The Division 3 team maintained their excellent start in the league with a hard fought victory over Gortletteragh in Dromod on Saturday evening last. A goal from Declan Shanley early in the second half gave us a six point cushion, but two late Gortletteragh three pointers left us hanging on at the end for a nervous victory on a scoreline of 1-8 to 2-3.

Our congratulations to Bornacoola men Niall O Connor and Paul Hackett who starred for St Mel’s in their recent Leinster Junior Championship victory. Paul scored a vital goal, while Niall contributed a point in the Longford College’s victory.
Glenfarne/Kilty were the visitors to Dromod on Sunday and proved much too strong for a young Bornacoola side. Aidan Reilly did find the net for the home team, but the visitors ultimately enjoyed a comfortable victory on a scoreline of 2-15 to 1-3.

The U-16 team have been enjoying a rich vein of form of late and have qualified for the league final this Thursday against Drumreilly/Aughawillan at 7pm in Cloone. As always, your support would be greatly appreciated as the lads aim to capture the first piece of silverware for the club in 2006.
We are due to have a Minor league game this Friday. No details at the time of going to Press, so we’d ask you to check the fixtures section in this paper for details.
