Cup Vic­tory

Bray People - - COMMUNITY NEWS -

Pride of place in the vil­lage goes to the Glen­cor­mac United U11 team who suf­fered the lows and highs in just 5 days last week. Last Tues­day, they faced Grey­stones in Ry­ders and af­ter a bril­liant dis­play, con­ceded a late goal in Ex­tra time to suf­fer a 1-0 de­feat and judg­ing by the tears in their lit­tle faces, you won­dered could they pick it up again for a cup fi­nal on Satur­day against the same op­po­si­tion.

How­ever, we should never have doubted that as they put in an ab­so­lute bril­liant dis­play to take home the cup with a 6-1 vic­tory in scorch­ing heat. Kieran Grif­fith gave the Glens the lead early but Grey­stones hit back to level mat­ters. Kieran then got on to a per­fect Michael Pren­der­gast cross to make it 2-1 at the break. “Ki” then com­pleted his ha­trick be­fore Michael Pren­der­gast added a fourth, then Kieran curled in a beau­ti­ful cor­ner be­fore Erica Con­roy coo­ley slot­ted away a late penalty to send the Glen­cor­mac team, man­agers and sup­port­ers into ec­stasy to win the cup. You could not sin­gle out any player on the day be­cause the whole team gave 100% and were so de­ter­mined to end the sea­son in style. Well done U11s and a huge con­grats and thank you to man­agers Lar Mer­ri­man and Colm Grif­fith (Bill and Ben) for all the work they put in through­out the sea­son from Early Septem­ber to end of May.

The Se­niors were the only other team in ac­tion and they were away to Grey­stones on Sun­day and suf­fered a 6-1 loss. This can cer­tainly be called a game of two halves as the Glens took the lead through a well taken Ga­van Ma­her strike and were in con­trol un­til con­ced­ing a late goal just be­fore the break. How­ever, for the 2nd week in a row, the glens fell apart in a very poor 2nd half. Five games to go and still 2 points needed to se­cure their sta­tus in the di­vi­sion so come on lads, keep work­ing hard. Luke O’Cal­laghan and Jack Moran were the best on the day last Sun­day.
