Bray Ladies 3rds travelled to Genesis for their second league match of the season and showed significant promise for the season ahead with a 2-1 win.
Determined to get 3 points on the board; Bray were off to a great start with some very promising team play, effective passing and super communication throughout the squad. Bray put significant pressure on Genesis’ defense within the first 15 minutes, winning two short corners. Bray’s efforts finally materialized before the end of the first half with a square pass outside of the D and a brilliant strike by Lara.
Bray continued to dominate in the second half but three green cards against Bray meant the team was down to 10 players for parts of the second half. Unfortunately, this led to a goal against Bray, despite all the hard work and great hockey by the Bray side, it was 1-1 with 10 minutes to go. However, some great passing down the line by Meg, Anna and Erika, carried the ball up to the D, where Rhona took a brilliant swipe at goal. The game finished up with a 2-1 victory with Bray getting their all important 3 points.
Special thanks to our brilliant coaches Meg and Phil and to Ruth for umpiring the game.
