We qualified for the County semi-final for the fourth successive year with a hard working victory over Melvin Gaels in Pairc Sean on Sunday last. The Gaels got off to a great start with a goal and a point in the opening couple of minutes but an excellent goal from David O Connor helped the Bors to settle and we recovered well to lead by a point at half time. An injury to Philip Howard made the job even harder as the second half began, but some well taken scores ensured a 1-9 to 1-6 victory and a semi-final meeting in a fortnight with Kiltubrid.
The team on Sunday was: Gerry Gearty, Seamus Mallon, Morgan Shanley, Jason Conroy, Conor Mc Cauley, John Mc Guinness, Niall O Connor, Michael Duignan, Colm Farrell, Trevor Howard, MJ Winters, Robert Moran, Philip Howard, David O Connor and Mark Mc Closkey. Sub used: Jonathan Duffy.
