Our under 16 footballers finished off their North East
League games with two wins last week, which meant that they
finished top of the league, with 9pts from 5 games. On Monday
11th May, they had a victory away to An Tochar after a battling
performance from the home side.
The game was close at half time, but with the advantage of
the wind, Bray pulled away in the second half. Two second
half goals by Mikey Lee, 6pts from Pierce Sweeney and 1.01 from
Muiris O Floinn set the team up for victory.
On Wednesday 13th May we had a home game in Old Connaught
against previously unbeaten Rathnew. Rathnew had a good start
in the game and led by 4pts to 1. A goal by Mikey Lee settled
our team and we played some nice football for the remainder of the
game. The return of Hugh Douglas from injury, and the
introduction of Chris Lyons also helped the whole team to up their
performance. The scores were close at half time, 2.02 to 6pts
in favour of Bray but again with the advantage of the wind, Bray
pulled away with goals from David Sullivan and Hugh Douglas.
Special mention to our goalkeeper Tadgh Dornan and his
backs who have played well throughout the league.
