INTERMEDIATE LADIES – The Bornacoola/St Mary’s ladies were back in action on Sunday last in Ballinaglera as they took on Drumkeerin in their first Intermediate Championship group game and it was a winning start for the girls as they accounted for the opposition on a 5-15 to 1-9 scoreline after an entertaining hour’s football played in testing conditions as the temperature rose yet again. The girls were out of the blocks early and had three goals on the board during the first quarter which gave them a winning platform allied to very resolute defending which kept the raiding opposition at bay. Drumkeerin’s cause was not aided by an unfortunate knee injury to influential midfielder Bridget Gallagher which forced an early exit from the game and we wish her the very best in her recovery. The girls held a 4-9 to 0-6 interval lead and while the second half was very evenly contested, our ladies saw the game out to take the spoils in impressive fashion. Their next match in the group will be on the bank holiday weekend as they take on Fenagh with matches against St Francis and Mohill to follow. In action on Sunday last were: Caroline Guckian, Cora McCauley, Kathy Butler, Joanne McGushin, Enya Guckian, Lorraine Guckian, Emily Reynolds, Alison McKeon, Kasey Bruen (1-1), Sara Crowe (0-3), Aisling Leahy (2-1), Hannah Reynolds, Sarah Reynolds (1-1), Kelly Howard (1-6), Lisa Guckian (0-1), Hannah Farrell (0-2), Isabelle Chandler, Ellen Woods and Maeve Cryan.

U12 GIRLS – Best wishes to our 15 aside girls in the semi-final of the U12 competition, they play Keeldra Gaels tomorrow Tuesday 24th July at 7pm in Páirc Naomh Mhuire. Our 13 aside girls finished level on points with Ballinamore and Kiltubrid and were drew in a playoff with Ballinamore to battle it out for second and third place with Kiltubrid having a bye.    On Thursday 19th our girls met Ballinamore in Páirc Naomh Mhuire. It was a ferocious battle on the field with nothing between the two sides as both teams put on some fine displays of football. However, luck was on Ballinamore’s side and they took their scores very well to come away winners on the evening.  We are now into the B Q-Finals, please keep an eye on facebook for further games.

Best wishes to all the girls.
