Division 3 League
The Division 3 team maintained their excellent start to the season with a good win over Gortleterragh in Cornageeha on Saturday evening. Despite missing five regulars, the Bors were quickly out of the blocks and scored three goals in the first twenty minutes to leave Gortletteragh with a mountain to climb. The first came from Brian Conroy with Niall Mc Gowan supplying two. A penalty save from Bornacoola keeper Ollie Vaughan denied the home team their best goal scoring chance.
In the second period, Gortletteragh stuck to the task manfully and at one point had reduced a nine point gap to just four but Bornacoola steadied the ship in the closing minutes to run out 3-7 to 0-10 victors.
The team and scorers was: Ollie Vaughan, Brian Mallon, John Reynolds, Christy Bohan, Brendan Duignan, Richie Bohan, Dermot Shanley, Trevor Howard, Danny Canning, Bobby Shanley (0-2), John Bohan, Niall Mc Gowan (2-2), Robert Moran (0-1), Brian Conroy (1-2) and Brian Reilly. Subs used were Sean Ryan and Aiden Reilly while David Mulligan and Mervyn Howard completed the panel on duty.
The action switches to the Shield C Competition on Sunday, when we play Mohill away from home at 12 noon. Annaduff and Sean O Heslins are the other teams in this group.
The latest generation of young Bors gave a fine display on Easter Saturday when they took part in the first of a series of under 10 blitz's. With the sun beaming down many players made debuts as the Bors played four games against Aughnasheelin, Cloone, Aughavas and Kiltubrid. For the record the Bors finished the morning’s football with two wins, a draw and a defeat.
A strong traveling support saw many impressive performances with Luke Jones, Robert Beirne, Kevin Mulligan, Gearoid Mulligan, Michelle Hackett, Liam Jones, Sean Muldowney, Ronan Mulligan, Dillon Vaughan, Karl Mallon, Clara Reed, Cian Mallon, Shane Mallon, Jordon Cramp, Christy Sullivan, Oran Mc Guinness, Tanya Boyle and Aaron Hackett all featuring in the Black and Amber. (Apologies if any names were missed).
Our thanks to Aughasheelin GAA Club for hosting the blitz. A special thanks must be given to the traveling support who made the morning such a success for all involved and of course to trainers John Mc Guinness and John Reynolds for their contribution. Training is as usual at 11am on Saturday morning.
The mixed form of the 3rd team continued on Sunday morning when St Caillin’s proved much too strong for us in Fenagh. Final score 3-10 to 0-2 for the home team.
Our thanks to Mohill for providing a very useful outing for our senior team on Monday morning last. We play Aughnasheelin in our first game in the Shield A (played without county players) on Saturday next at 6.30pm in Dromod. The other teams in this Division are Kiltubrid, Allen Gaels, Glenfarne and Eslin.
16 LeagueWe’re due to play Glenfarne in Dromod on Friday evening in the U-16 league. Confirmation of the fixtures should be elsewhere in this edition.
