LADIES - Bray Vets - Game postponed Div 2 Ladies : Bray 0 - 2 Old Alex Bray ladies firsts team faced Old Alex at their home grounds in Bray on Saturday. Bray started strong from the whistle and great attacks were set up by forwards Jessica Carey and Michelle Lambert.
The opposition keeper was kept busy and Bray were unlucky not to take the lead.
The Bray backline were consistent in their defence with Sinead O'Toole and Katie Burgess clearing all dangerous balls fed through by Old Alex.
A lapse in concentration just before half time saw Old Alex take a shot on goal which was cleared by Bray goalkeeper Laura Mc Carthy.
The rebound however found an Old Alex stick and they took their chance well to put the visitors ahead at half time.
Bray kept up the fight however and midfielders Lauren Kelly and Tara Kelly spread the ball wide to the forwards finding the stick of Cheryl O'Toole.
O'Toole hit a brilliant shot which unfortunately hit both posts and sprung back out into the circle.
Old Alex picked up the ball and attacked the Bray circle with an excellent shot which saw the game conclude with a victory for the visitors. Division 8 Ladies: Avoca 4 - 0 Bray Division 11 Ladies: game postponed
Division 7 Men:Bray 10-0 Weston In a completely one sided contest, Bray notched their second win of the season over a hapless Weston team that were run ragged from start to finish.
Sean Brennan put on a masterclass, finding the net six times and generally bossing play in midfield. In addition to Brennan's six goals, Cian Hussey, Jayson Kenney, Adam Brennan and Daniel Paul picked up a goal each for their efforts. Division 8: Bray 2 - 3 North Kildare: When you're three goals down at half time and two are pulled back, you know there was spirit and passion in that game - a spirit that is not typical of a Bray men's second team with such a large hill to climb.
Strangely, in the first half, Bray seemed the stronger of the two teams - but the right touch of the ball evaded them and North Kildare played a powerful game to score their three goals by out-flanking Bray's defense.
Cian Hussey gently tapped the ball between the keeper's knees for Bray's first score.
Closer to the end and there was nearly another goal but it deflected off the post for another missed opportunity.
But wait! Adam Moore, in the right place at the right time, caught it with a determined smack and it rattled off the back board. Bray found a second wind and a new will to win, but unfortunately the whistle came to soon for an equaliser.
