Na Fianna V’s Ballyboden St.Endas Senior A Championship

29th September 2019 in Na Fianna GAA club

Na Fianna 1-09, Ballyboden St.Endas 0-14,

The Boden girls secured their place in the Senior A championship semi-finals with this well merited win over Na Fianna. The team got off to a good start slotting over 2 points in quick succession. Na Fianna responded with a couple of points of their own and then scored a goal from close range to lead at half time 1-6 to 0-7. Na Fianna pushed their lead out to 3 points early in the second half with a well taken score. The Boden girls never panicked however, and they upped their intensity and work-rate and began to dominate the game. One by one they picked off points to level the score but to their credit Na Fianna broke quickly to score a point to re-take the lead.  However, the Boden girls were beginning to get on top in key areas of the pitch and were dominating both possession and territory. Having a goal disallowed did not deter them and they pushed on to score another 4 points to lead by 2 approaching the final whistle. A goal-bound shot from a last minute close in free by Na Fianna to win the game, was expertly saved and cleared by the Boden defence. At the final whistle there was relief and joy all round at having survived a late rally by Na Fianna and having now progressed to the semi-finals.

Last round game V’s Ballinteer at 10am this Sunday at home in Pairc Ui Mhurchu, so please come out and support our girls as a WIN will give us home advantage in the semi-final.
