U16 Ladies Football C2 Team complete League with a 5-6 to 1-6 win over Clontarf C
With some Boden girls missing, both sides fielded a reduced team of 13 girls last Sunday where Boden had the home advantage.The BBSE C2 team effectively managed the reduced team size on the Cherryfield pitch to give a solid first half display. Sarah Reynolds between the sticks saved well throughout and successfully directed play with long and accurate kick outs against a strong wind. Reva and Orla in the back line gave a confident defensive display to keep the opposition’s forwards at bay. They were ably supported in the half back line by Ella, Rebecca and Eva, with the girls providing a solid defensive support while also creating good go forward ball. Rena and Aoife at midfield covered huge ground both defensively and in creating good attacking runs.
A close fought game saw honours even for most of the first half until shortly before the end when a well worked team goal meant our girls went in at half time leading 1-3 to 0-3.
The second half started much the same as the first with the teams trading points. In the final quarter Ballyboden started to take control of the game. Sarah Brehony, Ciara and Aisling at half forward dominated, keeping the ball in the opposition’s half. Emma and Hannah in the forward line successfully cut through Clontarf’s defence. A goal blitz created by some very skillful football by all the team, saw the girls finish on a winning score of 5-6 to 1-6.
Well done girls.
