Bray 2.06 -Rathnew 5.05.
The Emmet's under 16 footballers started off the defence of
their under 16 Championship with a defeat away to Rathnew.
When the teams met in the North East League, the Emmet's won by 12
points but there was to be no repeat as Rathnew were the better
team on the night and deserved their victory. Rathnew
had the better start to the game and scored an early goal.
Mikey Lee got a goal back for Bray but almost immediately Bray
conceded another soft goal. The half time score was 1.03 to
3.03. The concession of easy gaols by Bray cost them the game. Bray
did finish the game well but went for goals when points were there
for the taking. A big improvement is needed for our next game
against Baltinglass. With the return of some of our players
from holidays there will be more competition for places. The
championship is run on a group basis where we have seven games to
play and the top four compete in the semi-finals. Best on the night
were Cathal O Dualleachain, Pierse Sweeney,( 6pts), Hugh
Douglais,(1gl). Luke Maloney and Mikey Lee(1gl) .
