The Senior A’s had another convincing win in the League at home to Erins Isle last Tuesday. Tonight they travel to St Annes Park to face Raheny.
Well done also to the Senior B’s who produced their best performance of the year so far with a fine win away to Thomas Davis last Thursday. This Division is proving to be very competitive, so we’ll hope to kick on this Thursday on Pairc Ui Murchu when Raheny are the visitors.
The Senior C’s are also at home on Thursday in Sancta Maria with St Vincents providing the opposition.
All of the above games throw in at 7.30pm, support welcome!
On the Juvenile front the U16A’s had a good win away to Na Fianna last Wednesday, while the U14’s continue their 100% League record with a fine win over Skerries leaving them within touching distance of winning the League.
Congratulations to U16 player Kelli McLoughlin on reaching the semi-final’s of the National Boxing Championships last weekend. Well done also to dual player Emily Flanagan on her Leinster success with Dublin Ladies Football.
Tuesday 6th May Ballyboden St Endas Senior A 2-14 Erins Isle 0-4
Isle’s played with the aid of a strong breeze in the first half and started brightly with a couple of points. However the home side then took charge and picked off some fine scores. Jane Edwards & Rebeka Kamvar are displaying a good level of consistency for young players alongside Su Kennedy in the full-back line, and Jill Horan continues to provide good quality ball to the inside forward line. Ann Griffin also made a comeback from her recent injury. The result was never really in doubt, and a late goal put a fair reflection on the scoreline.
Team: Sile Nic Coitir, Jane Edwards, Su Kennedy, Rebeka Kamvar, Zenouska Murphy, Fiona Corcoran, Grace Walsh, Jill Horan, Sarah Nagle, Maria McGrath, Emer Lucey, Denise McGrath, Aoife Tobin, Orla Smith, Aisling O’Leary, Roisin Walsh, Ann Griffin
Thursday 8th May Thomas Davis 1-7 Ballyboden St Endas Senior B 3-9
A strong cross-wind on Kiltipper Road made for difficult conditions for both sides. An early goal for the home side gave them a boost, but Boden came into the game strongly as the half went on, getting their reward just before half-time with a fine goal by Aisling O’Leary to lead at the interval. In the second half Boden kicked on and picked off some terrific scores from a variety of players, running out comfortable winners in the end. If this level of performance can be maintained then this team has the potential to compete for honours at the business end of the season.
Team: Danielle White, Rebeka Kamvar, Jane Edwards, Rachel Walsh, Karen Murphy, Grainne Corcoran, Roisin Walsh, Grace Walsh, Aoife Tobin, Aisling O’Leary, Ciara Scallan, Zenouska Murphy, Iseult Kelleher, Ciara Dunne, Grace Maher, Laura Murphy, Aoife Barnes, Brid Rynne,
Wednesday 7th May Na Fianna 0-6 Ballyboden St Endas U16A 3-5
Midweek matches for this age-group always proved difficult, with time to Junior Cert getting closer, and travelling across the City never ideal. However, a fast start from the Boden girl saw 2 early goals give them a cushion that they never relinquished. The home side never gave up and put up a strong fight from start to finish. A third goal early in the second half put the result beyond doubt, and the Boden girls now have a break until the end of the Summer. If these girls put in the effort themselves over the summer months they can look forward to a competitive Championship campaign!
Team: Ciara O’Neill, Sarah Mulvey, Hannah Hyland, Claire Kirwan, Orla Tevlin, Eve O’Donoghue, Ava O’Shea, Laura Nagle, Sarah Lambert, Ciara Barnes, Emer O’Leary, Eimear Butler, Aoife Roche, Jodie White, Aine O’Brien, Aisling McCullough
