The ladies had a tough Tuesday night refix against top of the table Naas in Templecarrig! With 0-0 being the half time scoreline, it looked to be a gruelling battle. They came out with even more fight in the second half and Jessica Carey slotted home what was to be the only goal of the game! 1-0 Bray at the final whistle and they go back to the top spot!!
Bray Ladies 3's v Muckross 4's
(Ruth McDonagh x2)
Saturdays meeting with table toppers Muckross was a must win affair for Bray if they wanted to remain in contention for the league title. The game started with plenty of gusto and Muckross were caught on the back foot when a well executed strike by Ruth Mc Donagh hit the backboard. Superb play from Erika Duggan, Orla O Sullivan and Luca Dunne in midfield ensured that Bray dominated possession but, against the run of play, Muckross levelled the score just minutes before the halftime whistle.
A determined Bray side came out in the second half and solid defensive play frustrated all efforts by Muckross to break through. Then a great pass from Claire P found Ruth Mc Donagh's stick and she made no mistake slotting the ball past the Muckross keeper. The final 10 minutes were tense but the team really pulled together and showed great grit to hold on for a vital win and to keep them in the chase for the top spot.
A look at this weeks fixtures! The Ladies 1st XI will take on Naas in a top of the table clash tomorrow night in Templecarrig at 8pm so please be sure to head down and support!!
The very best of luck to all of our squads!

Ladies 2's v Muckross 3's
The L2 travelled to Muckross for their first match of 2017 and with the opposition sitting one point ahead of them in on 2nd on the table, this was a must win game!
Bray were without player/coach Huss as she had an exam to sit, but following the team talk from Jim O'Connor they took to the pitch full of determination and confidence.
The teams were very evenly matched and it was a very tight game. There was some excellent work in defence by Amy Carroll who stepped into sweeper in Huss' absence! Bray had a few chances in the first half, the most notable from a penalty corner. A great shot from Emer after a textbook manoeuvre from Amy Armstrong ended just wide of the post.
The second half saw some great play from Bray! Luca Dunne was outstanding in the midfield and played some great balls down the wing for Aoife, Laoise and Rhona.
Following some strong defensive play by Sinead O'Toole, Amy Buckley and Sle O'Neil, and a lovely ball from Honour Nethery, Kathy O'Toole finally powered past the Muckross sweeper. She heard Luca calling that Emer was free at the top, and after a fantastic pass from Kathy, Emer buried it in the top corner!
Bray settled and stayed in control thanks to great composure from Suzy and player of the match Niamh Byrne, who was rock solid at the back!
Fantastic result for the L2 who go ahead of Muckross and are now back into 2nd!
A massive thank you to Jim O'Connor for his endless encouragement from the sideline and Ann O'Connor for umpiring for us!
5-1 against @TRRHC out in TCG! 2 for Grattan Evans, and 1 each for Alan Lewis, @CianHussey & @jamiecrawford11! Epic work boys #gwanthebray
A solid 5-1 win for the lads as they took on Three rock in Templecarrig!

The very best of luck ladies!
Ladies 1st XI v Pembroke 3's
The Ladies 1st faced Pembroke at home today in a top of the table clash. The ladies trained hard in the cold weather this week in preparation for this big game. The team were without their coaches, Cheryl and Greg on the sideline but had the same motivation and help from Rachel Anglin, who made a huge difference. A minute silence was observed at the beginning of the match in honour of Peter Tipping. Our thoughts were with his family today.
Bray started off strongly attacking up the left side with Eimear and Jessie setting a quick pace for the game. Lottie controlled the play in the middle and hit a great ball into the circle for Charlotte winning our first short corner of the match. Unfortunately Bray couldn't hit the back board but continued to put pressure on Pembroke with constant movement up the right from Kim, Aisling, Ruth and Emily. Half time and the score was still 0-0.
In the second half bray continued to dominate with a solid back line of Sam, Kate, Rachel and Yani. Four more short corners were awarded but without the strike of Cheryl, none were put away. Amazing saves were made from our super goalie Laura to keep a clean sheet. The team never gave up with constant pressure up front and motivation from the sideline. The match finished 0-0 which was a great result for bray who took a much needed point away from Pembroke and are now second in the league.
Man of the match went to Lottie, who controlled the play brilliantly in the middle of the pitch.
The ladies will take on Naas in another tough match this Tuesday in Templecarrig at 8 and all support is welcome! Massive thanks to Niamh and Ross for umpiring as usual.
