Minor A Hurlers get back on track
An under strength Setanta due to players injured and not available to them on the morning travelled to Sancta Maria on Sunday morning where a fast flowing game ensued. Boden settled into the game with two early goals from Michael Boland and Darragh Maguire. Both sides traded scores and gave an exhibition on point scoring from open play with Boden leading at the break. The second half was played in a similar fashion and to their credit Setanta kept battling to the final whistle. Boden used their full complement of substitutes all of whom made a valuable contribution in defence and executing scores. Final score 4-22 to 2-16.
Team: Andy Lyons, Rob Leddy, Ruadhan Fanning, Jack Mahon, Owen Wigglesworth, Fergal Murray, Cian Murray, Cian Mellett, Rian Cannon, Oisin O’Duill, Darragh Maguire, Garrett Crowley, Conor Deane, Evan MacDonnell, Michael Boland. Subs Sean Brennan for Evan MacDonnell, Cian Kelly for Michael Boland, Neil Hester for Darragh Maguire, Ronan Dooley for Owen Wigglesworth, Matthew Normile for Conor Deane.
Minor B Hurlers in High Scoring Exhibition
Minor B’s put in a great performance last Sunday in a home game against O’Tooles. Ballyboden were always on top and there were good solid performances throughout, leading at half time by 1-11 to 1-3.
They continued their strong run in the second half with some fine scores from top scorer Mark McGee with a total of 2-3, Ruairí Kirwan (0-6), Conor Kennedy (0-4), Eoin Kelly (0-2), Rob Byrne (0-2) and points from Niall Cregan, Kevin O’ Flaherty and Séan McDonnell. The O’Tooles forwards found it very challenging to penetrate the half-back line of Sean O’Gorman, Peadar McMahuna and Luke O’Donoghue and inside Kevin Cronin gave another fine display of defensive skills. The work ethic paid off in the end with their third win out of six games, the final score being 2-20 to 1-7.
Oisín Carolan shows how it is done!!
