The Bornacoola U21 team put in a battling performance in difficult conditions against Drumkeerin in the quarter final of the 13-a-side championship in Drumreilly on Saturday last and were rewarded for their efforts with a nail biting one point victory and a place in the semi-finals. The key score of the game was a goal just before the interval when midfielder Damian Moran followed up on his own shot to find the net and give the Bors a two point lead at half time. Despite a succession of injuries and the difficult weather conditions, the lads held on throughout the second half to record a memorable 1-5 to 0-7 victory.
The team on duty was: Damian Mc Gowan, Conor Mc Cauley, Mervyn Howard, Darren Mc Gushin, Paul Hackett, David Mulligan, Feargal Howard (0-3), Damian Moran (1-0), Harry Comiskey, Oliver Vaughan, Alan Croghan (0-1), Sean Mc Keon (0-1) and Declan Shanley.
A hugely understrength Bornacoola gave a fine account of themselves against Dromahaire in the Shield play-off game on Sunday last in Leitrim Village. An early goal for the North Leitrim team left the Bors chasing the game throughout but there were some fine scores recorded in a 1-13 to 0-12 defeat. Team on duty was: Feargal Mc Gill, John Mc Govern, Seamus Mallon, Mervyn Howard, Niall Mc Gowan, Damian Mc Guinness, David Mulligan, Conor Mc Cauley, Feargal Howard, Declan Shanley, Oliver Vaughan, Sean Mc Keon, Brian Conroy, Damian Moran and Trevor Howard.
