Two late scores denied us our second victory in the Championship on Saturday evening, but a draw was a fair result in Cloone. John Mc Guinness scored a fine goal to leave Bornacoola ahead at the interval but a second half penalty for St Caillin’s brought them back into the game and ensured the scores were tied at 1-11 each at the final whistle.
We have now qualified for the quarter finals and await the outcome of the Aughawillan/Manorhamilton group to see who our opponents will be.
The team on Saturday was: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Jason Conroy, Daniel Canning, John Mc Guinness (1-0), Shane Conroy, Michael Duignan (0-1), Gary Mc Closkey, Mark Mc Closkey (0-4), Colm Farrell (0-1), Trevor Howard (0-1), Brian Conroy (0-3), David O Connor (0-1) and Seamus Mallon. Sub used Bobby Shanley.
Junior A Championship
An excellent performance from the Junior team on Sunday came up just short against Melvin Gaels and we had to settle for a draw in a game we probably should have won. Two goals for the North Leitrim men proved our undoing, but it was nonetheless a most encouraging performance and a final scoreline of 0-13 to 2-7.
The team on duty was: Gerry Gearty, Gerald Moffatt, Conor Mc Cauley, John Reynolds, Brendan Duignan, Brian Mallon, Jackie Conboy (0-1), Bobby Shanley (0-1), Richard Bohan (0-1), Feargal Howard (0-1), Niall Mc Gowan (0-8), Ollie Vaughan, Seoirse Reynolds (0-1), John Shanley and Aiden Reilly. Subs: Brian Reilly, Christy Bohan, Ray Hanley, John Bohan, Paul Derwin and Kevin Mallon.
The U-12 team played their first championship game against Cloone last week. Two points down at half time in a very entertaining game, Bornacoola put in a great second half display to run out winners on a scoreline of 4-7 to 2-5.

The U-12 girls team played their last two games of the competition against Dromahaire on Wednesday and Aughawillan (Saturday). Despite being ahead in both games at half time, we faded in the second half of each game and failed to gain a victory.
The ladies team completed their championship schedule with a defeat to Annaduff on Sunday. Well done to all the girls who put in a big effort over the last couple of weeks.
We’d like to extend the sympathies of the Club to the Bohan and Gannon families (Cloontumpher) on the tragic death of Fintan Mc Carthy in China last week. Fintan’s mother is Elizabeth Bohan. Ar Dheis Dé go raibh a Anam.
