Ballyboden St Endas v St Brigids, Sunday 17th October 2021, Russell Park at 3pm
A home Semi Final was the reward for Ballyboden’s Senior A ladies last Sunday as our Ladies remained unbeaten after four games in the group stages of the Senior Championship. The girls finished strong with a 2:09 to 1:07 victory over a spirited St.Brigids side. Boden knew they had already qualified for a top four spot but were looking for a home draw which they eventually achieved after a great battle with the Castleknock side.
The hosts were quickest out of the blocks and led 0.6 to 0.4 at the break and but for a wonderful point blank save by goalkeeper Sarah O’Brien from ex Dublin star Noelle Healy, the margin could have been greater. Scores were hard to come by but points from Hannah Murphy and Natalia Hyland drew us level and a well worked goal,finished to the net by the latter, had us ahead mid way through the second half. This was short lived however as Brigid’s immediately responded with a goal of their own finished to the net by Leah Mullins. Player/manager Valerie Mulcahy restored the 1 point lead and probably the clinching of the game came when the alertness of Orla Scolard to intercept a wayward line ball ended with Maria McGrath slotting the ball home (be it at the second attempt!) Hannah Murphy and Valeria Mulcahy completed the scoring for the away side while Roisin Phelan, the former Cork star, popped over a free to leave the final score
Ballyboden St Endas 2:09 St.Brigids. 1:07
Scorers: Natalia Hyland 1:2 Maria Mc Garth 1:0, Valerie Mulcahy 0:3, Hanna Murphy 0:2, Alanna McGarry and Simmone Reilly 0:1 each.
