Senior Championship - Relegation Semi Final

Bornacoola 0-9 Drumreilly 0-13

Drumreilly were the opposition in last Saturday’s Senior Relegation semi-final played in Cloone. 

The Bors got off to a slow start, failing to score for almost 25 minutes - points from Anthony Mulligan and Cian Mallon got us off the board eventually, but trailing by 0-7 to 0-2 at half time we faced an uphill battle in the second half. 

THe introduction of Michael Duignan at half time added to Bor's scoring options and he was responsible for two of the Bor's second half scores but while we did manage to narrow the gap to just three points at one stage in the second half, Drumreilly retained control throughout and were fully deserving of their 0-13 to 0-9 victory. 

We now enter the relegation final where we will play either Aughnasheelin or Dromahair with senior status for 2019 at stake. 

Team on Saturday was Daniel Farrell, Brian Duffy, Gary Mc Closkey, Jason Conroy, Mervyn Howard, Conor Mc Cauley, Damian Mc Guinness, Allan Croghan, Anthony Mulligan (0-4), Philip Howard, Ollie Vaughan, Ronan Mulligan, Brian Conroy (0-1), Sean Mc Keon and Cian Mallon (0-2). Subs used were Michael Duignan (0-2), Liam Jones, Robert O Beirne
