An understrength Bornaccola enjoyed an excellent three point victory over Aughawillan on Saturday last in Division 1 of the Masonite Senior league. The Bors lead through most of the game, but a late surge from Aughawillan almost yielded a draw for the visitors as a last minute penalty came back off the post as the Bors held on for a 0-9 to 0-6 victory.

The U-14’s played Kiltubrid on Friday evening, and produced a terrific second half display. Unfortunately their territorial dominance in that period wasn’t reflected on the scoreboard and a wonderful display from the Kiltubrid keeper ensured they held out for a 4-5 to 0-8 win in a most entertaining game.
Bornacoola players on duty were: Shane Sullivan Ciaran Campbell, Dillon Hackett, Fergal Hackett, Robert O’Beirne, Kevin Shanley, Liam Mulligan, Karl Mallon, Gearoid Mulligan, Ronan Mulligan, Brian Duffy, Liam Jones, Patrick Kozack, Kevin Mulligan
40 Years of Scór
Well done to all involved with Scór Liatroma for their exceptional organisation of a concert to celebrate 40 years of Scór Liatroma in Ballinamore on Saturday last. Bornacoola were well represented with former All Ireland Recitation winner Aidan Dockery performing superbly on the night and the Connacht title winning Ballad Group from 1983 (featuring Tom Moran, Sean Mc Gowan, Anne Keenan, Philomena Mulligan and Feargal Mc Gill – representing the late Cormac) also on stage. However, it was the successful Set Dancers from the mid-80’s who really brought the house down with Patricia Mc Goldrick, Anne Keenan, Philomena Mulligan, Martina Hackett (in place of the unavailable Teresa Duignan), Micheal Mc Gowan, Sean Beirne, Seoirse Reynolds (in place of an injured Tommy Larkin) and Gerard Mulligan turning back the years to provide a fabulous performance. Comhghairdeas daoibh go léir is do gach duine a bhfuil baint acu le Scór Liatroma i mbliana is tríd dhá scór mbliana den chomórtais.
The Club Draw was held in the Shannon Key West Hotel on Saturday night last. Winners were: Eur100 Mae Mc Gushin Eur20 Joesephine Mc Gushin, Pauline Hanley, John Duffy Pat Farrell (Dromod) and Benny Kenny.
The Division 3 team played their third game of the competition on Sunday last when they took on Drumkeerin in the Park. A goal from early substitute Alan Croghan helped the Bors to a commanding half time lead of eight points. However, the introduction of Francis Davitt saw a re-energised Drumkeerin in the second half and a terrific comeback from the visitors saw them come up just short as the Bors held on for a 1-12 to 0-11 victory.
Team: Gerry Gearty, John Reynolds, Seamus Mallon, Sean Ryan, Damian Mc Guinness, Brendan Duignan, Mervyn Howard, Feargal Howard, Paul Hackett, Jonathan Duffy, Shane Conroy, Damian Moran, Declan Shanley, Brian Conroy and Ollie Vaughan . Sub used: Alan Croghan
