Lucan Sarsfields 1-4 Ballyboden U13A 6-5

Ballyboden U13s headed out to Lucan on Sunday afternoon to take on the strong challenge of Lucan on their home pitch. Both teams exchanged early points from placed balls with Clodagh pointing a 45 for Boden. The first half continued tight with Boden creating some neat scores with goals for Aine and Hannah & points for Ella McNair (2) and Leonie from great forward play. Lucan responded with a goal and 2 more points themselves and finished off the half camped in the Boden half but great defending from Emma Jane, Alice, Kate Lennon and the imperious Sadie kept them out. When Lucan did breach the defence a triple save from Shauna kept them out and the Boden girls finished the half with a narrow lead of 2-4 to 1-3.

The second half continued tight but the Boden defence continued strong with Leah, Shona, Megan Deignan and Megan Dignam dominating and great forward running from Caoimhe and Kate Donaghy converting defence to attack. The scoreboard started to lean in Boden’s favour with 2nd goals for Aine and Hannah and goals for both Ellas – McNair and Reid and another point from Hannah giving the girls a good lead. Again the goal was well marshalled this half by Sarah Gleeson and Lucan were restricted to a single point in the second half.

A final score of 6-5 to 1-3 gave the Boden girls a 3rd win out of their 3 league games.
