Borris Ileigh Juvenile GAA Club
U12 Hurling: Last Saturday our U12’s were in action in Group two of the Premier end games in Littleton. Our first game was a semi final fixture against our neighbours Drom & Inch who had earlier defeated Rosegreen in the quarter final. Our side sprung into action from the start with fine points from James Devaney and Raymond Mc Cormack. Drom fought back well and responded with a goal. Some further points from Fintan Holland, James Devaney, Ray Mc Cormack and a pointed 65 from Kevin Maher meant we took a 7pts to 1-2 lead into the dressing room at half time. The second half was a more tense occasion with Joseph Boyle, Oran Bergin and Kevin Maher in defence playing well and soaking up a lot of pressure. A fine save by John McGrath from a Drom & Inch free helped Borris maintain a slight advantage. The final score was Borris Ileigh 10pts to Drom Inch 1 –04.
Our second U12 team travel to Dolla on Thursday evening to participate in a tournament hosted by the Silvermines Club. Other teams participating are Silvermines, Newport and Roscrea.
U14: Our U14’s got of to a winning start in the plate competition with a victory over Silvermines in the opening round. The next fixture is away to Shannon Rovers on Wednesday 5th of September.
