Melvin Gaels were the visitors to Dromod at the weekend for our third league game of the year and it was the Kinlough men who dominated the first half and were worthy 0-7 to 0-3 leaders at half time. The Bors rallied strongly in the second half and levelled the game in the closing minutes, but again the North Leitrim men managed to find a little extra and closed out the game with three late scores to secure a 0-13 to 0-10 victory.
The Bornacoola team was: Gerry Gearty, Seamus Mallon, Morgan Shanley, Jason Conroy, Daniel Canning, John Mc Guinness, Conor Mc Cauley, Michael Duignan, Gary Mc Closkey, Trevor Howard, Colm Farrell, Niall O Connor, Mark Mc Closkey, David O Connor and Philip Howard. Subs used Shane Conroy, Damian Mc Guinness and Brian Conroy. Our best wishes to Danny Canning who suffered a recurrence of a knee injury in this game. We hope to see him fit and well in the near future.
We made the short journey to Annaduff on Sunday afternoon in Division 3. The home side were much the sharper team in the first half and were good value for a 0-6 to 0-3 half time lead. However, Bornacoola enjoyed a much better opening to the second half and midway through had levelled the game at 0-6 apiece. A goal for Annaduff and a disallowed green flag for Bornacoola ultimately dictated the outcome of the game as Annaduff tacked over some nice scores in the closing five minutes to secure a 1-12 to 0-7 victory.
The Bornacoola team was: Feargal Mc Gill, Sean Ryan, Seamus Mallon, Gerald Moffatt, Paul Hackett, Niall O Connor, Brian Mallon, MJ Winters, Colm Farrell, Declan Shanley, Sean Mc Keon, Ollie Vaughan, Aiden Reilly, Brian Conroy and John Bohan. Subs Used John Shanley, Alan Croghan
