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.
