U17 Women Runners-Up in Shield


Bray's Under-17 Women came up short at the final hurdle this week when they succumbed to the Donegal Women's League in the Shield Final in Oriel Park.

Aoife Mohan
Player of the Final

A tight first half ended in the worst possible way for the Wicklow girls when Donegal captain Aoife Gallanagh netted against the run of play on the stroke of half time.

Try as they might, the Bray ladies could not break through a stubborn defence in the second period, the intensity of their play indicated by the award of player of the match to Aoife Mohan, something that rarely happens to a losing player.

Playing in a Final was nonetheless a fitting end to a very successful début season for the Bray Women's Under-17s, many of whom will be stepping up to Under-19 next season.
