With no game last week due to their scheduled game conceded by Naomh Mearnog, the Senior A’s return to action this evening at home to Na Fianna. Throw-in for what should be a tough contest is at 6.45pm on Pairc Ui Mhurchu.
The Senior B’s had a good win over Portobello last week, and aim to follow it up this week away to Kilmacud Crokes on Thursday evening at 6.45pm.
The Senior C’s went down last week in a close contest, and hope to make amends this Thursday away to St Brigids at 6.45pm.
We wish Doireann Mullany well on her recovery from her cruciate injury, and best wishes also to Ciara Ruddy & Claire King who recently suffered the same fate.
Ballyboden St Endas 1-10 Portobello 3-0
After a disappointing first outing, the Senior B side performed much stronger on Thursday evening against Portobello. With the benefit of an early goal from Sharon Glynn, Boden continued to press and were rewarded with some fine points. A couple of late goals for Portobello made the last few minutes more uncomfortable than necessary, but the result was never in doubt. Kilmacud are next up this Thursday, and management will hope for continued improvement.
Team: Danielle White, Karen Murphy, Jane Edwards, Grainne Corcoran, Rebeka Kamvar, Orla Keane, Roisin Walsh, Laura Burns, Aoife Tobin, Roisin Ryan, Grace Walsh, Aoife O’ Brien, Dianaimh Greene, Sharon Glynn, Jodie White, Aisling Keane.
Under 13’s enjoy trip to St. John’s of Belfast.
St. John’s of Belfast was the destination for the under 13 Camogie Squad last weekend. John’s provided a warm welcome and the long association between the two clubs was very obvious – many of the girls’ parents had visited Boden with their older children in both hurling and camogie and it was very apparent that they hold our club in high esteem.This set an excellent atmosphere from the outset, and it was clear that our day was going to be a great success.
On the field Boden played a mixture of the A and B squads (with guest appearances from a few footballers who came along for the trip !!) and rotated the bench regularly on what was a cold and damp pitch. Dominant throughout the first half Boden built a healthy lead with the help of a stiff breeze. A strong second half comeback by Naomh Eoin saw them finish one point winners.
St. John’s put on a great spread of food and Anne Jackson (Camogie Chairperson St. John’s) had a lovely few words of praise for our girls. Diarmuid Fitzgerald and Ciara Duffy (Captain for the trip) replied on behalf of Boden and invited the girls down in the near future.
The serious business of the game over the team headed to Dundonald for ice-skating, ten-pin bowling and a meal. An exhausted gang arrived back to the club shortly after nine.
