The lads started the game brightly and led by 0-3 to 0-1 after 10 minutes. The next fifteen minutes of the first half were all Drumkeerin and during this period they scored four unanswered points to lead 0-5 to 0-3.
Bornacoola then turned the tide with an excellently worked goal following great work by Mervin Howard in midfield to win possession for the Bors. Both sides then exchanged points to leave the score at halftime 1-4 to 0-6 in favour of the Bors.
The first 10 minutes of the second half were very even as both teams exchanged points but Drumkeerin did score an excellent goal to leave the lads trailing by three with 20 minutes to play. The Bors put in an impressive final 20 minutes both in defence and attack to lead by seven points entering the final minutes.
A last minute penalty for Drumkeerin pulled the score back to four but the lads had done enough to earn an excellent victory. Thanks to the large crowd who turned up to support but teams which added to the excitement of the game.
