Seniors retain league status ahead of Championship opener

posted 24 Jul 2017, 03:28 by bornacoola leitrim

The Seniors retained their Division 2 status when they dispatched Glencar/Manorhamilton on Friday night last in the league. In a close game, the Bors held out for a narrow 0-9 to 0-7 victory over the visitors to Dromod.  

The Senior Championship kicks off on Saturday evening next when Bornacoola face Annaduff in Cloone at 6pm. Best of look to all involved. Round 2 takes place the following week when Cloone will again host our game against St Marys, this time at 5.30pm. It’s a double bill on that night (Saturday, 5th August) as the Juniors begin their championship campaign at 7pm against Sean O Heslins.

Division 4  Promotion Play-Off

Bornacoola 0-11 Aughawillan 2-10

Our Division 4 team faced Aughawillan in a promotion play-off on Sunday morning last in Fenagh. Bornacoola dominated the opening period but squandered a number of good chances and were made to pay when the Willies scored an opportune goal towards the end of the half which meant the teams were level at the break, 1-3 to 0-6. 

The Bors enjoyed the best of the third quarter and entering the final five minutes were three points to the good. However, the Willies finished very strongly and aided by a well taken goal, took the lead as the clock ticked down. 

A late Aiden Reilly point brought the game to extra time but the Bors failed to score in the two additional periods and it was Aughawillan who deservedly secured promotion and a place in the league final on a scoreline of 2-10 to 0-11. 

Bor team on duty was Mark Mc Closkey, Liam Mulligan, David Mulligan, Brian Reilly, Brian Duffy, Shane Conroy, Kevin Mulligan, Trevor Howard, Michael Duignan, Sean Muldowney, Ronan Mulligan, Jonathan Duffy, Danny Farrell, Liam Jones and Aidan Reilly.

Division 2 

Bornacoola 1-14 Aughavas 0-8

Aughavas were the visitors to Dromod on Saturday evening last for an entertaining game in Division 2 of the league. The first half was an open affair and both sides passed up some excellent goal chances. The Bors in particular created three one on ones but failed to convert on each occasion although the power and directness of Ollie Vaughan and Philip Howard was causing plenty of problems for the Aughavas man. 

At the other end, keeper Mar Mc Closkey was relieved to see one effort from the visitors crash off the crossbar and a second go just beyoned his right hand post. However, it was the Bors who held the upper hand at half time, leading by 0-7 to 0-4. 

The key score of the game was a second half goal finished to the net by sub Brian Conroy which ensured a comfortable finish to the game for the home side as the Bors held out for a 1-14 to 0-8 victory. 

Team on duty was Mark mc Closkey, David Mulligan, Conor Mc Cauley, Brian Duffy, Shane Conroy, Jason Conroy, Damian Mc Guinness, Michael Duignan, Gary Mc Closkey, Sean Mc Keon, Damian Moran, Allan Croghan, Philip Howard, Ollie Vaughan and Ronan Mulligan. Sub used was Brian Conroy.

Division 4 

Bornacoola 2-20 Mohill 2-5

Another good performance and another two points for our Junior team as they overcame Mohill on Sunday morning last in Dromod. Bornacoola dominated the opening half but despite creating a number of goal chances, only Liam Jones’ effort found the net and ensured a seven point half time lead – 1-9 to 0-5. 

A goal from Ronan Mulligan midway through the second half effectively ended the game as a contest though Mohill tried hard until the end. Final score was 2-20 to 2-5 for the Bors. 

Panel was Mark Mc Closkey, Liam Jones, David Mulligan, Brian Reilly, Kevin Myulligan, Shane Conroy, Brian Duffy, Michael Duignan, Trevor Howard, Daniel Farrell, Ronan Mulligan, Liam Jones, Jonathan Duffy, Robert O Beirne, Aidan Reilly, Conor Hackett, Tony Shanley, Sean Muldowney, Gearoid Mulligan and Patrick Kozak.

Mixed Fortunes in busy week for Seniors

posted 7 Jun 2017, 05:19 by bornacoola leitrim

Division 2 It was a busy week for our Senior team as they played both Annaduff and St Marys in the league. 

First up was the local derby with Annaduff away from home on Wedneday evening last; a cracker of a goal from Ollie Vaughan put the Bors in a good position mid-way through the second half and a 1-6 to 0-7 lead; but it was the home side who finished the stronger and were good value for their 0-12 to 1-7 victory. 

On Sunday morning, St Marys were the visitors to Dromod. In the opening minute, Ollie Vaughan again goaled and ensured the Bors would get an early lead that they didn’t subsequently relinquish. Mary’s however played some great football in the opening period and were unfortunate to be five points adrift at the interval. The Bors improved considerably in the second period and aided by an Allan Croghan goal, eventually sealed a comfortable 2-19 to 0-10 victory. 

Team on Sunday was Mark Mc Closkey, Jason Conroy, David Mulligan, Brian Duffy, Shane Conroy, Conor Mc Cauley, Damien Mc Guinness, Michael Duignan, Gary Mc Closkey, Danny Farrell, Sean Mc Keon, Allan Croghan, Philip Howard, Ollie Vaughan and Trevor Howard. Subs used included Brian Conroy, Ronan Mulligan, Roy Keenan and Kevin Mulligan.
