Much work to do despite good win

BRAY GOT their season off to the best possible start with a win over St. Brendan's at home.

The hosts took the game to the visiting side early on, dominating possession and posing a serious threat every time they got inside the opposition 23 metre line, however Brendan's struck first on a counter attack, stunning the home side in the process.

Bray got even moments later through Steven Jones and soon after Cian Hussey notched his first of the year to go 2-1 up.

Sadly, yet again Bray were caught on the counter and went into half-time at 2-2. The home side shored up defensively in the second half and took the game by the throat as Chris Willoughby netted just after the break and when Steven Jones bagged his second of the game the points were all but sealed.

A late reply from the visitors was cancelled out by a great deflected goal from Adam Brennan but all in all Bray deserved the three points for their general domination in this game.

There is still much work to do if Bray are to challenge, as they would expect to, for promotion this season but there are many positives to take from this which can only help their confidence going forward.
