The Senior team face into their third county semi-final in as many years when they travel to Pairc Sean on Sunday evening for a 6.30pm throw-in against 2005 County Champions Kiltubrid. The best of luck to all concerned and we hope there will be a large and colourful Bornacoola contingent present to cheer on the lads.
Junior C Championship
The Junior C team got their championship campaign underway when playing St Osnatts on Saturday last at the new Leitrim Gaels grounds in Leitrim village. Osnatts began with the wind and led by 1-4 to 0-1 at the break with Bornacoola’s lone score of the 1st half coming from the boot of John Shanley. In the second period, an early penalty goal put Bornacoola nine points behind and it seemed that the game had gone away from the Bors, but a great revival throughout the second half saw us come up just short as the North Leitrim team held on for a 2-6 to 1-7 victory as the Bors wasted a number of chances that might have won the game. There were tremendous performances from the likes of Sean Ryan, Paul Derwin, David Faughnan, David Mulligan and Kevin Mallon in the second half.
The Bornacoola team and scorers was: Pat Farrell, Paul Derwin, Shane Reynolds, Sean Ryan, Jackie Conboy, Brendan Duignan, Michael Farrell, Peter Mallon, Kevin Mallon (0-1), John Shanley (0-1), Declan Conboy, David Mulligan (0-1), Gerry Gearty (1-0), Feargal Mc Gill (0-3), Seoirse Reynolds. Subs: David Faughnan (0-1) and Mervyn Howard. The next game in the competition is in Annaduff on Sunday morning at 12 noon against neighbours Gortletteragh.
Our congratulations to Mary Mallon Snr (Cloncarne) who was named best dressed lady at Mohill Show on Sunday. No doubt Micheál was keeping an eye peeled for the very latest fashions from around the world over the last couple of months and played a key role in the outfit selection!
Well done to all the boys and girls from the club who received their leaving cert results last week.
