Bray ladies beaten by Gle­nanne

Bray People - - Bray Sport -

Bray 1, Gle­nanne 2: Bray ladies first team trav­elled to Tal­laght to face newly pro­moted Gle­nanne. Bray dom­i­nated the early play and with a well worked ball from mid­field player Ch­eryl O’Toole, Janet O’Beirne scored the first goal of the game.

A good start for vis­it­ing team who con­tin­ued to pres­surise, winning nu­mer­ous short cor­ners but were un­for­tu­nate not to cap­i­talise. Just min­utes be­fore half­time, the home side equalised the game.

The sec­ond-half saw Gle­nanne, spurred on by the lo­cal sup­port; pur­pose­fully play the game to their style of play. Bray de­ter­mined to re­cover the game, were un­lucky on many strik­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties. Half­way through the sec­ond pe­riod the home side got their sec­ond goal of the game. Not to be de­terred, Bray con­tin­ued to fo­cus and keep up the pres­sure but un­for­tu­nately they could not re­cover be­fore the fi­nal whis­tle.


Bray 0, Newbridge 0: Bray ladies sec­onds took on Newbridge last week­end in their last league game be­fore Christ­mas.

Newbridge started stongly with nu­mer­ous at­tacks on Bray’s de­fence. The Bray back­line fought strongly how­ever and pre­vented Newbridge from tak­ing the lead with ex­cel­lent per­for­mances by Tara Kelly, San­dra Doyle, Seon­adh O’Leary and Clodagh Ni Chearb­haill.

The op­po­si­tion did man­age a few shots on tar­get but goal­keeper Bar­bara Snow was solid in the goal and saved all their strikes.

Bray had some fan­tas­tic chances to take the lead with great work up through the mid­field by Adelle Adams and Tara Kelly which found the sticks of Bray for­wards Wendy Adams, Jes­sica Carey and Sinead Leni­han who were un­for­tu­nate not to take the lead for Bray.

Both sides bat­tled in the sec­ond-half ea­ger to score a goal but the score re­mained 0-0 at full time. Next week the sec­onds have their sec­ond round of the cup against North Kil­dare at their home ground in Loreto Bray.
