The senior team opened their campaign against Allen Gaels on Saturday evening last in Carrick. A close game throughout, the Drumshanbo side goaled just before half time to move into a one point lead. They doubled their advantage early in the second half, but Bornacoola held their nerve and helped by to two excellent points from Brian Conroy and a long range effort from David O’Connor we held on for a narrow victory.
The team and scorer was: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Jason Conroy, Shane Conroy, John Mc Guinness, Daniel Canning, Gary Mc Closkey, Michael Duignan (0-1), Mark Mc Closkey (0-7), Colm Farrell, Trevor Howard, Brian Conroy (0-2), David O Connor (0-1), Seamus Mallon. Sub Used: Robert Moran.
Our next group game is against St Caillins with the Bank Holiday weekend (August 5th/6th) the likely date.
Our thanks to Leitrim Gaels who provided a very useful workout for our Junior team on Sunday morning last in Dromod.
