Bornacoola/St Mary's 2-13 Aughawillan 3-7

The Bornacoola/St Mary’s Ladies played their third match of the 2018 League season on Sunday morning last as they hosted Aughawillan's second team in Dromod. After a topsy-turvy encounter, they picked up their second victory but were left clinging on in the final few minutes as Aughawillan came with a late onslaught which threatened to derail their league ambitions. 

After a bright early opening the girls spurned a number of scoring chances but after settling in they managed to hold a four-point interval lead. A barnstorming third quarter saw the girls into a commanding position before the last quarter Aughawillan dominance aided by two goals which reduced the lead to a mere kick of the ball. The girls held out after a most enjoyable and competitive contest played in the first spring-like conditions of 2018. 

They are out again on Sunday morning next as they make the short journey to Annaduff to take on the home side at 11am with League Semi Final placings to be decided. 

On duty, on Sunday morning last were Caroline Guckian, Jasmine Maye, Cora McCauley, Emily Reynolds, Lorraine Guckian, Enya Guckian, Kasey Bruen, Alison McKeon, Aisling Leahy, Sara Crowe, Rachel McGarry, Hannah Reynolds, Lisa Guckian, Hannah Bird, Tanya Boyle and Ellen Woods.
