Na Fianna’s Senior 2 Camogie team carried on from their Senior A team’s win against Boden earlier in the week with a hard fought 4-5 to 1-9 win against Boden’s Senior 2 Camogie team.
A “softish” Cherryfield pitch failed to dampen the championship like effort of both teams. The early exchanges saw both teams trade several points before an opportunistic Na Fianna goal midway through the half gave them the edge. Pointed frees from Áine O’Brien and Ciara Lambert together with a hardworking midfield of Ciara Barnes and Eimear Butler kept Boden in touch . However, they were left with an uphill battle after Na Fianna pounced for goals just before and after half time against the run of play to leave them 4-4 to 0-4 ahead.
Boden showed true grit however and further points from Ciara Lambert and Aine O’Brien followed by a goal from Ciara O’Neill made a real contest of it . However, despite dominating the closing stages led by Aisling Byrne , a strong half backline of Saoirse Hassett , Fiona and Gráinne Ní Chorcoráin and adding a further three points , Na Fianna held out for the win.
A gritty first league performance from all of the team who are learning with each match and now face Thomas Davis away this Thursday 19th April.
