Junior B Championship

Bornacoola 2-13 Glencar/Manorhamilton 1-10

The Junior team sealed their place in the County Semi Final with an impressive 2-13 to 1-10 victory over Glencar/Manor in Páirc Seán on Sunday morning last. 

The Bornacoola victory was based on an excellent first half display, albeit it was Manor who took an early lead when they scored the first goal of the game after 12 minutes. The Bors hit back with an excellent individual goal from Anthony Mulligan and from then until half time dominated both possession and the scoring exchanges to lead by 1-13 to 1-4 at half time. 

Glencar/Manor were the better team in a second half during which the Bors would only score once – a crucial goal from the boot of Brian Conroy and it was this which ensured a semi-finial place next month. 

Team on duty was Conor Hackett, Tony Shanley, Seamus Mallon, Luke Jones, Robert O Beirne, Mervyn Howard, Gearoid Mulligan, Michael Duignan, Anthony Mulligan, Noel Mc Enroe, Shane Conroy, Roy Keenan, Brian Conroy, Liam Jones and Jonathan Duffy. Subs were Mark Mc Closkey, John, Shanley, Gerry Gearty and Kieran Campbell.
