Senior Match report.Boden 3-11 St Vincents 1-11
On Sunday our Seniors travelled to newly crowned All-Ireland Club Champions St.Vincents in their third League outing. Before the match began the Ballyboden men showed their class with a guard of honour in recognition of Vincent’s achievements the previous week in Croke Park, it was really nice to see. The game began with the wind in favour of the home team and they started the brighter and raced into a 2 point lead in the opening minutes. Ryan Basquel pointed from a free in the 4th minute but it wasn’t until the 28th minute that Boden got another score as Vincent’s raced away into a 0-07 to 0-02 lead. A number of missed frees was proving costly but we ended the half strongly with a dynamic Michael-Darragh MacAuley run who provided Ciaran Archbold with the games opening goal. Half time score 0-07 to 1-02 to the home side.

Junior B’s match Report. Boden 1-5Parnells 3 -9
The Junior B’s suffered a disappointing opening home defeat to Parnells on Sunday afternoon at PUM. Even with the luxury of twenty nine players togging out Boden were unable to raise their game sufficiently to combat in all honestly an average Parnells outfit.Despite an encouraging start where the Boden midfield dominated an early gilt edge goal chance wasn’t taken that would be an ominous sign for the remainder of the game. Parnells grabbed what can only be described as two fortuitous goals and took a commanding lead. Boden rang the changes and having learnt a corner back who will remain nameless was out till 6am on Saturday night enforced further substitutions before the break. Boden showed some desire in the second half but it just didn’t happen. An interesting highlight was the Parnells corner back receiving a second yellow from the referee and despite no sign of Kieran Gibbs stayed on the pitch. When this was pointed out to the ref, Parnells shrewdly made the substitution. The Boden performance was probably typified by a late 45 narrowly missing Ned in the bar (it was that wide!) Hopefully this match was only a blip as the potential within this panel is very strong and it is expected the next league game will banish the hangover…
Lots of work to do…. When it is not your day it is not your day!
