Bray L2 1 - 0 Tullamore
Bray were confident stepping on the pitch against Tullamore on Sat but their confidence didn't show in their performance. A very uneventful first half with Bray looking sluggish and not at their best and Tullamore proving to be strong opposition and dangerous on the break!
A tough half time talk from coach Niamh and words of encouragement and motivation from captain Claire resulted in a much better performance in the second half. Great work between defence and mid field resulted in numerous short corners and goal scoring chances and Kathy and Claire P were unlucky not to score.
Bray were throwing everything they had at this game and finally following an excellent pass from Luca, Vicky picked up the ball on the end line, side stepped the keeper and scored with a reverse tap in. Screams of delight and relief on the pitch and the sideline, thanks be to Vicky!!!
Thanks to Ross for umpiring and all the supporters who braved the cold.
