Masonite Senior Championship
Bornacoola suffered a one point defeat to Aughnasheelin in the deciding game in our Senior championship group in Cloone on Saturday last. In a game that never really got going until the second half, Aughnasheelin showed much greater hunger and were well deserving of their victory on a 1-8 to 0-10 scoreline. However, the Bors do progress to the quarter finals by virtue of our earlier victory over Carrigallen and Mohill will provide the opposition in a game that will be played on the weekend of August 23rd.
Team and scorers: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Conor Mc Cauley, Jason Conroy, John Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Niall Mc Gowan, David O Connor (0-3), Colm Farrell, Feargal Howard, Niall O Connor, Damian Moran, Philip Howard, Mark Mc Closkey (0-5) and Brian Conroy. Subs used: Jonathan Duffy (0-1), Trevor Howard, Sean Mc Keon (0-1) and Declan Shanley.
The Junior team ensured their progression to the quarter final of the Junior A Championship with an impressive victory over St Mary’s on Sunday evening last in Ballinamore. Goals from John Bohan and Robert Moran proved to be the key scores of a game that finished 2-6 to 0-8 in favour of the Bors.
Team and scorers: Bobby Shanley, John Reynolds, Brian Reilly, Mervyn Howard, Sean McKeon, Shane Conroy, David Mulligan, Paul Hackett (0-1), Robert Moran (1-2), Ollie Vaughan (0-1), Declan Shanley, Jonathan Duffy, Alan Croghan, Trevor Howard(0-1), John Bohan (1-1) subs used: Aidan Reilly and John Shanley.

In congratulating the U-14’s and their team management last week, I omitted the name of Noel Mc Closkey. Noel of course has been involved with the U-14’s for the last number of years and has played a hugely important role in all of their successes. My apologies for the oversight Noel. We also want to say a word of thanks to all of the parents of the players for making themselves available to drive to games throughout the year saving the club a considerable amount on transport costs.
