A tough task for the lads on a cold windy day on the all weather in ballinteer.

The home team started well reeling off 5 points without reply. Boden dug in and started to convert a few chances off their own with jack larkin scoring a penalty to level proceedings. the game ebbed and flowed with both teams exchanging scores and boden leading at half time 3.03-0.09.

The wind now blowing hard favoured ballinteer but again bodens defence stood firm limiting the ballinteer forwards to forcing shots from distance while creating chances themselves. Luke O Hanlon in goal was very busy but showed his class with a string of saves however the pressure showed and ballinteer ran out winners 2.18-3.04.
