Venue Sancta Maria

Minor A's travelled to Sancta Maria to take on Ballyboden in the second game of the Championship

The team had a shaky start to their campaign against Lucan two weeks ago and were determined to improve on that performance. 

League leaders Boden were seen as formidable opponents but, as with Mayo, Crokes were not intimidated by the opposition and stamped their mark on the game from the start. At half time the visitors were 3 points up with the score line at 1-04 to 0-10

The second half saw Crokes heap plenty of pressure on their opponents, with several goal chances, but were finding it increasingly difficult to hit the target. They fought hard to maintain the lead but Boden kept the match close and levelled the game in the final minutes.  

Overall it was a very spirited performance by our Minors - something to be proud of
