Soc­cer

Bray People - - Kilmacanoguediary -

AF­TER the can­cel­la­tion of the pre­vi­ous weeks fix­tures as a mark of re­spect to the Ry­der fam­ily, it was back to action last week­end for many of the teams. The 8s suf­fered a heavy 92 de­feat in Rath­new but yet played well. Os­car Wain­right Smith and Kevin Bushe got the goals with Ali­son Cahill and Laura O’Toole out­stand­ing along with goal­keeper Stephen Flynn who kept the score down with some fan­tas­tic saves.

The 10s con­tin­ued their great start to the sea­son with an 8-0 victory over Ark­low. James Cahill was on song in this one net­ting four times while Aaron Fitz­patrick hit a ha­trick with Ga­van Ma­her com­plet­ing the to­tal in a great team per­for­mance.

The 12s lost 6-4 in a thriller in Aughrim. Michael Boland scored twice with Dy­lan Brady and Mark Gal­lagher all scor­ing. Paddy O’Don­nell and Char­lie Lin­nane had great games but Martin Mol­loy de­serves all the praise for some fan­tas­tic saves in this one.

The 13s suf­fered a 3-0 de­feat away to Grey­stones. They started this game with only 9 play­ers and man­ager Paul Daly de­serves bet­ter for all his ef­forts than play­ers not turn­ing up for this game.

A big thank you to the clubs ‘Di­rec­tor of Foot­ball’ Paddy Har­vey who got three of his U12 play­ers back from Aughrim in time for the sec­ond half but the dam­age was al­ready done in the first. The 16s faced a tough one at home to Ark­low Town in the 2nd round of the Na­tional Cup and lost out 3-0.

How­ever, they put in a good dis­play with Dean O’Neill and Shane Far­rell out­stand­ing. The se­niors trav­elled to Aughrim and were dis­ap­point­ing in a 2-0 de­feat.

They trailed 1-0 at half time and things did not im­prove in the sec­ond half with Padraig and Shane Devlin the only ones to show any real form.

Hope­fully for­tunes will change this week­end as plenty ef­fort is still been put in on the train­ing pitch.
