Masonite Senior Championship
Unfortunately County champions Glencar/Manorhamilton proved too strong for Bornacoola in the replay of the County semi-final on Saturday evening last. Despite a strong opening half hour, the Bors found themselves a point down at half time as the North Leitrim men scored a goal with the last action of the half. A Sean Mc Keon goal offered hope midway through the second half but despite a valiant effort, it was Manorhamilton who finished the stronger and held on for a 1-10 to 1-7 victory. Bornacoola team and scorers: Feargal Mc Gill, Damian Mc Guinness, Morgan Shanley, Jason Conroy, John Mc Guinness, Conor Mc Cauley (0-2), Niall O Connor, Michael Duignan (0-1), Colm Farrell, Sean Mc Keon (1-0), David O Connor (0-1), Mark Mc Closkey (0-3), Brian Conroy, Damian Moran, Philip Howard. Subs used Jonathan Duffy, Feargal Howard, and Trevor Howard

Ladies Junior Final
The Ladies team took on Dromahaire in the County Junior final on Sunday afternoon in Leitrim village. It was their second appearance in a final this year but unfortunately the North Leitrim girls proved too strong and ultimately recorded a comfortable victory. However, it has been a season of progress for the girls under their new management of Vinny Canning and Sean Mc Cauley and they will feel they can have a real cut at Championship glory in 2010.

The Junior C team got their championship campaign underway with an excellent 0-13 to 1-9 victory over Eslin in Annaduff on Sunday last.

Masonite Senior Championship
Bornacoola and Glencar/Manorhamilton played out a thrilling draw in the semi-final of the Masonite Senior Championship in Páirc Seán on Sunday last.

However, Manor were reinvigorated after half time and a well taken goal midway through the second half set the game up for a tense finale. While both sides had chances to win the game, neither were able to make the decisive breakthrough and the teams had to settle for a 1-6 to 0-9 draw. The replay takes place this Saturday in Carrick at 5.30pm.
