Dramatic last minute goal gets Boden over the line
A last minute goal from a retaken 21 yard free got Boden a dramatic victory over a very good Whitehall Team. Conor O’ Donoghue travelled the length of the pitch to see his first effort easily blocked. However, the referee ordered a re-take from the centre of the 21 as Whitehall, having been warned beforehand, moved off the line before the ball was being struck. Conor made no mistake with his second effort to give Boden a victory that looked unlikely as the physically stronger Whitehall team dominated long periods of the second half. Boden, to their credit, never gave up and when the chance was given, accepted with both hands.
Boden had to line out without some of our Senior stars, Luke Corcoran and Aidan Mellett, as they had other things on their mind. Great credit is due to the team who also had to do without a few of the Minor players who were also in action the following day.
Scorers for Boden: Shane Kennedy 0 05 (4 frees), Ciarán Cashman 1 02, Luke Basquel 1 01 and Conor O’ Donoghue 1 00.
Next game most likely in two weeks time.
The Under 21 B had a walkover and progress to the next round, also in two weeks.
