Senior Championship - Rd 5

Drumreilly 2-10 Bornacoola 1-7

Senior Championship We exited the Championship on Saturday evening last in disappointing circumstances when Drumreilly deservedly took both points in an engaging game in Páirc Seán.

 After a good start where the Bors led by 0-3 to 0-1, Drumreilly struck clinically for two well taken goals leaving the Bors on the back foot going into the second half, six points in arrears – 2-3 to 0-3. Drumreilly got the fast start in the second half and extended the lead to 8 points before the Bors hit back with a goal from Allan Croghan followed by a Damian Mc Guinness point. 

However, four wides in a row and the passing up of an excellent one on one goal chance proved crucial as Bornacoola failed to capatilise on the scoreboard from a period of solid pressure. Drumreilly eventually reasserted their dominance towards the end of the game and finished strongly to run out 6 point winners as Bornacoola finished the game with 13 men following two late dismissals. 

Team on duty was Mark Mc Closkey, David Mulligan, Jason Conroy, Brian Duffy, Shane Conroy, Damian Mc Guinness (0-1), Allan Croghan (1-1), Michael Duignan, Gary Mc Cloksey, Brian Conroy (0-1), Sean Mc Keon, Ollie Vaughan (0-2), Trevor Howard, Conor Mc Cauley, Philip Howard (0-1), Subs used were Liam Mulligan, Ronan Mulligan, Mervyn Howard and Kevin Shanley.
