Ballyboden senior ladies enjoyed a very successful day at the All Ireland Sevens in Naomh Marnóg by winning three games drawing one and losing their last game in the quarter final to the eventual winners Kilerarin Co Galway.
Boden lined out with a mix of youth and experience : Rachel Nugent, Elaine Mc Grath, Aoife O Brien, Sarah O Brien, Cathy O Neill, Sinead Crowley, Grainne Archbold, Niamh McMahon, Katie Murphy, Emma Grey, Sinead Ryan, Alisha Fitzpatrick. These girls can be rightfully proud of their performances throughout against some tough opposition.
Game one Boden 7- 4 ; Maynooth 3 – 5
Game two Boden 0 – 7; St. Brendans Galway 1 – 4 (draw)
Game three Boden 5 – 9 ; Breda (Co. Down) 0 – 0.
Game four Boden 5 – 3 ; Errigal Chiaráin (Tyrone) 0 – 8
Game five Q. Final: Boden 1 – 2 ; Kilearin (Galway) 7 – 3.
The outstanding performance was saved for game four when a quality Errigal Chiaráin side were outplayed and kept goaless throughout. The girls applied to the tactics to perfection while at the same time playing superb possession football.
Well done on a memorable day. Thanks to parents who came out to support and help out on the day Declan O B, Mike, Nuala, Peter. Congratulations to Naomh Marnóg on an excellently organised tournament. Menotors Derek, Seán, Declan O R, Pat.
