Sin B team progress
Ballyboden Senior B hurlers won their Championship quarter final in a wet and windy Sancta Maria on 7th September 2013 against Kevins.
Playing against with the wind in the first half, Boden started well and a goal by Emmett Carroll after eight minutes put some daylight between the teams at the quarter. Boden did well in the middle of the field, winning a fair share of puckouts and breaking ball. Ben McEntee and Donal Butler in particular, worked in the middle third. A second goal by Naoise Greene after a strong run by McEntee left the half time score 2-5 to 1-4 in Boden’s favour.
Aware that Kevins would start strongly in the second half, the Boden defence were on high alert. This was typified when Conor Dooley made a superb save within two minutes of the restart. Darragh O’Gorman and Jamie Desmond organised the defence well and Boden tacked on a series of fine points. Ronan Cleary did a great sweeping job in the half back line and Naoise Maguire tidied up any loose ends in the middle of the field. James Roche and Conor Dooley kept the scoreboard ticking over with some well taken frees. In the last quarter, the Boden subs added strength to the home team and in the end they ran out winners on a scoreline of 4-17 to Kevins’ 2-4.
We look forward to the semi-final in a couple of weeks, where Naomh Mearnóg, Parnells or St Sylvesters will be our opponents.
