Masonite Senior League
We travelled to Manorhamilton on Sunday last for our penultimate game in Division 1 of the Masonite Senior League. A poor first half performance from Bornacoola left the home side 1-8 to 0-3 ahead at the break. A second half goal from Colm Farrell gave the Bors a glimmer of hope as the margin was closed to four points at one stage, but Glencar/Manor closed out the game for a comfortable 1-13 to 1-6 victory. Team was: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Seamus Mallon, Jason Conroy, John Mc Guinness, Conor Mc Cauley, Niall Mc Gowan, Michael Duignan (0-2), Colm Farrell (1-0), Trevor Howard, David O Connor, Feargal Howard, Brian Conroy, Mark Mc Closkey (0-4) and Declan Shanley. Subs used: Jonathan Duffy, Mervyn Howard, Morgan Shanley. With only one game remaining in the league against St Marys, Bornacoola have it all to do to avoid relegation to Division 2 for the first time since 1997.
The U-14’s had no game this week but will face Aughnasheelin on Friday night next in Aughnasheelin at 7pm when they will be hoping to build on the three straight victories already earned in their group.
The 3rd team travelled to Manorhamilton needing at least a draw to have a chance of staying in the division. Playing with a lot of pride, they battled hard throughout and managed to earn a 0-11 to 0-11 draw. It remains to be seen whether this will be enough to avoid relegation, but at least the lads have given themselves a fighting chance and indeed played some very good football in their first year in Division 4. Well done to all involved and a special word of thanks to the management team of Michael Mallon and Seoirse Reynolds for their efforts throughout the year.
The Minors are in action in Cornageeha this Wednesday (July 22nd) when they play Gortletteragh at 7pm.
The Club Draw takes place this Saturday night in the Copper Still with music by the one and only Tom Moran. As always a great night’s entertainment guaranteed.
The U-12 blitz continues on Monday night next, July 27th when Annaduff travel to Dromod to take on the young Bors. The action gets underway at 7pm; if you haven’t been to one of the blitz evenings yet, it is well worth your while to go along and see the excellent work that is being carried out with underage players in Leitrim. There is some great football to enjoy and a real sporting atmosphere prevails. .
