Division 3 

Drumkeerin 2-18 Bornacoola 3-9

Our Intermediate team travelled to Drumkeerin on Friday evening. In a hugely entertaining game, Drumkeerin got the better start, and established an early lead but the Bors battled back and two goals – one from Ronan Mulligan, one from Robert O Beirne – left the game balanced on a knife edge at half time as the home side led by 1-9 to 2-5. 

Early in the second half, Allan Croghan goaled to put the Bors in front. Drumkeerin had regained a slender advantage going into the final quarter, and when they goaled with five minutes left on the clock, it finally killed off the Bor challenge. Final score was Bornacoola 3-9 Drumkeerin 2-18. 

This completes our Division 3 campaign for 2021; all eyes now turn to the Championship.
