The Senior Ladies had a great start to the 2017 League campaign with a 12 point win over St Brigids in Russell Park last Wednesday.

Against a strong wind, an energetic start saw St. Brigid’s take a two point lead within 3 minutes. Ballyboden started their scoring a minute later when Emily Flanagan hit the back of the net after some good set-up work from Maria McGrath. Maria started her scoring a minute later, this time set up by Katie Murphy. As the first quarter ended, Ballyboden started to find their rhythm and a goal from Katie Murphy and further scores from McGrath and Sinead Burke amongst others saw Boden finish the half leading 2-8 to 0-4.

Boden carried their momentum into the second half, scoring in the second and third minutes to extend their lead. Scores from Mairéad Luttrell and Deirdre Lawless and a final converted free from Maria McGrath secured the win for Ballyboden with a final score of 2-13 to 0-7.

The Senior As next outing is in the league next Wednesday, 12th April against Leinster Champions Foxrock Cabinteely. Throw in is at 7pm in Kilboggett Park.
