Bornacoola GAA Club Notes 25/09/2017

Senior Relegation 

Annaduff were the opposition in last Sunday morning’s Senior Championship Relegation final in Cloone and after a close contest, it was the Bors who survived with Senior status intact on a 2-12 to 2-10 scoreline. The game was packed with drama from the very first minute and after a riveting first half, it was the men in Black and Amber who entered the dressing rooms a point in front, 0-7 to 0-6. The decisive period of the game was probably the first ten minutes of the second half as Bornacoola dominated possession and scored 1-3 without reply.   However, full credit to our neighbours who rallied admirably and scored two goals of their own to level the game with ten minutes remaining. But it was the Bors who struck next – a Damian Moran free was batted out by the Annaduff defence and Sean Mc Keon was on hand, with a little help from Ronan Mulligan, to finish to the Annaduff net and from there, the Bors saw out the closing stages relatively comfortably to ensure a 2-12 to 2-10 win. Well done to the panel and the two Declans on retaining Senior status for another year. Team and Scorers on Sunday were: Mark Mc Closkey, Brian Duffy (0-1), Conor Mc Cauley (0-1), David Mulligan, Damian Mc Guinness, Jason Conroy, Shane Conroy, Gary Mc Closkey, Michael Duignan, Philip Howard (0-1), Sean Mc Keon (1-0), Ollie Vaughan (0-1), Brian Conroy, Damian Moran (1-7) and Ronan Mulligan. Subs used: Liam Mulligan, Trevor Howard (0-1), Mervyn Howard and Kevin Mulligan.

Club Draw and Golden Goal 

The Club Draw takes place this Saturday night in the Brandywell. Usual prizes will be on offer but we will also be holding the draw for the top prize of €500 in the Golden Goal competition from the All Ireland final. Should be an interesting night! 

Hallowe’en Fancy Dress 

On Sunday night, October 29th, the Club will be holding a Hallowe’en Fancy Dress party in the Copper still – music will be by D.J Damian (Mc Guinness) and a great night is ensured judging by last year. Put it in the diary!
