Bray 2.09 - St. Patrick's Wicklow 2.05.
Our under 16 footballers got the better of St. Pat's after a
close game in the N/E League on Monday 20.4 in Wicklow. Bray
got off to a good start with a goal from Muiris O Floinn but Pats'
replied with a goal that was gifted to them by a Bray
mistake. Bray scored another goal from a penalty, converted
by Pierce Sweeney but St. Pat's fought back and the score at half
time was 2.04 to 1.03 in favour of Bray. Adam Conway, who was
returning to the team after injury, scored two points early in the
second half which seemed to be putting the Emmet's on top but again
St Pats fought back and scored a goal which narrowed the gap to two
points with five minutes remaining. Bray rallied with two points to
earn their first win. All the backs played well with Philip
Haughton playing particularly well on his return from injury.
The midfield and forward players are creating chances but are not
converting those chances into scores. They will be anxious to
change that in their next match against Arklow
Gers/Ballymoney. Scorers: Adam Conway, 7pts, Pierce Sweeney
1gl, Muiris O Floinn 1gl, David Sullivan Nicky Sweeney 1pt
each. Team: Tadgh Dornan, Cormac O Meadhra, Patrick Tunney,
Cathal O Duilleachain, Paidraig Hogan, Philip Haughton, Enda
Molloy, Pierce Sweeney, Dan Mc Cann, Luke Maloney, David Sullivan,
Daire Lohan, Muiris O Floinn, Nicky Sweeney, Adam Conway, Jim
Doyle, Nathan Cardin, Diarmuid Masterson. Training continues
on Monday and Thursday at 6.15pm for Football and Hurling.
