Div. 1 Minor Ladies Football

Hard Luck to the Div. 1  Minor Ladies team as they were defeated by Kilmacud in the Championship Final last Sunday.

A case of so near and yet so far! Sunday 2nd November saw the eagerly anticipated  Division 1 Minor Ladies Football between Ballyboden St Endas and Kilmacud Crokes. These two team have dominated the 1996 age group since they first locked horns back in 2006.

Boden had the better of exchanges this year having comprehensively beaten their south side rivals earlier in the league. However a combination of injuries and illness meant that Boden we’re facing an uphill battle to finish their season in style.
Crokes had the wind at their backs in the first half and the game swung on a five minute period late in the half when they scored 3 goals in quick succession.

However nothing has epitomised this Boden team more than their never say die attitude and the large crowd in attendance were not surprised that the girls from Firhouse road actually won the second half. However they fell just short at the end and so the curtain came down on the last underage team from the Barry Coll school of excellence.

Indeed it is a credit to the foundation laid by Barry that many of these girls have already become mainstays of the senior team. When one looks at the 1997 and 1998 girls who have reinforced the squad, the team has really been strengthened in all departments this year. So although victory eluded them last Sunday, the future is bright for Ladies  Football in Ballyboden.
