The Under 13 Ladies B team traveled to Erins Isle on Saturday for their 2nd championship match.
This was truly a game of 2 halves. The home team totally dominated the 1st half with Boden rarely getting into the oppositions half of the pitch. Emily and Alison along with Loaise Cahill, Sienna Murphy and Ella McCabe were doing their best against the strong Erin Isle defense. Karla was all over the pitch marking their best player. Allie Nealon and Eabha Ryan were playing well at half back.
It was only for the fullback line of Issy Anslow, Lucy ( Birthday Girl) Gardner and Ellie Mulroe and Goalkeeper Charlotte Charlotte that we were only 4 points to no score at half time.
The Girls were not happy at the way they played in the 1st half and they promised to try harder in the second half and win every ball.
After a few changes and oranges from Nicola Byrne the the Game restarted with Eliie and Maya in Midfield and Captain Kate moving to centre forward. Ellie won the throw in and was fouled and a free was given to Boden the ball was played forward with some nice hand passing and Kate kicked a good score. The ball didn’t leave the Erins Isle half for the next 15 mins. The Boden girls played like demons scoring 3 – 8 from play and 1 point from Rachel Lawlor form a free. Ruth Ryder was now playing well in the forward lie. Grace Callen was now feeding the ball to Kate Brosnan and the inform players Rebbeca (Bexter) Ryan and Ciara Allen all scored 1-2. Erins Isle didn’t give up and scored 4 points and had goal chances as well but Charlotte was cool in the Goal. Lauren Byrne and Grace Callan were doing well in defense along with Corrine power who is getting better with every game and Allanah Doherty was winning every ball and centre half back.
The game ended in a win to Boden
