Boden Too Strong for Faughs – Long Fella Reports

BBSE 2 22 Faughs 0 16

“Never had so many tweets meant so much to so few” The Hurling Sec explained the scenario! “Boden need to win, but can only be assured of a quarter final spot if Cuala beat Crumlin by 8 points or more. Cuala win by less than 8 and more that two means we are gone. Less than two, means Cuala are gone!” But of course, Faughs had to be dealt with first!

Aidan Mellett shoots for a point 

Watching Boden on Saturday when coupled with The Twitter was entertaining for the sizeable crowd on the bank at O’ Toole Park. Faughs found the going difficult from the go. They had to wait until the 42nd minute for the their first from play. For Boden, Conor Dooley clearly left an impression that has an alternative life at the point of attack. His final tally of eleven points included five from play and 6 frees. Tally that with some productive assists. On stood out...a flick to Aidan Mellett in space saw Aidan finish to the net in syle. Mellett added a few points to leave 1 03 to his name. Boden’s  second green flag was a poach from James Madden after a slip by the Faughs goalie. He also added three points for a tidy tally. Elsewhere,  the experience of Keany and Lamber stood out. Also worth noting was the busy afternoon David O’ Connor had at midfield.

In defence, Luke Crcoran impressed and Stephen O’ Connor gave his usual solid and fluid performance. Shane Durkin also had some fine interventions on his first day out since the birth of his new son.  Substitute Niall Ryan put his name forward with a few well cragted team points.

Luke Corcoran breaks out

Overall, the game confirmed Boden’s good vein of form.  Cuala did beat Crumlin by more than 8 and Boden’s sights now set on the Quarter Final clash with Lucan. There will be no need for tweets the next day!
