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.
