Bray Em­mets 2-5 AGB 1-6

BRAY EM­METS got their league cam­paign in Divi­sion 1 off to a win­ning start on Sun­day when they scored a home win over AGB.

This was not a great dis­play of foot­ball from ei­ther team, prob­a­bly ex­plained away by the fact that both teams were a bit ring-rusty af­ter the win­ter lay-off, also they were short many of their reg­u­lar Se­nior play­ers. AGB only recorded one score for the en­tire first half, a goal by Ja­son Earls, and they trailed Bray by 1-0 to 0-4 at half-time.

In the sec­ond half Bray Em­mets clinched the league points with two goals by John Hen­der­son and Stephen McNi­cholas whereas AGB were left to be­moan vi­tal missed op­por­tu­ni­ties, most no­tably Andy Bren­nan rat­tling a shot off the goal post and Gary Tyrrell pulling his ef­fort wide of the far post af­ter a good run.

Mikey Browne was sen­sa­tional for Bray as he lined out af­ter an ab­sence of two years. Re­lo­cat­ing from full-for­ward to cen­tre-back, he teamed up with the Mur­phy brothers Aaran and Cailean to form the best line on the field.

Bray Em­mets scor­ers: John Hen­der­son (1-0), Stephen McNi­cholas (1-2), John O'Ke­effe (0-2), Barry Cun­ning­ham (0-1).

AGB scor­ers: Ja­son Earls (1-0), Philip Healy (0-1), Niall Mul­let (0-5, three from frees and two from play).
