Bray L5s 1 - 0 Enniscorthy L2s
The first match into the season for the Bray ladies 5s against Enniscorthy Hockey club was certainly an impressive game.
The team rocked up at 12.50 to loreto, scrambled into our cars and set off to Enniscorthy!
Despite google maps attempting to lead us astray, we made it.
After a warm up and a team talk the game began.
As a new team, the first half was a bit shakey but nothing Bray couldn’t handle.
Ruby Stewart and Deirdre Keogh dominated the forward line and with a lovely assist from Jenny Hughes, Deirdre found the back of the net leaving Bray 1-0 at the end of the second half.
After a team talk at half time from Captain and Vice Captains Erika McNerney and Martha OByrne, Bray came back even stronger in the second half. Sweeper Martha keeping the ball away with Jess Barker, Catriona Nolan and Gina Archbold holding down the defence line.
Enniscorthy broke through the wall, attempted a shot on goal which was promptly stopped by keeper Erika.
A few short corners for both teams and despite Enniscorthys best efforts, the match came to an end 1-0 leaving Bray the winners.
Unbelievable first match back for the newest team L5s!
Match report with thanks to Erika McNerney.
