The Ballyboden Ladies Senior B team had a good win over southside neighbours, Naomh Olaf, in the Cup competition on the Prunty last Wednesday evening (15th June).
Naomh Olafs had defeated the girls earlier in the year in League. It was a very good game of football with both teams playing fine attacking football however both teams were very wasteful in front of the goal in the first half. Boden however got 2 excellent goals from Hannah with Olafs converting some easy frees to stay in the game.
The half time score was 2 03 to 0 06
Boden played excellent football in the second half and dominated possession scoring 1:06 while keeping our opponents to 0:03. There is an old saying that goals win matches and in Hannah O’Gorman we are lucky to have a proven goal scorer whose 3 goals were the difference between the 2 teams. And while Hannah does not do points, she did score one on Wednesday only because Olaf’s keeper pulled off a brilliant save to deflect a goal-bound effort to over the crossbar.
Best for Boden were Elly in goal, Rachel, Aisling and Cliodhna in defence, Ella at midfield and Rebecca, Hannah & Sarah upfront.
Ballyboden ran out deserving winners on a full-time score of 3:09 to 0:09.
Team: Elly Rodgers, Amy Cunningham, Rachel Basquel, Kristine McGinn, Aisling McElvanney, Cliodhna Ni Sullivan, Ailbhe Christie, Aisling Gargan, Ella Browne, Shauna Feely, Chloe Murphy, Kiara Cunningham, Sarah O’Connell, Hannah O’Gorman, Rebecca Foley. Sub: Amy Brennan
Scorers: Hannah O’Gorman 3 01, Rebecca Foley 0 03, Chloe Murphy 0 03, Sarah O Connell 0 01, Kiara Cunningham 0 01.
