Bray 1, Pem­broke Wan­der­ers 3: Bray Ladies first team squad made the trip to face Pem­broke Wan­der­ers for their first away fix­ture of the Divi­sion 1 Le­in­ster league.

From the start, the ex­pe­ri­enced Pem­broke team used the home crowd to its ad­van­tage. Within the first 10 min­utes of play, the home side scored the first goal of the match, achieved from a well worked short cor­ner. Bray kept up the pres­sure, spurred on by their own de­voted sup­port­ers who had made the jour­ney to Ser­pen­tine Av­enue. How­ever it was against the run of play that Pem­broke ob­tained their sec­ond goal of the game. Not to be de­feated, Bray pre­served and fought their way back into the match.

Shortly into the sec­ond half of play, fol­low­ing de­ter­mined play by the vis­it­ing mid­field play­ers, Bray was awarded a short cor­ner. Linda O’Neill pre­sented Bray‘s cen­tre for­ward Stephanie Hall with great pass and Hall cap­i­talised, beat­ing the goal­keeper and plac­ing the ball in the Pem­broke goal.

The home team, with 10 min­utes of play to go, scored their fi­nal goal of the game. Bray now move on to play UCD at home this com­ing Satur­day. Bray 0, We­ston 1: Bray ladies sec­onds started their league cam­paign against We­ston on Satur­day. Mid­field were un­der pres­sure from their op­po­nents early on in the game and We­ston even­tu­ally break­ing through and scor­ing a goal just be­fore half time.

Next week Bray ladies sec­onds play host to Corinthi­ans at home. Bray Thirds 3, Sk­er­ries Sec­onds 1: With many new faces on this year’s Ladies 3’s the first match was a great start to the sea­son with a comfortable 3-1 win over Sk­er­ries Sec­onds. Kim Leonard, Su­san Cur­ran and Moninia May were on tar­get for Bray.

Sk­er­ries were awarded a short-cor­ner in the fi­nal min­utes scor­ing their only goal of the match. Bray 1, Old Alex 1: It was the first week back for the newly pro­moted Bray 4ths. Ea­ger to im­press Bray got on the scor­ing card in the sec­ond half with a well prac­ticed short cor­ner which saw cen­tre mid Aine Whe­lan score with a fan­tas­tic sweep.

Bray were in con­trol for the whole sec­ond half but were un­lucky to give a short cor­ner away just at the fi­nal whis­tle. Bray’s best player was Tr­ish Martin in goal who had a fan­tas­tic game.
