Bors in Group B for Senior Championship

posted 25 Apr 2017, 02:03 by bornacoola leitrim

Bornacoola have been paired with neighbours Annaduff as well as Glencar/Manorhamilton, St Patrick’s Dromahair, Drumreilly and St Mary’s in the group stage of the 2017 Senior Championship. 

This year, for the first time, the Championship will be based on two groups of six teams and in last night's live Shannonside FM draw, Bornacoola found themselves in Group B. 

                                                                    Action from Leitrim SFC 2012 - Bornacoola v Drumreilly

The game of most interest to neutrals will be the clash of Bornacoola and Annaduff. The sides last met in the Relegation semi-final last September when the Bors came from behind to record a two point victory. It was a similar story when the sides met in 2014 at the same stage of the Championship, when the Bors came from behind to seal a 0-14 to 1-7 victory. Annaduff's last championship win against the Bors was ina 7th/8th place play-off in 2013. 

Glencar/Manor and St Marys will rightly be regarded as favourites for the group and the Bors have not had a good record against either side in recent years. In 2015, Bornacoola suffered a 1-18 to 0-7 defeat to Manor and in 2016 St Mary's triumphed over the Black and Amber men by 2-13 to 1-10.  Our last victory over Manor came in the 2011 Championship in a classic game in which the Bors triumphed by a single point under the tutelage of Seamus Mallon, while one has to go all the way back to 2007 to find a Bornacoola victory over St Marys in the Championship.

Dromahair earned their place in the Senior Championship when they captured the county Intermediate crown in 2014. Since then, they have proven somewhat of a bogey team for the Bors with Championship victories coming the North Leitrim men's way in both 2015 (when they triumped by three points) and last year when they edged home on a 2-7 to 0-12 scoreline in a close game in Ballinamore. 

Bornacoola's last Championship outing against Drumreilly came in 2012, when the Black and Amber were comfortable 0-14 to 0-6 winners. 

Early goals seal victory for Drumreilly

Division 2

Bornacoola 2-10 Drumreilly 3-10

The Seniors played Drumreilly under floodlights on Friday evening last in the Leitrim Centre of Excellence in what was their third game of the league campaign. However it was Drumreilly who made by far the better start and three first half goals left them 7 points clear at one stage. 

The Bors did respond with two goals of their own – Anthony Mulligan and Kevin Shanley supplying – but despite reducing the gap to just one point midway through the second half, Drumreilly finished strongly and recorded a 3-10 to 2-10 victory. 

On duty for Bornacoola were Conor Hackett, Brian Duffy, David Mulligan, Jason Conroy, Allan Croghan, Conor Mc Cauley, Mervyn Howard, Gary Mc Closkey, Damian Moran, Anthony Mulligan, Sean Mc Keon, Roy Keenan, Ronan Mulligan, Trevor Howard and Kevin Shanley. Subs used were Kevin Mulligan, Liam Jones and Danny Farrell.

Division 2 

Bornacoola 1-15 Cloone 2-10

The Seniors had to come from behind against a strong Cloone team to earn their first two points of the season in an entertaining game in Dromod on Saturday evening last.

A first half goal for the visitors left them with a two point half time lead but Bornacoola showed great energy in the second period with some of the younger players such as Conor Hackett, Roy Keenan, Mervyn Howard, Ronan Mulligan and Kevin Shanley proving crucial in earning the victory. It was the latter named who netted the crucial goal for the Bors that sealed a 1-15 to 2-10 victory. 

Next game in the Division is this Friday evening against Drumreilly in the Leitrim GAA Centre of Excellence in Annaduff. 

Team on duty was: Conor Hackett, Brian Duffy, David Mulligan, Jason Conroy, Allan Croghan, Conor Mc Cauley, Mervyn Howard, Gary Mc Closkey, Damian Moran, Anthony Mulligan, Sean Mc Keon, Roy Keenan, Ronan Mulligan, Trevor Howard and Kevin Shanley. Subs used Kevin Mulligan. 

Late Late Show a great success

On Sunday night last, the Club held a fundraising event in Lough Rynn Castle and a fantastic night was had by all.Tommy Moran was in fine form as he put our guests through their paces. A mixture of music, chat and Irish devilment was the order of the night.

The organising committee would like to thank everyone who helped to make the night such a great success including Tommy Moran and all of the guests, Ciarian Reidy & the staff at Lough Rynn, all our sponsors for the night & throughout the year and of course each and every member of the audience.

 It was a great to see so many locals and extended families out supporting the Club, and community spirit alive and well. 

Three in a row for the Juniors!

 The Junior team made it three wins in a row when they overcame Ballinaglera in and entertaioning Division 4 league game in  Dromod on Sunday morning last. The win was based on an excellent first half showing and while Ballinaglera came strongly into the game in the final quarter, the Bors were good value for a 2-13 to 1-11 victory. 

Juniors make it two wins from three

Division 4

Bornacoola 2-6 St Marys 0-7

The Junior team made it two wins on the trot when they had an excellent victory over St Marys on Saturday evening last. The Carrick team started the brighter, recording the first four scores of the game, but a young Bornacoola team gradually edged their way back into the contest  to find themselves just a point adrfit at the interval, 0-5 to 0-4. 

A whirlwind start to the second half – which saw goals from Ronan Mulligan and Danny Farrell – had the Bors in the driving seat and despite a period of 16 minutes in the middle of the second period when neither side could trouble the umpires, it was the Bors who deservedly triumphed on a 2-6 to 0-7 scoreline at the final whistle.  

Team on duty was Mark Mc Closkey, Liam Mulligan, Jonn Shanley, Brian Reilly, Gearoid Mulligan, David Mulligan, Kevin Mulligan, Mervyn Howard, Brian Duffy, Liam Jones, Trevor Howard, Ronan Mulligan, Danny Farrell, Aidan Reilly and Jonathan Duffy. Subs were Luke Jones and Conor Hackett. Next game is against Ballinaglera this Sunday in Ballinaglera at 12noon.
