Bray Emmets 3-8 V St. Jude's 3-16

Bray led for much of the first half thanks to an Orlaith Whelan goal, but two late St. Jude's goals left them 5 points clear at the break with 2-7 to Bray's 1-5.  

A goal from Cathy Waters early in the second half put Bray back into contention but St. Jude's put together a long sequence of unanswered points to stretch their lead further. Some fine goalkeeping from Laura McCarthy with support from Naoise Concannon and Lauren Barry prevented any further St. Jude's goals however, whilst strong runs from Tara Brady and especially Aoife O'Donavan, who had a superb game, in midfield gave the forwards some ball. Orlaith Whelan, who gave another excellent performance at the front, availed of this to pick up another goal and a couple of points to claw back some ground. Unfortunately the late Bray pressure wasn't enough and it ended with St. Jude's 8 points in front.
