A late surge in our Shield A game against Glenfarne wasn’t enough to secure the points, as the concession of three first half goals ultimately denied Bornacoola their second win in the group as the visitors triumphed on a scoreline of 3-4 to 1-8. An excellent Senior debut from Declan Shanley saw him score 1-2 and the Shield has proved very useful in this regard as the likes of Christy Bohan, Ollie Vaughan and Damian Mc Gowan have also been able to cut their teeth at senior level over the past few weeks.
The team on Saturday was: Ollie Vaughan, Brian Mallon, Jason Conroy, Damien Mc Guinness, John Reynolds, Daniel Canning, John Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Bobby Shanley, Trevor Howard, John Bohan, Brian Conroy, Mark Mc Closkey (0-5) and Feargal Mc Gill (0-1). Sub used: Declan Shanley (1-2)
1000 Points Challenge
Our underage players turned out in great numbers on Saturday to take part in the 1000 Point Challenge. The fundraising drive for the young players was well supported again this year and with special thanks to the parents who braved the elements on Saturday morning to cheering on the young Bors.
Please note that there will be no underage training this Saturday morning.
The Division 5 team have been enjoying a rich vein of form recently and recorded an excellent victory over Gortletteragh on Sunday last on a scoreline of 0-12 to 1-5.
