Junior Championship
The Junior team sealed their passage to the quarter finals with an exciting one point victory over Leitrim Gaels on Saturday last in Annaduff. An excellent first half display, which saw the Bors lead by two points at half time despite playing into a strong wind, set the tone for the game. Leitrim Gaels battled strongly throughout the second half, but fine displays from Ollie Vaughan and substitute Damian Moran had the Bors four points clear with time running out. A late goal for the Gaels led to some nervous moments in the closing minutes, but ultimately the Bors held on for victory by 0-12 to 1-8.

Our Congratulations to Derek “Digger” Duignan who became the latest Bornacoola player to get engaged over the weekend. Derek has been in Australia for the last number of years where he met fiancée Renea who has been to Bornacoola on a number of occasions and left a huge impression on us all. Everyone at the club send their best wishes to the couple and by all accounts the Aer Lingus website went into meltdown on Saturday as the Bors began booking the flights for the big day. This latest news may finally bring an end to the infamous Adventures of Diggerman! Our best wishes to you both.
