Last Sunday the U16’s Ladies team supported by the U15’s travelled out to Swords to play Fingallians in a decider for the Division 2 League Title. This had the makings of a championship match a must win for Ballinteer to take the top spot. Players, mentors, parents and supporters were looking forward to a competitive game and hopefully a BSJ win.
Unfortunately the BSJ girls were slow of the mark putting us on the back foot with Fingallians scoring a goal and 3 points in the first 10 minutes. At half time we were down by 9 points.
A belief in each other, determination and fitness saw BSJ coming back into the game. Goals from Grace O’Shea and Katie Fearon gave the team belief and the supporters plenty to cheer about. Along with the goals great teamwork and effort lead to points scored by numerous players.
What a comeback with a final score of 2g 9p to 2g 7p in St Johns favor gave us the win we deserved and the top spot. With 9 wins out of 10, a total of 38 goals and 79 points we look forward to a great future for Ladies Football in BSJ.
