Carrigallen secure first ever U21 B Championship Title

Carrigallen were crowned U21 B Champions when they defeated a battling Bornacoola side on a scoreline of 2-10 to 1-9 in Cloone last Saturday.  Carrigallen last won the U21 A Title as Carrigallen Harps in 1995 and they will hope that this title will propel them to bigger things on the Senior circuit in the coming years. Both teams had to compete with the elements and heavy downpours during the game left underfoot conditions difficult. Despite this, the game was very enjoyable and fiercely contested throughout.  Bornacoola will point to the concession of goals in either half as contributing to their downfall on the day.  However, they must be complemented on their battling qualities as they reduced a 9 point defecit at one stage to 4 at the final whistle.  Carrigallen were worthy winners on the day and congratulations to them on their success.
