Junior C Championship
The third team exited the championship on Sunday last as a physically more imposing Leitrim Gaels proved a bridge too far in the semi-final of the competition, played in Annaduff. The Gaels played with the aid of a decent breeze in the first half and despite a well taken goal midway through, the Bors were very much in contention at half time, just five points in arrears. However, Bornacoola never got going up front in the second half and Leitrim Gaels were worthy 2-11 to 0-7 winners at the full time whistle.
The team on duty was: Dara Gavigan, Tony Bohan, John “Barnes” Shanley, Sean Ryan, Dermot Shanley, Christy Bohan, Kevin Canning, Peter Mallon, Richard Bohan, Biran Mallon, Gerry Gearty, Kevin Mallon, Seoirse Reynolds, Declan Conboy and Alan Bohan. Subs introduced were Jackie Conboy, Damian Mc Gowan and Harry Comiskey.
Bornacoola GAA Club Draw
Our thanks to all who supported the monthly club draw that took place last Saturday night in the Copper Still. Music on the night was by Brian Williams and winners were as follows. €100; Jimmy McCormack, €20each; Margaret McGowan, Shane Reynolds, Jackie Conboy, David Conroy, Aideen Harte with a meal voucher sponsored by The Copper Still being won by Enda Delaney.
The Senior team played a heavily understrength Sean O Heslins in the Shield play-off in Cloone on Sunday morning last. Two first half goals from Colm Farrell and Philip Howard left Bornacoola eleven points ahead at the interval and laid the foundations for what was ultimately a comfortable victory on a 2-13 to 1-7 scoreline.
The team on duty was Feargal Mc Gill, Seamus Mallon, Morgan Shanley (0-1), Damian Mc Guinness, John Mc Guinness (0-1), Conor Mc Cauley (0-2), Niall Mc Gowan, Colm Farrell (1-1), Niall O Connor, Declan Shanley (0-2), Sean Mc Keon (0-1), Jonathan Duffy, Trevor Howard, Michael Duignan and Philip Howard (1-4). Subs used Feargal Howard, Jason Conroy, Brian Conroy, Mervyn Howard and Bobby Shanley. The next game in this competition is now effectively a semi-final clash between ourselves and Dromahaire on Sunday week with the winners proceeding to the Shield Final against Carrigallen on October 31st.
Our final game in the Masonite Division 1 league comes this Sunday when St Marys are the visitors to Dromod. Defeat will see Bornacoola lose their Division 1 status for the first time since 1998 so it is a very big game for the club.
U-21 B Championship
Drumkeerin will be our quarter final opponents in the U-21 B Championship with this clash provisionally scheduled to take place on Saturday week, October 24th (time and venue to be confirmed).
