Darcy points the way as Ti­na­hely see off Bray

Bray People - - SPORT -

lead by 0-12 to 1-4 by the break. Darcy also scored a bril­liant point from a line ball.

While Des Kelly had added a point and Niall McGraynor had scored two points for the Bray men, the home­sters were gain­ing in con­fi­dence and had fur­ther scores from Tony Darcy 0-3, Padraig Mur­phy 0-2, Brian Walsh 0-2 and Stephen Dillon 0-1. In­deed on the verge of half time, Bray did well to es­cape a Ti­na­hely goal when it ap­peared in­evitable.

Ti­na­hely be­gan the sec­ond pe­riod as they had fin­ished the first, with Stephan Dillon fir­ing over a point af­ter 30 sec­onds, with a shot that clipped the top of the cross­bar.

Points from Des Kelly and Mikey Browne kept Bray in the hunt but when Brian Walsh, Padraig Mur­phy and Alan Dillon added points in quick suc­ces­sion, it was be­com­ing clear that the home­sters had their tails up and were un­likely to be caught.

Alan Dillon again and Tony Darcy with three points in a row com­pleted the Ti­na­hely tally. For Bray, Niall McGraynor with 0-3 and Des Kelly with a fur­ther 0-2, bat­tled man­fully but this was Ti­na­hely’s day.

Ti­na­hely will be very pleased with their dis­play just a few weeks out from cham­pi­onship. Their for­wards put up a very re­spectable tally and Tony Darcy cer­tainly knew where the posts were and was a con­stant thorn in Bray’s side.

Bray Em­mets started well and they seemed anx­ious to find Mickey Browne as of­ten as pos­si­ble early on.

He scored a fine early goal but as the game wore on, Brian Walsh and Wil­lie Dillon gained con­trol at mid­field and this re­duced the Bray sup­ply.
