Bornacoola 1-9 Annaduff 1-12

 Annaduff were the visitors to Dromod on Saturday evening last, and a large crowd witnessed a close game full of the usual intensity associated with the local derby.

It was the visitors who started the game in impressive fashion and after just 20 minutes, they led by 1-6 to 0-1 as the Bors appeared to be in difficulty in several sectors of the field. However, a strong rally approaching half time ensured the Bors registered the final three points of the half, to sit just five points in arrears at the interval. 

When sub Brian Conroy finished to the net 10 minutes into the second half, the gap was narrowed to a single point (1-6 to 1-5) and suddenly the game was in the melting pot. However but this was as close as the Bors managed to get and although it took an excellent save from Annaduff sub keeper Shane Cox to deny Damian Moran a late goal for the home side, it was the visitors who deservedly held on in an entertaining contest by 1-12 to 1-9. 

Next up for Bornacoola are Sean O Heslins who line out in Dromod on Sunday morning next at 12noon. 

Team and scorers were: Conor Hackett, Damian Mc Guinness, Jason Conroy, Brian Duffy, Mervyn Howard (0-1), David Mulligan, Liam Mulligan, Damian Moran (0-3), Alan Croghan (0-1), Cian Mallon, Sean Mc Keon (0-1), Danny Farrell, Ollie Vaughan, Gary Mc Closkey and Ronan Mulligan. Subs; Brian Conroy (1-1), Kevin Mulligan, Kevin Shanley and Colm Farrell.
