The Ladies recorded their first victory of the season with a win over Fenagh on Friday evening last.
The Junior A team kept themselves in contention for promotion with a fine victory over Mohill in Dromod on Sunday morning last. A first half goal blitz which saw Aidan Reilly, Damian Moran (from the penalty spot) and Declan Shanley (twice) find the back of the Mohill net was the platform for this win as Bornacoola built on their early dominance to finish 4-9 to 1-7 winners.
Team and scorers Dara Gavigan, John Reynolds, Seamus Mallon, Brian Reilly, Mervyn Howard, Shane Conroy, David Mulligan, Damian Moran (1-3), Trevor Howard (0-1), Declan Shanley (2-0), Jonahan Duffy (0-1), Niall Mc Gowan, Ollie Vaughan (0-1), Fergal Howard (0-1) and Aidan Reilly (1-0), Subs: Alan Croghan, Anthony Mulligan (0-1), Feargal Mc Gill, Roy Keenan. Next game is this Saturday evening at 7pm v Allen Gaels in Dromod.
The Junior C team played Mohill on Sunday afternoon last and missing a number of regular starters left too high a mountain to climb as the visitors took the spoils on a final score of 1-11 to 0-5.
Team on duty was Dara Gavigan, David Faughnan, Brian Reilly, Tony Bohan, Roy Keenan, Brendan Duignan, Anthony Mulligan, Gerry Gearty, Alan Croghan, Conor Mc Weeney, Ollie Vaughan, Daniel Farrell, Anthony Mulligan, Ollie Mc Brearty, Jackie Conboy, Sub Alan Bohan. No game this weekend in Division 5.
All at the club send their congratulations to former player Derek “Digger” Duignan (son of Seamus and Teresa) and his wife Renea on the birth of their first child – Jed Feidhlim Duignan – in Sydney last week.
The U-16’s played Leitrim Gaels in Dromod on Friday last and despite leading for long spells of the game, lost their discipline to some degree and ended up on the wrong side of a 3-8 to 3-3 scoreline. Their next game is this Friday evening in Gortletteragh at 7pm.
The U-12’s will travel to Carrigallen this Wednesday evening to participate in the first blitz of the year and the action will get underway at 7pm.
Copies of the excellent Scéal Liatroma (a review of the last 25 years of the GAA in Leitrim) are currently available from Club Secretary Shane Reynolds at the reduced price of Eur10 if you are interested in purchasing a copy.
