Bornacoola GAA Club Notes 29/08/2018

Club Draw – The Club Draw for August will take place this Saturday night in the Weir Lodge Rooskey – a great night promised and we hope to see you all there.

Junior B Championship – The Junior team sealed their place in the County Semi Final with an impressive 2-13 to 1-10 victory over Glencar/Manor in Páirc Seán on Sunday morning last. The Bornacoola victory was based on an excellent first half display, albeit it was Manor who took an early lead when they scored the first goal of the game after 12 minutes. The Bors hit back with an excellent individual goal from Anthony Mulligan and from then until half time dominated both possession and the scoring exchanges to lead by 1-13 to 1-4 at half time. Glencar/Manor were the better team in a second half during which the Bors would only score once – a crucial goal from the boot of Brian Conroy and it was this which ensured a semi-finial place next month. Team on duty was Conor Hackett, Tony Shanley, Seamus Mallon, Luke Jones, Robert O Beirne, Mervyn Howard, Gearoid Mulligan, Michael Duignan, Anthony Mulligan, Noel Mc Enroe, Shane Conroy, Roy Keenan, Brian Conroy, Liam Jones and Jonathan Duffy. Subs were Mark Mc Closkey, John, Shanley, Gerry Gearty and Kieran Campbell.

Senior Championship – Melvin Gaels provided the opposition in our penultimate group game in the Senior Championship in Páirc Seán on Saturday evening last and for long periods of the game the Bors gave as good as they got. The Gaels were the better team though and held a 0-8 to 0-3 lead before Bornacoola’s best period of the game came in the third quarter and at one stage they had brought the contest back to a 2 point game, 0-10 to 0-8 with only about 15 minutes remaining. However, the Gaels finished very strong, scoring three goals as the clock ticked down and ensuring a victory on a 3-14 to 0-10 scoreline. St Mary’s provide the opposition in our final group game on the weekend after next.  


Minor Championship – Rinn Gaels played Glencar/Manorhamilton in the semi-final of the Division 2 Minor Championship in Gortletteragh on Monday August 20th and enjoyed a great 0-15 to 1-8 victory.
