Boden notch up second win – An Fear Mór reports
Our Senior B hurlers recorded their 2nd win in their league campaign, maintaining their 100% record, by defeating Commercials hurling club on the all weather pitch in Sancta Maria.
Playing against the wind in the 1st half, our team played exceptionally well, restricting a very keen Commercials side to just 3 points with only 1 of these points came from play. Right across the field from 1 to 15 we played with great intensity, not giving the Commercials team time to settle on the ball. All players in this period, especially our entire defence hurled with skill and passion. A goal just before half time by the outstanding Morgan Ryan, gave us the lead at half time by the scoreline of 1 – 5 to 0 – 3.
Immediately after half half time,we continued to play very good hurling and a superb goal by Finn McDonagh plus a few well taken frees from Morgan Ryan put us into a commanding lead by the scoreline 2 – 8 to 0 – 4. However after that, the intensity that had been the hallmark of our performance faded and allowed a very competitive Commercials team back into the game. The fight back by Commercials resulted in them getting 4 goals in the last 20 minutes of play, making the final scoreline a much closer contest, than should have been the case. Nonetheless it was a great win for our senior B hurlers and provided that we can main our intensity, the team will improve further in the upcoming games.
