Another busy week on the rink as the season is in full swing. Monday last saw our Division 4 team at home to CYM and the lads took 5.5 points.
Division 5 were away in Rathmines to Leinster and got one point in testing weather conditions where history was made with three ladies playing for Bray following the decision of the BLI to allow ladies play in the leagues.
Stand up and take a bow Theresa Martin, Terri McKeon and Bernadette Tracey. Wednesday saw the ladies in Blackrock, and they got two points. Hopefully the tide will turn for the ladies when they get back to full strength.
Wednesday also saw a number of BLI Matches in the Boyd Cup with Owen Byrne and Roddy O’Leary claiming the scalp of the famed Garret brothers from Kenilworth. Alan Rath and Eoghain Brady put up a great fight against the strong duo of Gareth Pierrepoint and Colum O’Brien from CYM but they were overtaken in the end.
Also, in the same competition, Frank Devlin and Stephen Morris found the Dun Laoghaire pair of John Dundon and Anto Grey too hot to handle.
Thursday saw all four Vets teams in action with Vets 1 taking three points home from Leinster to maintain their unbeaten start. Vets 2 and 3 were at home to Shankill and North Kildare and both took all the points on offer where the two Colms, I.e. Clifford and Heaslip, were to the fore.
This Wednesday sees the ladies at home to Kenilworth. Thursday has Vets 1 at home to Westmanstown, Vets 2 away to Herbert Park and Vets 3 away to Greenhills.
On Saturday, June 8, our Division 1 team are at home to Pickie from Bangor, Co. Down, in the second round of the IBA Cup.
On the same day, Division 2 head to Drumcondra to take on Lerne on what is normally a tough grass rink. Monday, June 10, has Division 4 at home to Aer Lingus and Division 5 make the short trip to Blackrock. On Tuesday, June 11, Division 1 are back in League action at home to Dun Laoghaire.
As can be seen it is all action.
