In spite of a brave effort by all the girls, Boden were too strong for us on the day! We can blame it on the wind, our missing girls, our wounded but Boden were excellent in all areas of the field and deserving winners.  Boden played with the wind in the first half and notched up a good lead. With the wind in the second half in our favour we were hopeful of catching up but it wasn’t to be. Boden kept increasing their lead with point after point. Cathy was outstanding in front of goal as usual but we didn’t really threaten the score. The Cuala girls fought on in spite of all their injuries until the final whistle. It’s our first outing since the summer so things can only get better! It’s not a knock-out so we have now to win our next two matches against Crokes & Ballinteer to stay in the competition. Let’s hope we have all our players back  fit & healthy!
