Christy Moorehouse hits 0-12 as Bray Emmets canter to Wicklow SHC crown

Bray led by 0-7 to 1-2 a half-time but then Carnew were to score only two further points

Bray Emmets 1-21, Carnew Emmets 1-4

A dominant second half display saw Bray Emmets claim a sixth senior hurling title in Wicklow as they defeated  Carnew in a very one-sided second half contest at Aughrim.

And it was Bray's number 14, Christy Moorehouse, who pointed the way to victory with a massive 12 point haul, nine of them from frees.

No one would have expected the game to turn out such a one sided contest as Carnew came out for the first half up for the fight and led for a period after Centre forward Wayne Kinsella had finished a long range free by Enda Donohoe to the net on 16 minutes (1-2 to 0-3).

However, Bray led by 0-7 to 1-2 a half-time but then Carnew were to score only two further points in the second half as the Emmets took complete control of the exchanges.
