Carnew and Bray to face off in Ark­low

Bray People - - SPORT -

SEVEN TEAMS took part in the Wick­low un­der 14 hurl­ing Feile 2014 played in the Wick­low GAA Cen­ter of Ex­cel­lence, Bal­li­nakill on what was a very wet and windy Satur­day af­ter­noon.

The teams were drawn in two groups with Bray Em­mets, Michael Dwyer’s and Ark­low Rock Parnells in Group 1 and Avon­dale, Gle­nealy, Carnew Em­mets and St Patrick’s (Wick­low Town) mak­ing up Group 2.

Bray Em­mets stamped their author­ity on Group 1 with an ex­cel­lent win over the hold­ers Michael Dwyer’s.

Field­ing only four of last year’s win­ning panel the young Dwyer’s put up a very cred­i­ble per­for­mance but came up short in front of goal.

Dwyer’s then beat an equally young Ark­low Rocks team who found the wet windy con­di­tions very hard to come to terms with.

Bray rounded off the group games with a very im­pres­sive dis­play against the Ark­low boys.

Over on pitch two, Avon­dale were con­vinc­ing win­ners over the in­ex­pe­ri­enced Gle­nealy and St. Patrick’s teams while Carnew were clearly on song with com­fort­able wins over the Wick­low Town lads and then Avon­dale.

The semi-fi­nals saw Bray Em­mets come up against Avon­dale and Carnew Em­mets take on Michael Dwyer’s.

The Bray lads made full use of their first half wind ad­van­tage and stamped their author­ity on a tir­ing Avon­dale team, run­ning out easy 6-10 to 0-00 win­ners.

Mean­while on pitch two, Carnew Em­mets over­came some stub­born re­sis­tance from the Dwyer’s lads to record a 3-02 to 0-02 re­sult.

All of the teams can be very proud of their day’s work with some great skill and com­mit­ment shown de­spite what was very poor hurl­ing weather.

Bray Em­mets and Carnew Em­mets will now meet in the 2014 Wick­low un­der-14 Hurl­ing Feile fi­nal in Pearse Park, Ark­low on Wed­nes­day (to­day) at 7.15pm and if Satur­day’s per­for­mances are any thing to go by it prom­ises to be a hard fought and skill­ful en­counter.
