on the trot, with no reply from the village despite introducing Wayne O’Gorman and Enna Glynn to the attack early in the second half. A good win for the boys and puts the three in a row back on track, none the less nice to see a big change in attitude and determination is great, more work to be done and nothing won yet. The final score 1.19 to 11, many thanks for all the support and the dream lives on.

Team:  Peter O’Reilly, Phil Collins, Darragh Henderson, Luke Maloney, Aran Murphy, John Henderson, Peter Walsh, Enda Forde(1), Diarmuid Masterson, Mark Lennon, Eoin McCormack, Padraig Doyle(1.), Cathal O’Dualachain(1), Mikey Lee(8), Christy Moorehouse(7) Cian O’Byrne, Ben McCormack(2) Gearoid Murphy, Darragh Maloney, Eoin Mason, Conor McNally, Conor Doherty, Ronan O’Brien, Karl Lacey and Seanie Maloney.

Intermediate League/Championship

Bray Emmets v Kilcoole

The Lacey Furlong cup has returned to the cabinet up in Emmet Park for another year, with a convincing win over Kilcoole last Tuesday night, we have retained our league crown. The last match of the intermediate league v Kilcoole, last year’s Junior A champions went ahead last night, and despite home advantage the boys from the Goosebank just couldn’t contain our lads who went about getting the win right from the start. 
Gearoid Murphy, who was outstanding on the night, fired over two points, one from a free and the other from play, and before we knew it, we were 1.6 to no score up, Gearoid also adding the goal. We were in complete control in this half, with Karl Lacey, Paul Barry, Jordan Lee, and Seanie Maloney rock solid at the back, Liam Kenny, Brick Walsh, and Gearoid too hot to handle up front. There is no shortage of talent in this squad and picking a team for the semi-final is sure to give Mick and Pat a headache, if everyone is available. Philip Collins, Tim Devine both played their first game at this level and did well, Matt Thomson who was celebrating his 21st birthday on the night also made a good impression. 
At half time we lead 3.10 to 3 points and it was time to give some of the subs a run out, Brian Duggan was replaced by Paddy Lee, and Matt made way for Tim Devine.

Kilcoole did make a game of it in the second half, Ronan & Eoin Keddy winning the battle at mid-field and Ciaran Doyle doing well at number 6, however goals from Liam and Tim left the result in no doubt, Fintan Donnelly did fire two goals past Peter O’Reilly but it just brought respectability to the score line that finished 5.12 to 2.13. Mick Hagan was very complementary towards Bray, recognising the fact that we were unbeaten in the league, and to Kilcoole for a very sporting game, presented the cup to Darragh Maloney for the second year running. 
A special word for Jackie Napier who was unable to attend the game and missed the photo but I am sure he will be back on his feet in no time. Many thanks to Peter Walsh who took charge of the warm up, Cameron who got the boys strapped up and Colm McDonagh who once again had everything ready for the boys before the game, to Hendo, Ciano and Shane for the water and most of all to all the supporters who follow our teams with such great pride.

Team: Peter O’Reilly, Paul Barry, Sean Maloney, Ned Keating, Jordan Lee, Peter Conroy, Karl Lacey, Philip Collins, Darragh Maloney(capt)(1), Neil Doherty, Matt Thomson, Gearoid Murphy(2.8), Brian Duggan, Liam Kenny(2.1), Brick Walsh(2), Paddy Lee, Tim Devine(1.), Enda McHugh, Barry Cowan and Conor McNally.
Unable to play on the night were, Ronan O’Brien, Willie Keane, Ben McCormack, Shane Lohan, Cathal Reddin, Liam Benville and Cathal Magee.
