Last-gasp Bromell goal earns draw for Bray

Bray People - - Sport -

Bray 1, Gle­nanne 1: Bray Ladies first team squad kicked off their open­ing match of the Divi­sion 1 league, host­ing newly pro­moted Gle­nanne.

HOCKEY From the start, Bray opened play with some im­pres­sive moves from their mid­field to for­ward line and cen­tre-for­ward Wendy Adams was un­lucky not to put the home side ahead early on.

How­ever it was the vis­i­tors, known for their re­silience and fast paced for­wards, who opened with the games first goal. Gle­nanne pur­pose­fully worked the ball up the pitch break­ing through Bray’s de­fence line and un­for­tu­nately, against the run of play, placed the ball in the home net.

Not to be de­terred, Bray came out a much stronger and fo­cused team for the sec­ond­half of play. New player Elaine Bromell was mag­nif­i­cent through­out and Bray were un­for­tu­nate not to cap­i­talise on some well worked passes from the mid­field player.

It was start­ing to look omi­nous for Bray how­ever they per­se­vered and kept up the pres­sure against the vis­i­tors.

Af­ter be­ing awarded a mul­ti­tude of short cor­ners for some very de­ter­mined play, it was through the pin­point ac­cu­racy of Bromell that saved the day just sec­onds be­fore the fi­nal whis­tle.

Bray will wel­come the re­turn of some key play­ers next week be­fore they take on an ex­pe­ri­enced Pem­broke side in Ser­pen­tine Av­enue.
